Although the food seemed popular I just nipped in for a few scoops away from the bustle of Temple Bar. Beer was good and at €5.90 a pint a bargain (honestly). Pleasant place to sit and watch O'Connell street rush by

Had a couple of drinks here recently after many years. It hadn’t changed much and still looked the same, which is a good thing as it is decorated nicely. The bar staff were very nice and chatted while we ordered drinks. The prices were reflective...More

This isn’t a place for a quiet meal and some pints- it’s right in the heart of it all and has good food and service. The inside is really cool to see. The views of the city are fun.

This was originally a bank and many original features are visible. Friendly staff, can't comment about the food, a couple of craft beers.

Lovely bar, busy, but you don't seem scrunched in. It's large and there are further rooms downstairs. The service is excellent and swift and the food was delicious. Well worth a visit.

Been to Grand Central on numerous occasions but this was first time spent most of the evening here. Bar serves great pints and even better cocktails and you can while away the entire day as the world passes by on O'Connell Street just outside. Staff...More
