On our last night in Dublin, the wife and I walked 4 blocks from our Hotel and decided to try Foleys. The pints were cold, the service and food was very good. We were both cold so we tried the goat cheese and broccoli soup and we both had the steak sandwich. We left full and happy. The is a... More

I went to this bar and it was one of the worst experiences I have ever had in Dublin. Food was awful and waiters really ill-mannered. Besides, customers are only drunk people trying to spoil your evening. I really wonder how the bouncers make the selection of people at the door. This is my fair and impartial opinion, so please...

We were on vacation/holiday in October 2016 from Minneapolis, Minnesota USA. We had a late dinner around 8:30PM. My son and I had the burger and chips along with a beer. The food was very good and of high quality. The service was relatively quick. It took about 15 minutes to get our food. The restaurant was equipped with large... More

Dosent look much from the outside but this little bar is full of character. The food is delicious and the chef Guilia was very friendly and takes pride in her work. The other bar staff were very nice and attentive especially Amanda who kept out beers full and smiles on our faces. Great place for lunch and 10 beers

Visited this establishment with friends recently and just did not seem to get it, also some of us found the drinks we got were not as good as they should be.

Food was very very poor. Almost embarrassing for guests at this party held. A nice area and nice furnishings but food was dreadful and over priced.

Hi Alison C, As we had been dealing with your issue privately it disappoints me to read your review. As we discussed it was misunderstanding in relation to how the menu worked and I believe we came to a compromise on the issue. There was no issue with the quality of food on the night and the majority of your... More

A true jewel amongst Dublin's pubs! The interior is totally un-pub-y, with upholstered armchairs, in all shapes and colors, from pearly white to fancy purple! The staff were very friendly and attentive - and funny! And the drinks were really good. Too bad I'd already had dinner before - would have loved to taste the Foley's food, but my friends... More

Another random pic in Dublin. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Excellent food and plenty! We notice groups of people at multiple tables. So, definitely good place to socialize. I tasted! my first Hop House 13 larger here. I highly recommend this place.
