Great first meal of our trip!

This was my friend and I's first dining experience of our trip to Ireland, and we were not disappointed. The food had a very fair price, perfect portion sizes, and was fresh and delicious! The wait staff was friendly as well. I'd recommend it!

I visited for a mid afternoon lunch, recommended by the bar tender at Frank Nash's pub just across the river liffy, and I chose the goulash in a bread bowl. It was savory, and hot with large chunks of mean and a goulash sauce that was so good I want to go back just for this dish. The dish was... More

I've heard about this place from my golfing buddy. So after a sunday game decided to check it out. When arrived the place was buzzing. We were pretty hungry after 18 holes, so went for a starter and main course. I've had a chicken broth soup with noodles. My buddy had the soup of the day which was recommended by... More

Stumbled on this pub while in the area..thought it was Irish until I entered. This Czech run place has great lunch deals and the waitress was very helpful in suggesting dishes. There also appears to be a huge selection of beers. I had a very tasty chicken and bacon wrap with home cooked fries..very tasty, greaseless and well presented and... More

Amazing gulas!! Best I've ever had in Ireland. The meat was very soft and perfect. Beer was good and they had a good selection. I'd come back.

Cute corner pub. I had a burger and it was very, very good. They have a wide selection of beer and the ambiance is very relaxed.

Our plans were to eat at a well-known restaurant in Dublin. As usual, the place was full to the brim, so we looked for somewhere else to eat. I am so glad that we happened upon Pifko. Every dish our table ordered was absolutely delicious. My daughter and I ordered schnitzel with potato salad, my husband had a roasted pork... More

This is the first place we have come to in Dublin, and I hope the rest of our meals are as good. Had margaritas (will have Guinness soon!) and they were great and the meal was even better. Service was great - helpful and relaxed.
