Great food, good Guinness and a great time! Tapas style food - not a TON to choose from, but very good.
What more can I say that hasn't already been said about classic Irish Pub? Authentic? Yes! Touristy? No! Friendly? Yes! And they know how to pour a perfect pint of Guinness. How do I know this? I'm not Irish but we just finished our tour and tasting at the Guinness Storehouse where we learned how to pour the Perfect Pint.... More
One of the greatest bar that I have ever eaten in, friendly staff and tasty food, even they are doing simple food but it is really tasty. I had a bowl of tomato soup and can always remember the flavour. Will definitely go back again. Plus in the bar its the best pint of guinness in dublin.

It was a highlight of our trip. Gravediggers has a restaurant side and a pub side. The pub is from 1833 and sits next to the oldest cemetery in Ireland... More
What a fantastic pub! The friendly staff and warm atmosphere made us wish we were staying for lunch, instead we had some wonderful pints of Guinness. We will be back for food as it looks so innovative and home cooked. A great location close to the cemetery, a lovely respite.x
We visited John Kavanagh "The Gravediggers" on a cold damp Tuesday night during a short break in Dublin. It is a great old pub, dating back to 1833 and largely unaltered. The service is warm and welcoming, the tapas style food (we started with the dips, followed by the slow-cooked pork stew, croquettes, and stuffed red peppers) is scrumptious, and... More
