Good all round night out

The food here is much improved since our last visit. I had the ham hock followed by beef in guiness and both were fab. The atmosphere of communal dining is lovely but on this particularly night, the evening before Paddys Day, the city was bubbling with excitement, the music was slow and dull... read more

We stopped in for a beer and conversation and got exactly what we needed. The folks were friendly and the service good. Our lunch was well prepared and the on going dining service was fine. A good place near the ticket purchase of the city tour bus and a great place to get the feel for a bustling city with... More

Overheard live music (from The Quarter Mile band) from the window of my hostel on Wed. night (Sky Backpackers /Litton Lane) and had to go check it out! Had a Guiness and had to dance! ~ Even though this is a more up-scale place than I like to visit, the bar still felt very cozy and the entertainment was excellent!

The atmosphere of communal dining is lovely but on this particularly night, the evening before Paddys Day, the city was bubbling with excitement, the music was slow and dull, not matching the occasion

We visited for a drink and a bite to eat and were greeted by a welcoming atmosphere and live Irish music. The staff were helpful and the service was good. Variety of food on the menu and good selection of drinks. Would recommend a visit.

Have come in here many times over the years, it has always been a pub that is synonymous with tourism in Dublin, and was always quite a famous place for it's Riverdance style dance show. It was always a really popular place for my friends to meet up too, because you always ended up talking to god knows who, and... More

We were staying at the hotel so we ventured in to the bar to see what was going on. The show was great and the bar food excellent. After the show the is a disco in the small hours. Friendly & efficient bar staff.
