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

We went up to Malahide as part of a day trip to Dublin. The city is so big and busy so we wanted to go somewhere with easy access to the airport. Malahide is a lovely fishing town. We went to Duffys to find a lovely spacious pub.. we decided to have a bar snack and on the specials was... 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

Visited here for lunch recently with a friend. I was very impressed with the entire experience. The place was filled with locals in for lunch which is always a good sign. Excellent midweek deal on fish and chips. Fish came out nicely soft and very tasty. Atmosphere was great and the staff were friendly and attentive. Will certainly be back... More

We popped into this pub one lunchtime for a quick bite and found a really fabulous place behind the normal front door. Very modern with lots of dark woods and different areas to choose from. We had a really tasty lunch, very high quality and reasonably priced. The staff are very pleasant too.

went to this bar on Friday night and the first thing that hits you is the TVs with plenty of sports etc, there was also a few locals there who were having a singsong and i have to say they were very good. We would go back and well worth a visit.

In Summer the roof top terrace is great for soaking up any sun that we might get and in Winter Duffy's has some cosy fires to keep you warm. The drinks aren't cheap (they aren't cheap anywhere in Malahide) but I don't mind paying a little more for somewhere cosy with a nice atmosphere.

Regulars here for a few years. Staff great, atmosphere also. Good mix of tourists and locals. Only thing I'd say is the menu has changed for the worse very recently. Enough to make us eat elsewhere. Pity as the old menu was better. New menu is very overpriced and lacks some of the favourites it used to have. We aren't... More
