The first registered drinking establishment on this site dated back to 1911. The Lark Inn came into being in the 1970’s when the Larkin Brothers took over the pub licence . The pub was leased from the Larkin brothers in 2011 by John Byrne. In 2019 purchased the lease outright . The Lark Inn is a traditional inner city Dublin pub with a family-friendly athmosphere.
