Bailey review Rate it

Aching to be hip and thoroughly self-conscious, this is not the original Bailey of lore. Before it was torn down years back, the old Bailey featured in James Joyce's Ulysses (Leopold Bloom lived at 7 Eccles Street, which used to be one of the entrances to the bar) and was a vital organ in Dublin's literary life. Today, the new Bailey has decor and drinks prices in step with the chic clientele; the outdoor seating area is a great spot at which to while away an afternoon watching Dubliners on the move. Bring a well-stuffed wallet.
