Directions to Devitts Pub
Perched prominently on the corner of Pleasants and Camden Streets, Devitts sits in the heart of the action, where it overlooks a host of happening hangouts - and the throngs working their way from door to door. In fact, Camden's 'Crawl' can be a challenge for even the hardiest of souls. If visiting all of the nightspots along Camden/Wexford Street in one evening doesn't kill you, it'll surely make you stronger.
Proprietor Willie Devitt (a Limerick man and ex-Dublin hurler) established a premises with an emphasis on Irish sport - GAA, Irish and Munster rugby are featured throughout, and this is echoed in the décor with displays of memorabilia. So essential to the pub's character is this relationship with sport, Devitts is also known as 'The Cusack Stand' (a reference to the famous seating area in Croke Park).
Devitts is a classic watering hole - a 'drinkers' pub' in every sense of the term. There are no flashing LED walls or hipster DJs here - instead, Devitts is renowned as the spot 'for a quiet pint or as a meeting place'. You never know who you might end up rubbing elbows with - from prominent journalists like Con Houlihan to well-known actors like Gabriel Byrne. And the Irish rugby team have been known to pop in for a few pints every so often!
Not many of Dublin's pubs are able to boast a family-run ethic these days - now in its fourth decade, Devitts is in the capable hands of the second generation, and they're not resting on their laurels. Maintaining the old ways, live Trad Sessions are presented three nights a week (downstairs on Thursdays, 'Upstairs at An Poc Fada' Fridays and Saturdays). And then there's also something new, with the introduction of Tapas Nights upstairs (featuring live Flamenco guitar and delicious tapas treats).
Devitts serves a traditional pub-grub menu six days a week (Monday-Saturday, 10.30am-3pm). You can get a 'Full Irish' for breakfast, or the Roast of the Day with all the trimmings for lunch. Or perhaps you might fancy the Soup of the Day, a Burger, or Bangers & Mash. Then there's the most satisfyingly basic option - the ever-popular 'Toasted Special' sandwich done as only Devitts can (toasties are available all day).
Whether you're seeking a laid-back pint, a simple honest meal, great tapas, or a rousing authentic Trad Session, Devitts is a place that honours the past, embraces the present, and looks forward to welcoming you in the future.
