It's a very nice shop beside Trinity college that sells a great collection of Cuban cigars, pipes, pipe tobacco, Irish and Scotch whisky and a few other things worth looking at. I've bought quite a few cigars and whisky off them over the years and it's always been quality. It's always a very busy place but the staff have always... More

I couldn't resist the temptation to go in and look around. The inside is gorgeous. Everything was really nicely presented. However, they were busy and it hard to find a salesperson.

We came into the store thinking we could get some information on the whiskeys and cigars but instead the staff staid behind the counter and did nothing. There was no hello or can I help you? It was pretty chaotic.

Walked in and bought a few things. Friendly, knowledgable staff. Very busy and high traffic. They close with the rest of the area at 6 pm.

Staff should be more customer friendly. Good range of products. I got a cigar sampler that was on their website, they applied the website bundle price which was slightly cheaper than buying them individually, but lads, please put a bit more effort into interacting with your customers.

Friendly staff. Greeted upon entering and told if we needed help let them know. They were knowledgeable about the products as we don't know much and was looking to purchase gifts. Prices were reasonable.

I went to James Fox to purchase the gift for my friend. I wanted to buy a bottle of whiskey for around 40-50 euros. I was well served, Kate - the sales assistant was very helpful. She helped me to choose pretty good whiskey, even I could taste it. I also asked her, if the shop can post this gift... More

Upon purchasing a gift the cashier did not even greet me, tell me how much the item was, or even say thank you. I have never met a more rude cashier. In fact from reading other reviews it is evident that this shop is renowned for poor customer service. Do not visit this shop if you want to feel valued... More
