Bowe’s Pub was born in 1880, situated just a stone’s throw away from the famous Trinity College. Bowe’s has genuine old world charm about it. It is a little hidden, half way down Fleet Street, with a dark red front and large clock sticking out from the wall, indicating to all it’s time for a dram.
Once the hub for all the various journalists from the local papers on Fleet Street, who would visit Bowe’s to clear their writers block or check in with a source. Today it is still abuzz, this time with local’s and workers whom have stumbled upon this institution and found their ‘spiritual’ home.
You can feel the comradery upon stepping through the door. It is a perfect spot for a quiet dram or catching up with friends. All made easier to do so with their snug. Within the snug you can close yourself away from the world and concentrate on your whiskey and or conversation.
Bowe’s has one of the best whiskey ranges in Dublin, even before the ‘renaissance’ in whiskey. The number of whiskey’s on the shelves changes but they usually have around 227 whiskey’s available. From Irish, to Scottish, Bourbon and Japanese are a few of the key countries that are always at home on their shelves.
Their notoriety for such an extensive whiskey collection was what drew a small group to starting up the Irish Whiskey Society. Their monthly meetings were held upstairs until they grew too big a group to fit in the room. Although this hasn’t stopped this society from visiting Bowe’s after their tasting for a goodnight dram.
