We didn't know what to expect when we came to this pub. It's an ordinary one that you can find like it all over Ireland. Only when the foot came and we tasted it we knew we've got a bargain. Large dishes the sirloin stack...More

Exactly what you want a traditional Irish pub to be. Stopped by early for a drink, a lot of charm to the place, old, dark, but well kept. Pleasant staff, drinks as expected. Perfect for a relaxing pint, and I'm sure for any kind of...More

We ate here as part of our Trafalgar tour. We were given a fixed tasting menu, and nothing on the tasting menu knocked my socks off (and most people in my group agreed). I will say that the food that was coming out of the...More

Dublin has no shortage of pubs , but Nancy Hands is definitely worth a visit. Although on the Hop on Hop off , it is a classic Pub with good pub food.

Dublin Airport us approx 15 to 20 minutes away by Taxi but this of course is highly dependent on the time of day. At rush hour it is a lottery but by evening time it's much easier to get about Dublin.
