Davy Byrne Pub, Dublin - 390
Limited Edition Print
Davy Byrne's 'famous literary pub' on Duke Street, Dublin city centre, is famed for being a frequent haunt of Irish writer James Joyce and is mentioned in his tome 'Dubliners'. The original of this painting hangs proudly in the pub. Despite the cold and damp outside some Dubliners don't mind braving the elements to sit outside and have a cigarette, as you can see in the painting.
Davy Brynes was opened by the man of the same name in 1889. James Joyce as well as being a regular i was also a close friend of the man himself, whom he mentioned in both Ulysses and his short stories Dubliners.
Davy Byrnes was also frequented by the writer Brendan Behan. Byrne was a stout Irish nationalist and let Michael Collins use the room above the pub for meetings of the Irish Republican Brotherhood.
