I have eaten here quite a few times and I have yet to be disappointed. They have recently updated the decor in the upstairs restaurant and it is fabulous. It still has all the charm and is reminiscent of an old fashioned 1930 train carriage. It is beautiful. The food is always stunning, early bird menu is full of choice... More

Stayed at the Ashling hotel down the road which was full of American tourists. Needed to go somewhere more Quiet for a drink and some good food with some work colleagues. Went to Ryan's which was busy but space was found for our party of 6. After a few beers the most tasty steak I have had in a long... More

Ryans bar is a very friendly traditional bar a short distance from the Ashling Hotel where we were staying. We had bar food which was very good and a good range of beers.

We chose this restaurant for our last evening meal in Ireland! Exceptional all the way. Service was very good. Food was FANTASTIC! The best beef I ate in all of Ireland. They actually age it right on the premises and they certainly have chef's that know how to cook it to perfection. Could not believe I had such a great... More

Food was average at best, nothing special but service was very good. Quaint restaurant and bar. It's located across the river Lifty from the Guiness storehouse.

The first night I was in Dublin I had dinner here. The food was very good. I had chicken and mushy peas. Since I hadn`t been in Europe before, I didn`t know that service was slow everywhere. I was upset that first night but after 18 days in Europe, I came to realize that`s just how it is there.

I greatly recommend the Ryans / FX Buckley Steakhouse, their spicy tomato soup is to die for, if I hadn't already ordered the T-Bone (which was also great) I would have ordered a couple more bowls! Both my husband and son really enjoyed their meals too.

Great atmosphere maybe due to the fact that the Irish football game had just finished though Dublin lost against Donegal. Were told originally it would be a 90 min wait only to find a table was available within 15 minutes so we were pleased. Wine list was expensive.

My wife and I chose FXB due it it's proximity to our hotel The Ashling. It was our first night in Dublin so we wanted something close. TA scored again. Quaint pub below and nice restaurant above. We had the beef and Guinness pie with mashers. Fantastic. Tender beef, flavorful gravy and flaky pastry. Perfect compliment to a pint of... More

Best steak and Guinness pie that we've ever had. And a very warm and welcoming ambience as well. Would definitely return.
