The building that houses McDaids can be traced back to the late 18th century and it is reputed because many literary greats have frequented here over the years: Brendan Behan, Paddy Kavanagh, Brian O'Nolan, Austin Clarke, Anthony Cronin, J.P. Donleavy, and Liam O'Flaherty are just a handful of the famous writers that have graced the floors, quenched their thirsts, and sought their inspiration in McDaids over the years and some of their portraits adorn the walls now.
