“Fun, Music, Good Food and Great Staff - a Winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Spent 2 afternoon's here last week - delicious, reasonably priced food (try the massive serving of mussels in wine sauce or Shepard's pie) and lively music! Very friendly and helpful wait staff also.

“Fun in Dublin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

On our last night in Dublin, my wife and I wanted to spend the evening in the Temple Bar are. After reading a few reviews we decided on The Old Storehouse. Needless to say we were not disappointed. For starters, the live music was outstanding, the atmosphere was fun, the Cottage Pie and Guinness Stew was the best I had on our 2 week vacation. The place stayed packed with a steady stream of patrons in and out the entire time we were there. As busy as they were, the service was stellar. The entire staff was as friendly and eager to get you wanted you wanted as quickly as possible.

Well Done Ya'll, hope to visit again

Very caring staff who tended to my family very well, the food was brilliant and at a very reasonable price. It gave us a great overall experience and we'd be more than happy to return in the future.

“Great Pub Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

My wife and I were in Dublin for four days and wanted to hang-out at a Pub for good food. The food and atmosphere were exactly what we were looking for. Fun, energetic, with better food than we anticipated.

We went classic and had Bangers and Mash and Cottage Pie and both were excellent. The live music was a nice touch and it seems to go one throughout the evening.

The restaurant clearly caters to tourist and on the surface that can seem off-putting; it really isn't and the whole experience works. I'm assuming you can find a non-tourist pub but why...your a tourist and should just embrace and go with the flow.

I highly recommend a quick bite to eat at the Old Storehouse.
