Had lunch here, basic pub fayre. If you like beer it is a brewery so some interesting choices of their own branded beers.

Nothing special, just a pub really. It's clean, the staff a friendly enough. Food and beer are OK, bit overpriced but it is in the tourist area. Nothing special, just OK.

3 floor pub, with nice deco but above all, outrageously long beer offering. Over 200 beers from around the world (USA, Belgium, Asia...) will definitely satisfy all profiles. Great place !

Great pub with several floors. Nice ambience and friendly staff. The food is good and diverse. Major attractions the drinks list. Lots of beer options from several countries and of course, the Porterhouse beers. Live music but starting a bit late. Not too expensive

Nachos consisted of hard unsalted chips with a disgusting cheese sauce, despite the menu saying they were made with real cheddar. In my view unacceptable. Service was good and drinks were nice.

Lovely atmosphere, although it’s so busy. We’ve spent around an hour here just before our way to the restaurant. We had drinks and chicken wings and everything was lovely. We will definitely come back.

Tonight we were in the pub of this really egocentric management. They really choose who they want to serve and who not... Maybe it’s time to place some adults in the management-chair! It’s really a place to avoid in Dublinn !!More

I agree with Ann - the place is very big on several floors. But it's also quite crowded. So I would suggest you booking in advance.
