I arrived about 3pm on a Sunday and was seated and served within minutes! I ordered the Chicken Cesar Salad and the portion was massive and very tasty! My only complaint was the price of a pint of Heineken which was e6.10, this seems very pricey to me but perhaps this is the norm for Dublin!

Although a bit dark inside this place gives a proper Irish pub feel (because it is a proper Irish pub). The food is great honest pub food. I had bangers and mash, my sausages were about 8inches long. The service was flawless. The only negative I would mention is that it's a bit on the expensive side but not more... More

We loved the food, drink, and live music so much at the restaurant we actually went twice. The stew, cottage pie, fish and chips, and brown bread and ice cream were all delightful. The traditional music they offered was fantastic, just what we were hoping to find in Dublin!

This is a pub and it is what it is to me - a pub in Temple Square with really good food. I recommend anyone traveling in Dublin and visiting this tourist area to go on in. Had the bangers and mash and loved the bangers, not a big potato person but it was enjoyable. My Guiness was perfect.

We went here for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. On entering we went upstairs to a lively restaurant with lots of Irish charm. The food was fantastic and the portions were large. Good value and service too.

From the outside, it seems like any other restaurant in Temple Bar but as you go upstairs, it's this fantastic, lively Irish restaurant with the most friendly staff you could ever meet - truly speeling the Irish charm! Extensive menu - friend had the seafood chowder and I had the Dublin Coddle, both of us loving the meal. I usually... More

Stumbled on it while walking through Temple Bar around lunch time. The placard outside the restaurant showing their lunch deals intrigued DH ! After you go up the stairs, you enter a beautifully decorated pub...dark woods, memorabilia, etc, in other words---very comfortable. We were seated next to the stage, and since no one was performing then, we recharged our ipad... More

Ate dinner here one night. The coddle was excellent and the staff was very friendly and attentive. I would recommend eating here if you're in the temple bar area
