We may have waited 10/15 mins but didn't feel like that as we watched the different food being served and soaked in the atmosphere and listened... More

Packed full of Saturday night revellers which was great fun, fast drink service considering how busy it was. Different music in different parts of the bar.

Went here after visiting a few other pubs in the area, the staff here was so friendly compared to some of the other spots, our bartender even took the time to write down some of the must see spots when we told him we were touring the entire island.

Would very much recommend a trip to the quays. We went at about 11pm on a Friday night and it was a lot of fun. The live musician was really good and really got the crowd involved singing along!

We went twice in 2 weeks here. As many others, it is one of those old & traditional pubs in Dublin. The facet is as impressive as the quality f the food and services. They offer live music (as many pubs in Dublin) and each is unique in history and decor. The selection of local beers is huge, and the... More
