Tommy Smith of Grogan’s
It was in 1972 that Grogan’s became a favoured meeting place for cutting-edge Irish writers of the time such as Patrick Kavanagh, Flann O’Brien, J.P. Donleavy and Liam O’Flaherty, thus cementing Grogan’s popularity amongst the city’s artistic avant-garde. Opposite its front doors lie the impressive Powerscourt Townhouse Centre and from its back door you are a few steps away from the Victorian George’s Street Arcade.
