Irish restaurant

A bit of an unusual entrance through the pub to an upstairs room but very intimate and comfortable. Lamb shepherds pie and chicken both well cooked and very good. Good wine choice. We were in time for early bird menu which was excellent value for money.

Fantastic restaurant, service was so good you didn't even notice it. The food was top notch. The early bird is great value and when u have the pub below make sure you have a sneaky pint there after your meal.. Don't look any further

Excellent food. Connor provided great recommendations and service. We even went back on our last night in Dublin. A nice, family-friendly restaurant above a pub in a neighborhood. We recommend reservations as it is very popular.

This was just what we were looking for during our stay in Dublin. Tasty Irish Pub fare ( Homemade soda bread, Shepards pie, Burgers and Steaks ) executed well and served with a smile.
