Quirky

Found this pub really unusual... Initially we thought it was a bit of a dump, when in fact it turned out a lovely quirky pub! Everything is retro from wallpaper to lampshades. Bar staff very friendly. Definitely worth popping in for a pint :)

I popped in with pals before Christmas for a midweek pint, There was a great buzz and festive atmosphere. We sampled a few of there craft beers and ended up playing who wants to be a million are with a bunch of students. It brought back pleasant memories of life before work and mortgage.

This is a great pub with a great mix of people and live music every night-best pub in Dunlaoire. I always found the people there very friendly-never ate here but can get takeaway from place across the Road

Have been a few times. Whenever I come home to visit, it is my go to bar. Great selection of beers, good value and service, fun atmosphere and the interior looks very cool. Lots of interesting entertainment in the evenings too. I wish this pub was in Prague where I live now. Would always be there!

Really the only pub I bother with in Dun Laoghaire. It is shabby chic with old sofas and chairs, an open fire in winter, lots of odd pictures and weird lampshades with old wallpaper...not original in its decor but comfy and relaxed. You can get great food delivered from Camille Thai across the road. They are really helpful organising parties... More

Definitely one of my favourite bars in Dun Laoghaire. Really nice atmosphere, interesting decor, and a great range of beers and whiskeys. Reasonably priced as well.

I ended up at this pub on my last evening in Dublin based on a recommendation from my Airbnb host. It has a very unique, creative and at once both private and communal atmosphere. They have an excellent beer selection that follows both the traditional and wide range of smaller batch beers. Service was excellent as well. I was there... More

Lovely pub with a lot of character and atmosphere. They have comfy sofas downstairs and also some board games that can be used free of charge. One of my favourite places around Dun Laoghaire.
