Good location

Across the road from the River Liffey, called in here after shopping. Had a Guinness which was lovely but pricey, 7 euros per pint.

Food was locally grown, and tasted great. Beer was great. Live music that was a lot fun - mostly old rock. People there were both tourists and locals having a good time.

Really good quality music and dance which was great fun. Arrive early to get a seat where you can see the stage. Food a bit mixed - great chile but pretty sure it was tinned potatoes with the salad! Not a lot of food choice (ie choice of 2 starters, 5 mains and 2 desserts) especially for vegetarians. Great night... More

Me and my other half scouted round the whole of Temple Bar and stumbled on this gem. The bouncer was lovely as we entered and the front of house lady who greeted us and seated us couldn't have been friendlier. Our drinks order was taken promptly and was brought quickly, i fully recommend the cocktails as they were gorgeous and... More

We were staying at this hotel and the bar was nice for final stop before turning in for the night. They had some entertainment in the bar, which sounded good, however we arrive too late as they were wrapping up. The staff was very friendly and happy to answer all our questions abut the area.

Very busy, but never waited more than two minutes to be served, great staff and atmosphere. During busy periods had staff waiting at the tables, so didn't even have to get up to get a drink.

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
