We stopped here around lunchtime on a Saturday, so when we first walked in, we could only find seats at the bar. We then realized that the bar itself is actually pretty big, and winds around past the first entrance/bar. There were a few stag and hen parties (or whatever else they are called), but they were pretty tame. The... More

Very cosy pub, we visited on a wet January afternoon. Fire in the corner and a nice atmosphere. Food looked and smelled good but we didn't eat.

we popped in here when wandering around - was nice to come for a bit of history, but based on the pricing I'm guessing it's only for tourists these days. nice to experience a piece of history and had a nice vibe, but was certainly one of the more expensive places.

The exterior decoration attracted me to this bar restaurant. I enjoyed the entire customer journey, from ordering food, drinks and soaking in the buzz. Lovely customer service. I would return if living local..

Great to see the oldest pubs in ireland, bit of history but too much over priced, more a tourist trip then a experience. We didn't stay too long, was nice but prices were ridiculous.

We stopped off in here for a couple of pints of the black stuff as this is stated as the oldest pub in Dublin. Great atmospher and we had a cosy wee table next to the fire. Should be on everyone's pubs to visit list for Dublin.
