Nice little spot for a Dublin pint

This is not a bad little place off O'Connell Street to drop into a for a pint. Does a decent selection of kraft beers and also offers a bit of grub- pizzas and toasties. It is more a of a Dublin pub experience than most nearby as evidenced by the number of locals who seemed to be there during my... read more

I was surprised a while back when I walked into this place, I had a meal in Jimmy Chungs around the corner, and had a couple of beers with my meal. The barman said he wouldn't serve me because I was clearly under the influence of alcohol, I tried my best to persuade him I was fine, but he wouldn't... More

Nice little boozer where the staff and clientele always very friendly, only gripe is if ya get a seat near entrance it's very drafty suppose it can't be helped as it's only a step in from the street but generally always like this place

I have visited this pub on numerous occasions over the years and always found it to be a good spot for a few pints, especially the Guinness which I always find very good there. A good place to watch the live sports on tv too and a chat with the bar staff. Worth a visit.

When visiting the Abbey it's good to have a drink in here before or after the play. There's always a nice charm about this place with a good mix of locals and passer by's. The bar staff were welcoming and the pint was good. A good way to finish off your evening.

There are many bars around town that have come and gone over the years, but "The Tide" has outlasted them all. It hasn't changed much, and it's nice to see a real bar left, in the hearth of the capital. It's on the corner of Abbey St and Marlborough St, and has a famous Jameson sign on the wall, that'll...

Went here on a Friday evening for an early drink. Great spot just of O'Connell Street. Good mix of theatre goers and people just chilling with friends. Highly recommend going here for a drink.
