This is my local pub, I didn't know the older Gallagher's. There's only 3 pubs in Dublin, this is easily the best. It's a little bit tricky to find, but it's in the Big Lots shopping center in the alley down past Round Table pizza.
Monday: Free pool (2 tables)
Wednesday: Acoustic guitar (presently alternatives between 2 guys)
Friday: Sometimes a live band
Yes, there are creepy people ultimately in any bar you go to, but this feels very safe, and everyone looks out for each other, including people who've not been there before. There's always someone to talk to, including the bartenders.
Most nights it doesn't get busy until after 9.30pm, so pick your time appropriately.
