.... John Mulligans is probably the best Boo-Hoozer in the world . Much copied much bandied about in conversation . I have been going there on and off since the late '60s and even though I don't partake of the ' falling down water ' anymore I still pop in when I am in Dublin for a White Lemonade and... More

I was with five others when we called in here - every last one of them attested that this was the best Guinness they'd ever tasted. The wine was Dublin standard, that is, small bottles. Normal Dublin prices. This is a proper pub - not a wine bar, not a gastropub. It's got plenty of locals drinking in it, it... More

This is a pub which you expect to see in Dublin. Old School with oodles of charm. Friendly traditional bar man and an excellent pint!

A typical Irish pub, not particularly stylish or remarkable. Go there because James Joyce used to drink there and enjoy the history.

Mulligans is easily one of the best pubs in the city of Dublin. Any change I get to have a drink in Mulligans I jump at. The atmosphere is always fantastic, the staff are always friendly and chatty. The pints of Guinness are one of the finest in Dublin. One of the best places to go on a wet day... More

Having had a superb lunch in the Vintage Kitchen next door, (which I have reviewed) the staff there suggested we took our unfinished glasses of wine next door to Mulligans, as our table was needed. This was a great idea as this is one of the most famous and oldest pubs in a Dublin. The pub was busy with a... More
