That mixed with a great selection of wines, beers and cocktails means it has something for everyone, including Leffe on draft for me! Food is solid quality pub fare with a nice choice of dishes. The snug inside the door is a great... More

I was a solo traveller staying nearby and wanted somewhere to eat. I walked into this place and was glad I did. There was a large selection of beers and a good menu. I ordered the chowder and Irish stew, which were both very good. No complaints, and I'd go back.

Good food, decent verity of drinks and some very tasty cocktails. Maybe a little bit dark but if you are with a good company you forget it.

Not too many choices for vegetarians. However, there were a few salad options; salads that I have never heard of before. I tried the chick pea and sweet potato salad, which was quite interesting. It was actually a warm salad and it turned out to be quite good. The place is always packed, but then again, it is a sports... More

Excellent for early lunch on a Saturday. Good food, great staff, perfect location. Exactly what we were looking for on our first visit to Dublin in 20 years.

This was in easy walking distance of our hotel and we ate there one evening. Had excellent Shepard's pie and my daughter enjoyed her fish and chips.

Just down the block from our hotel, we found this pub to grab a pint and a bite to eat. Classic pub a balance of locals and tourists. Service was prompt and the food delicilous. We enjoyed the stew made with Guinness -- the mashed potatoes added in made a perfect meal. Oh, and how could we forget the bread.... More
