McDaids Pub, Dublin - 385
A painting of McDaids Pub, Harry Street, just off Grafton Street, Dublin. A down to earth bar that serves good Guinness and has no loud music and is one of the pubs on the literary trail having been a local for many Irish writers over the years. The complementary cool blues in this painting cause the glowing yellow and orange lights to jump out and become a focus of attention.
McDaids was the favourite drinking spot of Irish literary legend Brendan Behan. Before it was a pub the building in which McDaids resides was the local morgue for Dublin City and was then later turned into a church before finally becoming a pub. J.P. Donleavy, the Irish American whose novel “The Ginger Man” was banned in both America and Ireland on grounds of obscenity, was a regular at McDaids. James Joyce’s short story “Grace” opens in McDaids.
