...compensates for astonishingly mediocre “Traditional Irish Stew”. Unusually limited range of whiskeys includes 12-year Red Breast, always good. Similarly limited range of beers includes Guinness; so they have everything one actually needs in a corner pub. Just don’t order food.

My wife and I visited here several days on our recent trip to Ireland and it was our favorite spot to end our day and stay until the wee hours. Great Irish Stew and ice cold Guiness. The bar tenders were the best. Will definitely...More

The International shows it’s age, with few updates and a worn interior. Please take down the banners and show that great back bar.

Bartender was busy but still had time to joke with us! Great environment but be prepared for joviality... if you can’t handle jokes, this isn’t your cup of tea. The three of us, all women, felt comfortable and enjoyed our drink in this lively place.

Really authentic Dublin bar. Great Gin Selection and they have random trad / folk sessions going on at all hours. The comedy club is the real gem. Comedy 7 nights a week for €5-€10 depending on the night. Always a great crowd and always a...More

We attended the comedy show upstairs for the first time, and it was brilliant. 4-5 different comedians and a really funny host. Would definitely recommend. It gets crowded, so get there early.
