Funny pizza concept: you ask the toppings and they will create a pizza from it. Thin pizza, so not the heavy American style. Besides their own brewed beers also nice stouts on draught like the new Island's Edge. Tried it and I liked it.

We ate at Rising Sons for our evening meal and the pizza situation was fantastic. They allow you to choose your sauce and toppings which makes for many interesting possibilities to go with you beer tasting flight. The staff were friendly ad knowledgeable and guided...us through our choice of the beers on offer. We had a great evening in the industrial-looking surrounds and really appreciated being able to see the fermenting vessels whilst drinking their beer!More

Very disappointed returning to one of my favourite establishments after a few months closure, regulars had been seated in the outside area when we arrived and presumably long before we got there but we were ushered on after an hour and forty five minutes even...though it was not explicitly mentioned in the booking and it was quite unfair to prioritise certain customers. Beer was nice though as was the food and new bar staff were exceptionally attentive.More

We had a table booked for 9:45-11:45 which was stated in the email, at 11.20 the staff kindly asked us to finish our drinks at the heated seating area outside which we had no problem doing however when we got outside the so called manager...Maria (short blonde shaved hair ) was sitting on the table smoking fags would not allow us to seat at the heated table cause they were closing even tho the staff inside asked us to go out there. This women made us sit on the table outside the main door that had a table and 2 chairs , when we asked if we could have another chair as she could clearly see there was 3 of us she said no you can stand so rudely baring in mind it was very cold and also raining so she would not leave us stand inside under the shelter . She could clearly see we were waiting for our taxi after spending nearly 100 euro in the premises. I have never come across such a rude women and she then had the audacity to call the security over.First and last time I will come here!!!More

Having been dismissive of the Rising Sons on an earlier visit we were impressed with how the bar is coping with Covid-19 regulations. We walked in without reservation but the helpful wait staff were able to get us seated pretty quickly with a minimum of...fuss after taking contact details. Their IPA beers still don't grab us but the Gráinú Belgian wheat ale was in good nick and the alloted 1 hour 45 minutes gave us plenty of time to enjoy a few along with the pizzas which are always very good. Given the difficult trading circumstances the staff were in good form and it's just possible that one plus side of the pandemic for the hospitality industry is that everyone has learned to up their game when it comes to giving good service. Recommended.More

delicious food, delicious beer, professional service except one lady behind the bar who ruined my evening. I asked for a lighter, she was very unpleasant. I felt like an intruder. Luckily, one waitress apologized for her behavior, explaining covid rules.

Sat outside with a few friends on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Staff were great and on the ball with everything. The pizzas, nachos and pints were lovely too!
