Kehoe's has been around since 1803 so it's got to be good. This pub is a busy spot and we had to squeeze our way through the entrance and up the stairs where there was some room at one of the bars. Kehoe's is a Victorian style pub with stained glass windows and a lot of memorabilia on the walls... More

Great little pub off of Grafton Street. Great service and we met some nice people. Apparently everyone goes there for a Guinness - tourists and locals alike!

And the Heineken is rather good too. Very busy on a Friday night, and slightly less so on a Saturday afternoon, this place has the reputation of being one of the best bars in Dublin.

There are quite a few great pubs in Dublin and this is one of them. Efficient service, but they no better than to rush your Guinness. Good selection and a friendly atmosphere. The pub is largely as it was when it underwent a Victorian restoration in the late 1800s. It is old, and homey, and whether you are a tourist... More

Popped in here for a bit of Dublin culture on a weekend trip to Dublin. Location is excellent, service was good (the gentleman working was neatly dressed with a friendly character although not a dub himself), prices on the expensive side and the Guinness was great. All in all a good pub and would recommend for one or two of... More

Couldn't have picked a better place for our first pint of Guinness in Dublin. It is what Kehoe's does best. That, and atmosphere. If you're looking for food, cocktails and fine wines, you need to walk on by. But if you want to experience Ireland in 20sq ft - here it is. We loved it for what it is.

When in Dublin, go to pubs like Kehoe's! Not much else to say. We went a few times with our Dublin pals and each time the place was more fun. Standing outside, sitting by the bar or chatting in a snug, Kehoe's was the perfect place to "experience" the pub scene in Dublin. We had many a pint of perfectly... More

Kehoe's is the classic pub experience. Smallish and crowded, but that is expected, it is a spot to raise a pint and experience a relaxed Dublin day or evening. If you don't like crowds, don't complain, go somewhere else. Someone will quickly take your spot. Enjoyable.

This is an old fashioned pub that retains many features and rambles around over two floors. If you like your pubs crammed to the rafters with people enjoying life this is the place for you, definitely not a spot for a quiet pint.
