As far as I know, it's not a historical bar at all. It's just one of the many tourist Irish pubs in Barcelona, settled up to look kind of old - but it's fake old unless they have preserved some decoration of a previous shop or café. I haven't been there, so I can't tell.
If there was anything historical, I assume it'd be in their website though. But as you'll see they only talk about sports and food: website
George Payne must be someone related to the Irish history, but I'm afraid I'm a specialist in my land and I don't know much about other European countries.
Maybe:
