Quite pleased!

My husband and I stumbled upon this place because we were literally too tired to go anywhere else! After a long and crazy day of touring, we hadn't the energy to go much farther.

It was Friday night, most places had stopped serving food and me and my pals stumbled across this place on the corner. What a lucky find! We had some great food, staff were very good, even apologised for the cider being too warm. Had such a good night we were almost least to leave. Just great, highly recommended

We had excellent service here from the moment we arrived, with a very warm welcome from Sean (hope I've spelt that right!). I'm a bit of a fussy eater and wanted to swap things around on the menu having a jus served with one meal in place of the sauce mine came with. This was done with no fuss at... More

Right in the heart of Dublin, especially if you are on the way to the Book of Kells. Like so many places in Ireland, the service is warm and friendly, from the moment you walk in the door. I thought the lunch prices were a bit expensive, but we had two of the specials: beef and Guiness stew and fish... More

We didn't have alcohol with our meal but they have a full bar with a large variety of beers available and there also seemed to be a bring your... More

We met up as a family group of 11 and were not disappointed with either the food or service. The staff were great and assisted us with family photos. All the food was great but the Afternoon Tea stood out as a real treat.

It's been a while since the last time so I was hoping for better. I wasn't disappointed. Gallahers is back to being the restaurant I visited the first time... Excellent. The... More
