We stopped here for some beers after a day of touristing. This is a very loud and lively place that is very crowded. Even though it was very crowded the service was quite prompt and friendly. We did not have any food.

This is one of my favourite bars and has been for years. Really good atmosphere - not really noisy so you can have a good chat with friends. Lots of cosy little snooks. If in ranelagh worth popping in for a pint.

Excellent Irish Pub with good food and fine atmosphere. Loads of fun when in Ranelagh. A good place to spend some time on a wet Dublin day.
