Fantastic bar, really good atmosphere with the live music being played. Guinness was not that different a price to anywhere else, ended up going back later at night when it was much busier but still a good friendly vibe. Lots of tourists as to be expected of which i was one but it did not feel like a tourist attraction... More

For me it's not the best one and surely one of the most expensive ones. It's the most known one of the area

Live music day and night, great atmosphere, lovely décor and great smoking area where you can still hear the live music. Although we never ate here, the food that was passing our table looked lovely. Well worth a visit to this pub.

Worth a visit for good craic and the namesake Decent service and drinks Busy over St Patricks weekend/day so best time to visit is whilst the parade has started to watch it on TV and avoid late afternoon due to underage teens outside getting drunk

Great bar, great service, great music, great atmosphere: have I said it's great enough times? Yes the drinks are expensive but so are most of the bars in this area but weigh this against the fact that there is live music every afternoon and night and you are in a fabulous part of this wonderful city. This is a bar... More

I went here with some work friends as were told they had live music. I found it to be a great place, but very expensive for drinks. 19 Euro for 3 drinks (beer). Put the pricing aside as they cater mainly for the tourist, it really is a great bar. The do serve food, mainly sandwiches , but the sandwich... More

A lot of the bars feel fake but this one feel genuine, the massive range of whiskeys and the music are great. Decent service and a place to sit. Only disappointment was on a day time visit n sign of the famous oysters.
