About Us

last of the authentic
liberties pubs

The arrival of COVID 19 in March 2020 coincided  the partial collaspe of one of our chimneys in a storm,  destoying a large portion of the rear of pubs Bar. Through our resilience, determintion and perseverance we rose from the rubble stronger than ever after 2 years of painstaking struggle. 

The Lark Inn is one of the few authentic family run pubs still operating in the Liberties after all these years. The pub trade has taken a huge hammering in recent years with business’s closing their doors for good. Some new owners have modernised and developed new concepts for the new residents moving into the Liberties area. The Lark Inn is a locals pub filled with great charaters, history, culture and a customer base that prides itself in the Liberties area. We pride ourselves keeping those traditions alive. Welcome to The Lark Inn.
