Very expensive but worth a visit when in Dublin, aimed at tourists and priced accordingly to trap them

This place is unashamedly aimed at the tourist trade. Is it expensive? Yes. Is it faux fiddly diddly? Yes. However it fulfils a purpose, it is like a condensed version of a traditional Irish pub. Come, spend some money and have a good time.

This is possibly the most expensive bar in Ireland. It's like Scandinavia without the hygeine. At 10.20pm on a Saturday night recently (yes, I have the receipt) I paid €6.95 for a pint of Carlsberg. (Carlsberg, by the way, is brewed in Ireland, under license from Denmark, so no excuses for such opportunistic pricing. In fact, a pint of Paulaner... More

The music is so amazing brings everyone together and make a wonderful experience for people to mix with the İrish. The food is also great but the İrish coffee and the choice of ale and whiskey with the amazing music that really mad my stay in Dublin special.

People say that is quite commercial but I really love it. Has great atmosphere, music is good, beer is good and if you are a smoker is the only bar I've found with a terrace where you can sit and drink while smoking a cigarette.
