This is a nice restaurant in the Temple Bar district. Note that the entrance to the restaurant is located on the side of the pub. The food was good and arrived quickly. The portions are quite large, including the desserts.

Their pub food is too die for good. Had the garlic stuffed mushrooms, chicken wings, fish and chips, Guinness stew, vegetable soup and the steak sandwich. All items were a 10 out of 10. Piping hot, savory....everything you want on an Ireland trip! Thanks again!!

Despite the fact that we made a reservátion two dsys before, we have had to wait more than 30 minutes to be seated, and the staff was very unkind during all the dinner

We did not have reservations, but we were seated right away. I’m not sure if The Quay takes reservations.

Yes, you'll love it. Not too expensive, and right in the middle of all the Temple Bar nightlife. It will be great fun. Just eat here and then go out to all the Bars with music and fun
