Description: Situated overlooking Central Bank Square in the heart of Dublin city centre, The Foggy Dew offers a charming blend of old world tradition fused with an appealing contemporary atmosphere.This historical bar is the perfect spot for a quiet afternoon pint or alternatively a great meeting place before heading out on the town.The major strength of the Foggy Dew is that it provides all the best qualities of a local bar coupled with a great city centre location. The cosy size means that you will never lose your friends although if you need to escape for whatever reason there are plenty of corners for you to hide behind!Whether dropping by for a friendly drink, settling in to watch the match or just enjoying the great music from the Foggy Dew DJ or a live band on a Sunday evening, we are sure you will find a warm welcome with great service in a comfortable setting.

“Great atmosphere and good pints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

Very nice pub, a must visit even if its for a few pints.
Service is good, patrons are friendly, beer flows nicely.
The live music is pretty good as well, good place for some nice rock and roll

“busy, central and loud”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

not the place to go for a quiet conversation.
very busy, difficult to get seating, music far too loud, have access to sports games on the big screen but impossible to heart them

I couldn't get the barman's attention to get another round of drinks so we ended up leaving and going somewhere else as we were waiting too long
