The Gravediggers is one of the greatest pubs in the world. The place got it's name from the gravediggers who often attended the pub after a long day of hard work. This because The Gravediggers is located right next to the Glasnevin Cemetery. Everyone loves that place and I can totally understand it. It has a special atmosphere, it's like you walk right into the past. The decoration of the pub was not changed since the time of the first owner in the 19th century.
Order a pint of their great Guinness and enjoy the hospitality and good conversations with the locals that make every traveler feel at home.
