At the strong recommendation of our hotel's concierge we went to The Hairy Lemon on Easter Sunday! We were warmly greeted and promptly seated. There's alot to look at around each room with lots of sports memorabilia (Irish and US). There are 3 dining spaces and a spacious bar. Regrettably we were not there the night they had music (poor choice on our part). The owner/manager tended to us and made suggestions and wonderful conversations. We had the burger, beef stew and bangers and mash. We left nothing on the plate. Of course we had Guiness as well and the pours were excellent. There were tourists and locals alike and the vibe was amazing. I wish we had found it at the beginning of our trip as we would've been regulars. The service, ambiance, food and beer were all amazing - a highlight of our quick trip to Dublin!

We came here to grab dinner as recommended by a local. We have to wait for a long queue before we got our seats. Order cake fast and it was average as what we expected. The traditional Irish music band playing at the bar area added a nice blend of ambience in the restaurant. Servers and waiters are friendly and efficient. The supervisor is attentive.

A young man working in our hotel recommended The Hairy Lemon. He said it was his pub on evenings off work. The four of us were most pleasantly surprised to find a reasonably varied menu, not the usual restricted pub menu. The atmosphere was very pleasant, even at times convivial. Some of the decor reminded one of sports bars in the United States. We were happy to find our favorite NFL and MLS teams represented by banners on the wall. We returned twice during the one week in Dublin. Will be there again when next in Dublin!
