The Secret of the Celts
The Pub the Irish come to Iceland to drink at
What did the Vikings find when they raided Ireland? Beautiful girls, for sure. But when they brought the Celts to Iceland, something they didn’t expect came, too: The Dubliner. Cold beer, smooth whiskey and plenty of Celtic music—live music every night.
Lubricate an Irishman and you get a lot of singing, story-telling to stretch the imagination and plenty of laughter as the poets wax lyrical. No wonder it’s known as the happiest pub in town.
Today, the Dubliner is still totally Celtic in every way. It’s easy to find down in the centre of town but just don’t try to follow their road signs after you’ve had a few drinks. If you fancy yourself as a singer, they’ll even let you try out on their Thursday open mic evenings. You’ll even get a sympathetic audience and you can always get warmed up first at the bar. It would have mystified their forefathers, but now you can often watch little men on a big screen kicking a ball back and forth, while everyone yells and cheers. Now, there’s a tall tale to tell.Dubliner
