One of the oldest pubs I have seen during my stay in Dublin. The staff was really nice, the atmosphere was cozy and the beer was good - as always. :-) I liked that there were tables to sit outside in a smoking area. Heating was provided, so it wasn't even cold. People say that it's the Pub where 'The...

I was here in a group of 16 on Friday night. 7 of which were drinking Guinness including myself none of us could finish our second pints they were that bad.

Great reputation for music and VIP callers,friendly staff,Guinness not great 5/10,but the toilets are disgusting,totally unacceptable in this age. I noticed that the three men ahead of me in the smelly loo didn't bother to wash their hands,no soap and a very slow hand drier.

Came in here after the rugby game. Pub was jam packed but some how squeezed myself into a snug corner at the bar. Watching the bar staff work was great. They were all in a good mood, having the banter, polite and the most efficient bar staff I've ever met. Even with a packed pub they made it run smoothly....

I stayed here for 3 nights while in Dublin. I wanted something other than a traditional hotel and this was perfect. My room was very spacious and comfortable and the staff was friendly. It's a short walk from public transit, bus tours, and city centre.

We recently vacationed here with my husband and this was a nice bar very close to Grafton St. It was a nice break for lunch and a beer after shopping. Staff was great, reasonably priced and a good meal.

Stopped in for late lunch. Had the stew and it was delicious. There was a Irish band playing. Lots of people, lots of pints and a ton of fun. Loved it! If you want the feel of a real Irish pub give this five be a try.

“There's a small fridge in the lower cupboard of the armoire-- it's perfect for stowing fresh fruit, scones, jam, salads, etc., from a Tesco or the Spar store across the street--- Coffee & tea are provided in the room so this additional perk makes for economical breakfasts on the run or late evening snacks after a busy, busy day. ”
