Walking around Dublin seeing the sights, was a bit hot that day actually and we needed a pint to cool off. Stumbled upon this pub and walked in. Quick friendly service, and I asked the waiter to recommend a refreshing pint. He surprised me with Harp topped with lemonade- DELICIOUS. Looked at the menu, and even though it was kinda... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the music and Irish Dancers at the Arlington Hotel. We were expecting just an average dinner which is usually the case at these shows but the dinner was excellent. The salmon was poached to perfection and the starters and dessert was also great!

We were there on april. We took a couple of Drinks. The service was good, staff was friendly and Bulmer was good :) but unfortunately we ordered Indian curry, that was the worst curry that i have had in restaurant. Everything else looks good (e.g. Sandwithch on neighbourgh table) - but that was terrible.

Meant to stay here till midnight but the music was so good we stayed till 4 am! Mixture of live band and disco and music worked for all but was mainly aimed at the slightly older age group (30/40+). It has a dance floor and music to make you want to get up and dance!

Did not stay in the hotel or eat/drink in the bar, but my family and I went to their Celtic Nights show which is held in the basement below the hotel/bar. We had the best time. We reserved a 6:30 dinner slot as we are often slow eaters and did not want to be eating while watching the show. The... More

We just had a few drinks in this hotel's bar. The drinks were cheeper than in temple bar. Then we did a big mistake. We ordered food. Indian curry and nan-bread. I have never seen so unattractive curry. It was basically some grey vegetables in spiced water. It really did not have any good flavour either. So we did not... More

Great food ... 3 course meal and Irish show to follow... The firsy act was a Trio .. Banjo , Fiddle and Acoustic guitar all of them sang... the traditional Irish tunes ...with a dash of humour and rapport with the audience... the second act was the Irish dancers.. also very good ... all in all can recommend this venue...

Busy but could still hear yourself think Food was very very good, high quality and interesting Cons: One vegetarian choice so a little... More

good tasty well presented food, good size potions. The breakfast bar was well stocked, great service. Lunch and evening menu was varied and reasonable prices for Dublin. If you sit at the front of the hotel you have a good view of the river Liffey.

I took my elderly mother to the celtic nights and dinner, at the arlington hotel, in march. She thoroughly enjoyed it, and remarked how amazing we live in dublin and have never before gone to these shows! Yes, it was touristy, but packed to the rafters. Great atmosphere, and food was nice, for the all in price, really great value!... More
