Excellent first meal in Ireland!

We had just arrived in Ireland this morning and made our way to Malahide and found Duffy's- what a nice surprise! Beautiful pub, great service and delicious food for a reasonable price!

If you are looking for an Irish pub with great atmosphere go to Duffy's. Ray, Barry and all the staff are so friendly, they make you feel really really welcome. There are live bands on at the weekends, good pub food and great offers like €10 for steak and a beer. This is the best pub in Malahide and its... More

Not your usual pub grub, duffys menu is above average. €5 Friday is brilliant and they do a steak and chips for €10. Exceptional value. Lovely clean pub with beautiful decor and staff are always professional and on the ball!

We went only for a drink. We already had reservation for diner at an other place. So I can only comment on what I saw on food passing by and others enjoying it. That all looked good. So next time I will report on the food. Drinks and service was fine.

We were not disappointed, nice choice of drinks, food was traditional Irish, Steaks, Fish dishes etc all very good, the pepper sauce served with the steak is excellent. The staff and customers in duffys that Saturday were all very helpful and friendly. If... More

Visited Duffy's on a busy Saturday night with my family as a group of 7, staff were very friendly and went out of their way to arrange a big enough table for us even though it was really busy. The food was really good quality, with the usual choices you would expect to find on a pub menu. We certainly... More

Saturday 11th January my husband and myself were in Duffys for an afternoon drink. When visiting the ladies I was horrified when the female member of the waiting staff came into the ladies, SIGNED THE WORK SHEET and just walked out. She checked nothing. Just continued waiting on the tables. When a pub serves food Hygiene should be a priority.... More
