Just got back from a long weekend in dublin, after coming across this pub on our first day, we literally spent most of out break in here! Such a good atmosphere with the live music, particularly with jake hallam playing Saturday afternoon. Was busy most of the time but too overcrowded and unbearable. Loved it!

We have been in this restaurant during Easter Holidays. Actually this was not our first option but unfortunately the one we were looking for was full. The Quays is a good looking restaurant in the center of the famous Temple Bar. And this is exactly its problem: it is a typical tourist place. The quality of the food is just... More

Booked this restaurant for our last night in Dublin and had a great meal. Everyone enjoyed their food, there were 10 of us, the restaurant is small and extremely busy. Our table wasn't ready when we got there 10 minutes early but was ready in a matter of minutes. There wasn't a table free all the time we were there.... More

Brilliant in every way - a great pint of Guinness, with great dishes and friendly helpful staff who give 110% customer focus. A couple lovely evenings spent here and they also have a bar downstairs which has live bands - a great atmosphere and excellent place for a pint or two.

We stopped in randomly to this restaurant and we had some amazing food!! Cottage pie, and stew. Great service. Only complaint was that the building was incredibly hot, but we were there when it was abnormally warm for the area. Sunshine and 60s!

Visited this restaurant on our last evening in Dublin and we were not disappointed. I had the steak sandwich which was just perfection, however I did struggle to finish my meal due to the size of the portions (not a bad thing). My partner had the double burger which he thoroughly enjoyed. Great chips, great service would visit again on... More

Couldn't stop returning to Quays Restaurant, it was our favourite place to go for lunch, the food was so good and the friendly waiting staff made it all the more enjoyable. The lunch menu offered a wide range of meals, I had the panini and soup combo which did have ham in it but after explaining to the waitress I... More

The statrers were wonderful, the salmon was very tasty... More
