The Olde Punchbowl became our haunt while in Dublin. Down the road from our hotel, and across from the Booterstown DART Station, we gave it a try and loved it, and kept coming back. One rainy morning they let us in before their opening. On...our last night in Dublin the owner gave us a ride to our hotel. Live music Tuesdays & Saturdays, incredible back bar. Try the Guinness Beef Pie, Fish&Chips, daily soup. Food & Drink is only surpassed by the fine staff!More

Wife and myself went in for dinner. Chicken wings, steak sandwich and beef and Guinness pie, all amazing. Only downside is price of drink, €5.95 for a Guinness, bit overpriced!!!!

Fabulous dinner. I had the cabbage and ham, outstanding. The atmosphere was wonderful and the wait staff was superb. We arrived as part of a tour group of approximately 30-40 people. The turn around time between placing and recieving our order was absolutely amazing. Six...or seven times faster than what it would have been in the U.S.More

Wonderful dinner I tried Black pudding and cabbage with hams. The staff was amazing. We were told how it’s haunted and is 200 years old. It was neat to learn the history

You should try the ribs as a change from the traditional fish and chips :-) They make some unusual cocktails for those wishing to be a tad more adventurous.

We were members of a large tour group that was processed to have dinner, dessert and drinks in this establishment. The owners and staff are attentive, personable while serving the best beer or wine. We had so much and the food was delish. Enjoy

This place was so good that we ate here two days in a row. The staff were very friendly, the food was very good & the desserts were some of the best we've ever had. Highly recommend eating there if you're in or near Dublin....I plan on returning to Ireland & when I do, I'm making sure I eat here again.More
