“Most wonderful restaurant in Dublin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We -my husband and I just spent the last week in Dublin Ireland where we had the most pleasurable experience at The Hairy Lemon Restaurant OMG it was fantastic, the food was out
Of this world fantastic not to mention the great service we got from Simon,Darrin, and Melissa .

The atmosphere was truly Irish , great service , and they all made you feel so welcome from start of dinner to the time you walked out the beautiful stained glass door.

If you plan on going to Ireland The Hairy Lemon is a must at least for one nite you won't be sorry, and the bread and butter pudding with custard sauce is to die for , the presentation is like a five star restaurant for all of their food so put this on your list of restaurants you MUST go to while in Dublin Ireland !!!
Thank you Hairy Lemon for a fantastic time -Pam & Georg

“Good night out and a great pint of Guiness!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Nice friendly bar that served an excellent pint (or 10!) of Guiness. Was used as a based for 8 of us who were over from England to watch the Rugby on Sunday. Arrived on Friday and visited the bar everyday until our flight home on Monday afternoon. Thanks. We WILL be back

“Do not eat here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Went to The Hairy Lemon with a college and two business associations for a pint and a meal. Ordered a steak medium done on recommendation of the waiter. My meal came 25 - 30 minutes later than the rest of the company on a semi-cold plate. The steak was more than well-done (Dark Greyish inside) and the chips was soft and mashy. No compensation given. Do not spend your hard earned money here there are lots of good places just arround the corner.
