Local bar, visited on a Friday afternoon. It quickly filled with a mix of locals, office staff and the occasional tourist. A pure pub, well done - quick and efficient service and a great pint. A nice way to start or end an evening with friends.

visited twice - the first and last nights in Dublin. Both times was in the afternoon around 2 or 3. The second visit, one of the regulars remembered me and struck up a conversation. Looks like there may be a few regulars ? I believe they serve food (although I did not order). Saw people with sandwich type food.

We had a lovely evening meal here, good value great tasting food, good prices for a pub in Dublin. Plenty of TVs to watch the sporting events of the day. Staff were friendly and polite. This pub is very close to The Mespil Hotel where we stayed.

Great service in this unusually laid out friendly local bar. All high seating set all round the pub with an island right in the middle, making a quirky area to relax with a pint in.

I ordered a pint of Heineken and it was woefully served in a warm glass. The food is overpriced for what you get. Overall it doesn't seem to offer much considering other bars and restaurants in the area.
