Blooms Hotel is proud to be affiliated with the world-renowned Oliver St. John Gogarty and Dublin's Left Bank Bar both located nearby.

The Oliver St. John Gogarty , situated in the heart of Temple Bar, is Dublin's most renowned Traditional Irish bar and has received worldwide acclaim for its traditional Irish music, dancing and food.

The Oliver St. John Gogarty is also steeped in history. It is named after Dublin's most famous poet, pilot, politician and avid connoisseur of Guinness. Gogarty himself spent many nights exuding his customary wit in this very haunt. The bar counter is a relic as it was once the counter of the Green Room in the famous Theatre Royal. Even the food has flavours of history with restaurant dishes such as Trinity College chicken which dates back to the 1800's and Ester Dunne Potato Cakes from 1857. 

As you can imagine a visit to The Oliver St. John Gogarty is a unique experience which will be enjoyed by all and is guaranteed to provide fond memories.

Dublin's Left Bank Bar adjacent to The Oliver St. John Gogarty is a trendy late night bar with a difference.

The original building was once part of the Central Bank of Ireland, the centre of the national financial district and held Ireland's gold bullion reserve in its vaults. Witness for yourself the specially moulded coins in the ceilings and walls and the gold bars adorning the Vault Bar. Many of the original features still remain to this day.

You can relax in the comfort of these unique surroundings and enjoy a drink where Ireland's wealth was once safely hoarded. Dublin's Left Bank Bar is open 7 nights a week with music playing from the 70's, 80's and 90's. So, call in and experience it for yourself.
