The Project

Irish pubs are the beating heart of Ireland’s social scene, the soul of Irish culture, where stories and conversations resound within their walls. These pubs are cultural landmarks, and Heineken believes they should be treated as such. To help preserve these historical Irish pubs, we are transforming them into museums. Visit the virtual exhibitions to learn more about the collections that are housed within these great Irish pubs.

Toners Pub

Toners is a traditional Dublin pub on Baggot Street. James Toner bought the current pub in 1912, but it first opened its doors on this site in 1734.
The place is also known for being a literary pub where many writers, starting with James Joyce, spent time drinking and socializing.

A few words with

Mike McMahon

OWNER AT MOTHER MACS

 “Few buildings or businesses maintain the same function over the span of centuries. A visit to a historic public house is a connection back to our own past where generations before, people gathered to talk, drink, eat, sing and play, to flirt and romance, to discuss the great events or the day and set the world to right, to cheer sporting triumph or to drown their sorrows. Irish pubs have been the site for rebellion and betrayal, settings for great literature and places of very real drama. It’s important to protect and preserve our historic pubs so that they can continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.”
