I admire a business with staying power despite every adversity it faces. Murrays Bar is a charming example. It was founded on Sackville Street, now O’Connell Street, in 1908. This location has been the epicenter of violent clashes during the Dublin Lockout in 1913, the Easter Rising in 1916 and the Irish Civil War in 1922. Yet the family has continued to operate their Irish pub with good food, great hospitality, lively music and a smile.
