The place is huge - a total pub atmosphere but the food is quality although a bit high priced. I had the fish and chips - huge piece of fried fish with fries and coleslaw - it was delish - beer selection very good - a cool place to just hang out!

There is always something going on at Ballydoyle. A major live music place, there is always something good coming from here. The variance of Wings is Great - and a tower of Irish beer to wash it down is never a bad thing.

This is a wonderful place to enjoy great food, entertainment and atmosphere. The last time we ate on the patio right by the river. Our waitress was attentive, the food terrific, an all around terrific time. Absolutely a place to go!

I've been to this restaurant at least a dozen times, sometimes for family events. The food is generally very tasty, especially the deep-fried corn beef balls. Pricing is about right and the beer selection is decent. While the atmosphere is perfect, the service can be hit or miss, and it isn't based upon how busy the restaurant is. Things have... More

At our most recent trip to Ballydoyles our party of two tried the meatloaf as well as fish and chips. The meatloaf was simply okay, nothing too fantastic, but the mashed potatoes and green beans included were both tasty and delicious. The fish and chips though were very good, very tasty and had no foul fishy flavor. The fish is... More

Every time I eat there I usually get the Box Lunch, which is one larger piece of cod, instead of the many smaller pieces you get with the fish and chips. The fish is alway tender and served hot, and just out of the fryer! I have had the fried pickles which are very good, and the Ruben sandwich I... More

Having been in Dublin 18 months ago, I wish I had found this place first and I could have saved a$1000.00 airfare. Ballydoyles is loud, raucous and friendly. The food I found to be quite authentic and we were completely satisfied with our entrees. It's a great place to take your group after work. It has the feel of a... More
