My husband and I are here from the states and just happened to wonder in. The food was out of this world and Elliot and Micheal were extremely knowledgeable about the whiskey! If you visit the whiskey bar downstairs I recommend this two Scottish gentlemen!

Needed a place to eat late lunch, early supper after long flight from USA. Food was great and portions very good for hungry Americans! Servers answered a zillion questions we had as first time travelers to Ireland.

I was blocked at the entrance, the security guy at the entrance didnt allow me and my friends to get in inspite of the club being almost empty. We didnt even drank anything previously. I do not recommend this bar/pub.

This was our favorite pub in Dublin. We stopped one early afternoon with a plan just to have a pint or two. We ended up staying until dinner time, then returned after dinner for the remainder of the evening. The bartender was so personable, we...More
