After walking past looking for somewhere to go I was drawn to the friendly atmosphere, live music and general buzz of the place. Standing room only is always a good endorsement. Check it out all fellow travellers

Lot of beers to choose from, but no Kilkenny! Grrrr. It wasn't too crowded, which was nice. Live music was nice. No comedy though...unfortunately. Wines are from a tap.

Stopped for a lunchtime drink after walking the streets of Dublin. It's in a very busy place and we were quite enjoying our much-earned liquid refreshments when the waiter came over to ask if we had finished yet because there were other people waiting. Even...More

Don't know anything about them being a comedy cafe, as we had a very enjoyable lunch at their cafe in the crowded, touristy Temple Bar area. Good food, good drink, good service, great people-watching location.

One of the things my group decided would be fun to do on our trip was to see a comedy show live. We chose this venue out of convenience of location. On the main floor we were confused, it was just a normal bar. So...More
