AN OLD STYLE PUB WITH GREAT FOOD

We arrived just after 12 noon on a Tuesday expecting the place to be quiet but by 12.45 it would have been difficult to get a seat. There seemed to be a large number of locals and that is always a good sign. My smoked salmon open sandwich served on Guinness brown with delightful salads was really... read more

We've visited Finnegans on a few of occasions over the years on our annual trip from England.....we've enjoyed the food & the Guinness & the beer & we love it all! Great place to while away a rainy afternoon in Dalkey with the locals.

We visited Finnegans, of Dalkey just a couple of days ago, and what a warm welcoming pub/restaurant this was. Our food was amazing and the best Irish Coffee I have ever tasted was served to us. Thankyou to all for making our stop so enjoyable in beautiful interesting surroundings. We took the Dart from Dublin, travelled to Bray, on our... More

Visited for lunch. Very tasty well cooked food. Only criticism is that for the price charged the portions are on the small side. Also, prevous customers leftovers were left sitting in front of us for too long

Stopped off while walking in Killiney and were lucky enough to get a table and two chairs outside. Service was prompt and friendly. There was a good atmosphere and it's a great sun trap on a sunny evening. Although beside the road, there wasn't much traffic on a Sunday evening. Inside the pub is very nice too.

While in Ireland recently, found Finnegan's while walking around Dalkey. Great pub and would recommend to all. We were a group from TX and they treated us as if we had been frequenting the pub forever. Went back 2 more times during our 8 day stay at the Fitzpatrick.

Only drank here, but had a nice atmosphere while still having somewhere to sit on a Friday night which is always a boon

Had cottage pie today for 11.50 euro. Very large flat dish that resulted in large quantity of potato and little meat. Would have preferred deeper dish and say a green salad thrown in for the high lunchtime price. Disinterested service to boot. Not impressed.

The best bar in Dalkey for atmosphere and service. Love sitting out front on a sunny day watching the locals navigating the junction in their Range Rovers :o)
