We were surrounded by Americans and Canadians. The staff were very friendly and helpful. If you're looking to dine with locals, you should probably walk on. Decent pub food. Easy location. Recommended by Rick Steves.

We stayed down the street--this place is always crowded. But, they get folks in and out pretty fast, at least on the restaurant side. Food was delicious. Good menu of traditional local pub food. And there's a Terrible Towel on the wall!

We tried yesterday this restaurant since my parents came to visit me . We ate the best Irish stew and lamb shank in Dublin until now . The service is the top, the waiters are really nice. We will come back for sure 😊

Quite large pub with undersized staff which means that your orders takes time or even are forgotten. After getting drink we left for dinner to other place. Full of local people and good athmosphere.
