I am new to town and a friend recommended the Old Dublin. Our server was great - knowledgable, funny, and attentive. Our food was delicious - the Beef and Guinness stew was amazing! We really enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back again!

Pub Crawling at The Old Dublin Wallingford, Connecticut Whether it’s a trip abroad or a night out with a good friend, I am always mindful that the best memories are the ones that have nothing to do with what I came to see or do in the first place. It has been my utmost pleasure to visit Ireland four times.... More

Good hearty food, sausages and bacon to die for. I keep coming back for a reason. If you like good, uncomplicated food, you'll like this place. Staff are friendly too.

Went there for a lunch, split the salad with grilled chicken with a friend, very good mix of greens. Sat in the outdoor area, nice. the server was nice as well. The bill came to $70! I don't look at prices but the beer we were drinking was $8 a piece apparently. Next time I will order domestic bottles.

Great place to grab a beer and relax. Huge selection of tap beer. Food is not their forte unless you have a good buzz and like deep fryer oil. Live music and great atmosphere. Everyone is really happy. Music should be slightly lower so you can have a conversation with your friends.

Good pub atmosphere, huge portions, good service, except my dinner was cold by the time it arrived at our table- not sure why. I ate some and took the rest home- tasted great heated to an appropriate temperature.

We like to go here all the time. Food and service are great and the beer and irish whiskey selection is the best around. The customers here are for the most part, an older crowd compared to the college bars up the street. This is the kind of place you can leave you wallet on the table, leave, and it... More

We like going to the Old Dublin (and even went there when it was Kenny's). The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The bar and wait staff are always friendly. They offer a large selection of micro-brew beers on tap. They include Rogue, Bluepoint, and Long Trail in addition to Guinness and Bass Ale. For food, they have a nice selection... More

Went here before a Dave Matthews show. Sat on an old ratty couch and drank a great seasonal IPA beer. Felt like I was in my fraternity. Didn't try food but all in my party enjoyed themselves.
