The Hairy Lemon Pub was christened in memory of one of the city’s great characters who was a dog catcher in the 1950’s. He was reputed to boast a lemon shaped visage and a stubble of gooseberry like hair. This most enjoyable drinking establishment is just about as unconventional as it’s namesake. Even the 19th century house in which it resides is a little ‘outside-the-box’; with years of memorabilia a sitting room suspended in mid air, High Nellie’s, wellies and even Granny’s Kitchen. Unknown to itself, the Hairy Lemon has become one of Dublin’s Trendiest Pubs.
