“Quality Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Fagan's Pub / restaurant which was recommended by the concierge of the Croke Park Hotel concierge (about 15min walk). If the restaurant is good enough for Bill Clinton and Bertie Ahern, it is a good testament of service and quality of food.
Excellent good choice of food and value for money, friendly and welcoming.
On the first nigh we did not book - big mistake, had to wait for an available table. The place was packed, bar staff very busy.

“If you're in Dublin- it's worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We came on a local b&b hostess recommendation and were happy with the service, the selection of food and drink and the ambiance. Lovely pub on Drumcondra - we were all pleased with the vegetable soup which is a don't miss and they did cater nicely to a gluten free diet.

“Fagan's Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Friendly barkeep and cheap drafts. Carvery lunch was bland but cheap and filling. The building and memorabilia and photographs were interesting. We'd go again.

“Great spot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

The food, the drink, the atmosphere, the decor, love everything about this place. The staff were great, very accommodating to us even though we came in late with a very large party. Cannot wait to revisit.
