History of Harry’s

As Dublin As It Gets…

Steeped in history, Oil Can Harry’s has been as much an attraction as it has been a busy traditional Irish pub serving only the finest food and drink in the heart of Dublin’s fair city for over 100 years.

Originally purchased by Edward (Ned) Hynes in 1913 for the princely sum of 2,000 pounds and it remained in the Hynes/Behan family for generations up until the early 1970’s. The list of regular customers over the last 100 years is as long as it is distinguished, including Generals, Statesmen, Writers, Poets and the odd Rock Star all mixing freely with local faces.



Today is Oil Can Harry’s serves a full food menu for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner along with a huge range of traditional brews, craft beers, Irish whiskeys and an extensive wine list. Owned and Managed by Tim and Wendy O’Connor the tradition of the last century continues with a warm welcome to all who pass through the doors of the famous Oil Can Harry’s on 32 Lower Mount Street.

Why not become a tiny part of our history and pop by for your favourite tipple or even dine with us for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner any day of the week. We look forward to giving you the same welcome that has been offered here for over 100 years.
