This place is in the Temple bar area. Its a great authentic spot for drinks, conversations and fun. The folks are warm, welcoming and friendly. The place has louder music and the crowd can get pretty rowdy :)

Good menu with a good selection of traditional Irish dishes which is reasonably priced. Very busy and very touristy but good for families.

We made a reservation for 9 persons at 21:00. They were surprised we showed up on time and they made us wait in front of the restaurant in the cold weather. At the time of writing we're still waiting, nearly half a hour... What a disgrace!
