Far and away the best pub in Dun Laoghaire. We had more fun here than in any pub in Dublin. The staff was great and the locals were a blast, we can't wait to get back.

Quirky layout of rooms makes for some interest, loyal clientele seem very comfortable, music nights can be different. Worth a visit.

We will be here for the week and I am certain will visit a few more times this week for a few pints. Dallan the manager was... More

We only had time to stop for a drink but I loved the place. The drinks selection and atmosphere were great. The menu looked lovely too if you are a fan of Thai food. I hope to return to try it out!

Was there for a Socrates Cafe meet Up and as a first timer it took a while for the place to grow on me but it did in the end. I even tried the bar food which was rushed in from nearby Camile Thai Restaurant (that was great food) The style is more shabby chic kind of retro but heavy... More
