Me and my wife did leave this oldest Dublin pub to the end of day tour, and the visit was the peak of the day for us, very stylish , old fashioned, great service, beer and food (Irish stew), not so full as the Temple bar.

Great place to visit. Does NOT have that "touristy" feel to it. Great food menu in addition to a large drink selection. Outdoor area well shaded - a little oasis. Souvenirs available for purchase as well. Worth including on your list of placed to go.

A must see. Spacious, friendly, traditional atmosphere. We loved it for a drink & photo stop. Wifi available. A little off the main track but worth the walk

A must stop if you want to claim a drink in Ireland's oldest pub. Several different rooms that provide great drink and bar food.

It was amazing dinner! Well worth the price! The cheese cake was to die for! The service was fantastic despite how busy they were! It was a great time!

As the oldest pub in Dublin, it's not too tacky a tourist trap as it could have been made to be. Naturally, the Guiness is good, as is the Pub-food type menu, but don't expect gourmet stuff, just good steady-Eddie well done grub, served by friendly, helpful staff

We were keen to find a traditional Irish pub for dinner and this place was perfect! The food was sensational with a broad variety on the menu. They also had good allergy information on the menu for one in our party who is Coeliac and cannot eat gluten. Go try it!

Unfriendly staff and more expensive than most other places in Dublin. But it is the oldest establishment in Ireland and the food tasted good. I had the beef stew :)
