We don't have those here in the US. Our Girl was obsessed with visiting all the pub snugs she could find. (The proximity to alcohol, she claims, is just a coincidence).
SNUG #1: THE PALACE BAR
Probably our favorite. Very private and the smallest of all the snugs, so it truly was snug.
SNUG #2: TONER'S
A classic snug. Had a lot of light and cute knicknacks, which was nice. Poet William Butler Yeats used to drink here.

SNUG #3: KEHOE'S
This was probably the largest snug we visited. Could probably seat 10 people.
SNUG #4: THE HAIRY LEMON
Note: I did not see a lemon, hairy or otherwise. This place was less traditionally pub-y and more like a sportsbar. The snug had a huge bay window, which really cut down on the privacy factor, but it was a nice snug.
SNUG #5: DOHENY & NESBITT
This place has four snugs. So your chances of getting one are quadrupled, which is nice. They aren't the most private of snugs, and it was pretty large, but we liked it.
SNUG #6: RYAN'S PARKGATETwo lovely snugs. Ryan's has a lovely skylight, so I'm sure it's nice and sunny when the weather isn't inclement. This one was medium sized and quite private.
So that was our tour of Dublin snugs! They were really fun to seek out, very cozy (snug!) once inside and it made the pub crawl special. #SnugCrawl2011
