Our taxi driver recommended this little place to us because we wanted to visit an authentic pub that was no so touristy. We arrived early...around 4 o'clock in the afternoon. We grabbed a seat at the bar. There were traditional Irish musicians playing music. Within about an hour the place was packed! We stayed for several hours. If you are... More

Go early to get a good seat, but it would be worth it! A truly authentic Irish pub with great craic, music and drink. This is not a tourist attraction as it were, but a place where the locals go - hence, better. The girl and guy at the front desk of the hostel we were staying recommended it and... More

We went here to hear traditional Irish music, however we couldn't! The bar was so packed that when we found a seat in the back (around the end of the bar), we couldn't hear the musicians at the front of the bar. It seemed a nice place, but I recommend getting there early if you'd like a good seat. We... More

Went for the trad session, such a great atmosphere and the staff were great. Drinks are way cheaper than the temple bar let me tell ya! Perfect spot for a real session.

We thought there would be a band but it was a group of musicians that seemed to get together to play music. Like a jam session. However, it was so crowded and many loud conversations going on. It was difficult to hear the singing. We heard the instrumental tunes just fine. Plus, there were long breaks in between songs. There... More

Irish music everynight. Beer prices are not the worst but not the cheapest. A guinness and a coors light is 9.60 euro. The staff was very friendly.

The fact that this place is NOT in Temple Bar is refreshing as it has the right pub atmosphere and traditional music. It is a short walk off the Smithfield LUAS stop. We came here for just a few pints and the music and it is perfect for just that. Definitely make the trip over there.

This is a lovely little pub. A mix of locals and tourists. With a friendly atmosphere, good quality pint of guinness, a choice of craft beers, efficeint barman and some lively trad music. Sure what more could you ask for.
