About The Black Lion

This bastion of Dublin pub culture has been around since the distant coach house of the days of 1734. In those days the Black Lion, a medieval coaching inn name, served as a very important link for travellers and merchants en route to and from the city of Dublin.

The hinterland of Inchicore and Kilmainham was then densely wooded, harbouring numerous highwaymen and villains who frequently subjected the occupants of coaching travel to violent attacks and robbery. The highways were also in a perilous state which made travelling conditions hazardous. The Black Lion was then a popular overnight stop where travellers relaxed before cosy Coach House fires, savouring wholesome food, wines and potent home brewed ales.
