Relaxing pub in suburban neighborhood, lots of screens to view the World Cup. As the evening wears on, the atmosphere gets livelier.

Visitied this pup with my elderly parents. It was my father's local 60 years before and he enjoyed revisiting at the grand age of 85. The staff were wonderful, especially Bernie, who treated Dad like returning royalty and made his night.

The public bar is a lively spot. Good atmosphere. Good service. Good value for pints of stout! Handy enough if going to sports in Croke Park.

We ate here because it was close to our Dublin hotel and I really liked the name. Inside was a classic Dublin pub with locals quietly drinking or chatting so we seated ourselves and decided what to have. I liked the look of the lasagne bolognese and hubby got onion rings and fish and chips. All of the dishes were... More

We received excellent welcomes in the Skylon, the Cheese Pantry and every pub except The Cat & Cage. It's gone downhill fast since we were last there

Had curry here, was very nice and staff friendly. A nice place to drink and naturally the Guinness is great. Also try the red ale on tap.

The night we visited the Cat&Cage we experienced a friendly and familiar atmosphere. A birthday party was organized, so you could find mothers, father, grannies and children all around... nice experience.
