The Brazen Head – Ireland’s Oldest Pub

HOW DID THE BRAZEN HEAD GET ITS NAME?

The building was once used as a brothel and during the Siege of Limerick, a cannon ball was fired; removing the head of a well-known red-haired woman of disrepute.

When the pub was remodeled and restructured in 1794, the tavern was reopened and named in her honour.
