ASHTABULA — The scaffolding is down from the facade of Dublin Down.
The traditional Irish pub and eatery opened two years ago at the site of the former Kork & Kettle. Since that time, owner Dave Clint has added a large outdoor space.
Throughout the past week or two, Clint has been working on $2,000 worth of improvements on the outside of the building at 4618 Main Ave.
“I’m trying to clean up the facade from the street,” he said. “I put in new windows upstairs, new lighting and Irish symbols.”
Dublin Down is open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday.
An “Irish Welcome” sign greets customers to this pub featuring table seating and a bar. Clint said he enjoys sharing the pub’s signature dishes and offering a variety of beers.
“For an Irish pub, we have the best darn pizza,” he said.
The menu features Irish and American cuisine, as well as Guinness beer.
Eight appetizers — from fried zucchini to bruschetta bread — and five grinders, including roast beef, buffalo chicken and corned beef also are available.
Wraps, burgers, wings and a slew of sandwiches also are available.
In addition to food, Dublin Down features live Saturday entertainment, a choice of three draft beers and two TVs in the pub. Cavalier, Indians and Browns fans pack the place on game days/nights, as well.
On St. Patrick’s Day, Clint hosts a big party. This past St. Patrick’s Day, cars were parked all the way down Main Avenue in both directions.
