Bar crawl

Ventured here on a bar crawl for my trip to Dublin. The venue was huge, there were special deals on cocktails and the barmaid was absolutely lovely. Didn't try the food so honestly can't comment. Im scoring highly mainly because of the prices and service. Would have got 5/5 if there was some... read more

Went there on a sunny day for a lunch in the terrace and the staff is really friendly but the food took a while to be served and, when it arrived, it was cold. We ordered stakes and the quality of the food was mediocre, the meet wasn't really good, the mushroom sauce really disappointing and the best were the... More

We ordered two steaks with mushrooms, onion rings, sauteed onions, salad and fries. The quality of the meat was very average at best (ordered medium rare, got it well done) and what stood out from the sides were the fries, which says something about the rest. So, if you're hungry and close by, you can fill your stomach, but that's... More

Lovely people, great beer, and a nice and affordable buffet lunch of meat, potatoes, and veg. Sports on the TV and a Pearl Jam soundtrack.

She had just finished college and took time to give us hints and tips on what to do during the weekend. Regarding the price, I'd fish and chips and... More

This is a nice Irish bar with decent food and cheap drinks, the staff is friendly and the atmosphere was relaxing. The live music on the Saturday night was refreshing but stopped to early or just after midnight. Would go again if in the area.

Located next to a lovely canal walk the food in here for a veggie is while not groundbreaking is a cut above the normal Pub fare I get thrown at me, I also love the hybrid of seating areas and the staff are friendly without been to best friendish. Prices are competitive and the background music is the best I've... More

I was there to watch football live on TV . I ate a delicious house burger and drank a good beer. Nice atmosphere, maybe not many people, but a good place indeed.
