Peadar Browns was established in 2015 by owners Aidan Brown and Muyu Li. Currently employing a total of 4 staff who are ready to welcome all at Peadar Browns.
The name of the pub was chosen to honour Aidan's father, Peadar Brown, an Irishman born and raised in Tallaght and an enthusiastic GAA player.
The pub is a proud sponsor of Tallaght's GAA team Thomas Davis, as well as minor and senior hurling teams.
The pub often hosts fundraising events to help the local community of The Liberties, the latest event was held last December and raised over €4,000 for Our Lady's Hospice.
"Our final stop on the day was to pop into Peadar Brown’s on Clanbrassil Street, a spot we’d been meaning to visit for a while. Here we meet Aidan Brown, who’s running the pub. Aidan tells us that the pub is named after his father Peadar, who passed away a few years ago. That’s a beautiful way to remember and honour your father. Aidan wears a fleece with ‘Peadar Browns’ written on it, beside a caricature of his fathers face. Usually a new pub would take the name of a famous or historical figure from the area, but they’ve opted for a more personal touch.
Aidan tells us that if we were to be in the pub at night during the weekend, the place would be heaving with people in for a trad session. Aidan’s brother, Colin, sent us a video from a few weekends ago, and the place was indeed in full flying form. Again, we see that a locals pub puts a whole lot of effort into entertaining its punters. It’s not just about sharing a drink, but also about sharing a tune.Peadar’s has also seen a few extra quid come into the pub in the form of visiting tourists. They’re well located as one of the closest pubs to the new Teeling distillery, so they benefit from a bit of trade from that. Aidan also tells us that there’s a lot of Air B’n’B in the area and that people who use that service are stopping by for a drink.
These are pubs that a lot of people might pass by without giving a lot of thought to, but they are very much an integral part of the cities pub infrastructure. A lot of us who live in the city centre do so temporarily and flight around the various excellent pubs the city has to offer. For some, the city centre is a permanent home with a permanent community. These, and other pubs like them, fulfill a vital role in the social life of those communities and their continuation in an ever changing Dublin."
