It's a pub and has booze. What else?

I spent a whole afternoon there just boozing up with my wife. The Guinnes on tap was very fresh, clean bathroom and my kudos go to the bartender, thank you very much for the hospitality, sir!

We got some great nachos and snacks with beers. There was a lot to choose from and the staff was friendly. I wouldn't recommend it for a meal but would go there again for drinks. It's got indoor and outdoor seating but gets crowded in the evenings. The place was completely packed during the 2014 FIFA world cup !

Truth be told though, it was a super sunny day, and we did have a good seated place outside...thank god we got our water served 'on time'....we might have died dehydrated... More

Remember this is a bar to watch football where they also serve bar food: salty and fat, but ok. I am more disappointed that their choice of beer is so limited despite their location in Belgium

Great spot for the matches, but only the main ones! Football takes preference over rugby in most cases, so if you are a fan of the latter expect to be watching the match on mute. Also De Valeras gets very busy so arrive well in advance of any game you would like to have a seat for. Average food at... More
