Ely promised a great time with its terrific location alongside the waterfront and fantastic view of the board gais theater. We were greeted pretty quickly and given a great seat outside! However we received no menus for a strong ten minutes and a member of our group actually took it on himself to walk to the waiters station to grab... More

Just had an evening at Ely CHQ watching the sun go down, enjoying a few drinks and some bar nibbles. Very friendly staff, lovely cocktails and the Black stuff and good simple bar nibbles. Staying at Jury's Inn Custom House in Dublin. Very very close by .

A very different experiment to be in a futuristisk area and be seated in 200 years old basements. The food was very good, much better than when we stayed at K-club

This was a revelation after a long day at the office. The wine bar is in the main financial centre of Dublin and close to Connolly Station. It is worth diverting to. An award winning wine bar and if you come in you will see why. Popular with the office workers in the area who pour in after work and... More

We were seated in the basement and it's fabulously atmospheric with the stone vaulted ceiling. I had the soup to start accompanied by the superb Guinness brown bread, which I couldn't get enough of it! This was followed by the... More
