I've eaten here solo, with small groups and larger groups. The food is very good and a good value. The upstairs room is cozy and comfortable. I could have used less volume on the radio/muzak.

Ryan's is a fantastic pub.. The Guinness is amazing & the bar food is fresh & tasty. I've not eaten upstairs at FX Buckley here but have at their other restaurants, where the quality of steak was amazing. This is a local Dublin gem that any tourist would love...

We had the opportunity to eat here for dinner and found the food and drink to be above average. The customer service was excellent and the Irish hospitality was warm and attentive.

Visit this bar/restaurant if you are ever close to Heuston railway station. The bar offers great pub grub at very reasonable prices. Try the snack selection for two for 18 euro. You get a choice of 4 items which are delivered on a purpose built wooden platter. Looks great and is great. Guinness is really good also.

We booked for a family meal in the restaurant. We did advise we had two babies in the group but they had set the table for 10 adults. We arrived about 10 minutes early and they weren't impressed but let us sit down. Overall the food was fine, service could have been better, maybe a bit friendlier! Prices okay as... More

I live quite close but was curious when I first saw the name because I only ever buy my meat from F.X.Buckley butchers in town and I love them. I had a look in but it was early morning while I was going to Phoenix Park for a walk. I couldn't stop thinking about this place and imagining how tasty... More
