The 5 Lamps

Monto Red Ale

Forget the damn squares and the pig alleys of this world. It was here in Dublin where Europe’s largest red light shone. Affectionately known as the Monto, and a stone’s throw from O’Connell St, it was home to brothels, bowsies and late night drinking to beat the band. It welcomed gentry, future kings, and any fella with a few bob to burn. It was named for the street it centred around, Montgomery St. And we are named for it.

So take her up and enjoy her as much as the historic red light district that inspired song, story and us.
