Most Famous Pubs in Edinburgh

By Jesse Wallace Subscribe to RSS | May 22nd 2012 | Views:

If you’re planning a trip to vibrant Edinburgh, you’ll definitely want to spend time in some of the city’s famous pubs. Whether you’re looking for a quiet spot to sip a pint, somewhere to hear local music, or a livelier place to mingle, you’ll find it in Edinburgh. This historic city is one of the best to visit in all of Europe, with its castle-like architecture, windy cobblestone streets and some of the friendliest people around. Whether you’re staying in Old Town or New Town, you’ll find a whole host of famous pubs with a traditional Scottish feel.

Take a stroll down to the Grassmarket and you’ll find hundred-year-old pubs, like the cozy White Hart Inn. Scottish poet Robert Burns is rumored to have spent time there during his last visit to Edinburgh in the 18th century. Just a stone's throw from there is Biddy Mulligans, an Irish bar known for its live music and tasty pub food. If you’re feeling adventurous, you might want to continue your pub crawl up the hill to Finnegan’s Wake, another Irish bar with live music every night.

The Cowgate, just a short walk from the Grassmarket, is another place to find famous pubs. Stop by the Three Sisters to watch a football game and have a bit of lunch. Or, head up the hill to Greyfriars Bobby’s Bar, named after a dog who, in the mid-1800s, spent years visiting his dead owner’s grave nearby.

Add Edinburgh’s smallest pub, The Halfway House, to your must-see list. This tiny pub, located just off the Royal Mile, plays host to regulars from all over the world. Ensign Ewart, the city’s highest pub, is a short distance away on the Royal Mile. You might also want to stop by Deacon Brodie’s Tavern, named after the legendary William Brodie, a Deacon Councilor of the city in the 18th century. If you’re in New Town, you’ll find many pubs located on or nearby Rose Street. Don’t miss Hogshead, a downstairs pub with great food and a cozy vibe.

With the range of Edinburgh hotels available, you’re sure to find somewhere nice to stay during your visit to the historic city. Make sure to make time for some of the city’s best attractions, like the Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and the Sir Walter Scott monument. And if the rainy Edinburgh weather kicks up, dip into one of the city’s famous pubs for a pint or two.
