Popped in for a quick pint after a long walk round Dublin Zoo ended up staying for Sunday Lunch and a few nice pints of Guinness, Fantastic food and friendly staff who made us feel very relaxed could of stayed in there all night. Looking forward too coming back in the future. A great family friendly pub

Called in as a stop of for free Guinness from the City Sightseeing red bus tour, ended up buying a couple of drinks and sat at bar talking to landlord and locals. Very nice traditional pub inside, made to feel very welcome. Didnt eat here but looked like good food well presented from what we saw. Well worth a visit... More

The atmosphere is lovely and the food was good and for a decent price. Also good vegetarian options. Would definitely recommend this place if you are in the area.

Stopped in as we had time before the train (it's across from Heuston station). Friendly service, cozy ambiance. Was recommended by our taxi driver. They have a variety of pub food offerings like burgers, stews, curries, and everyone was satiated. The chowder was a hit and initially came recommended from the patrons next to us.

Very slow service. Food medicore - has beef and Guinness pie. Meat was tough and not a hint of Guinness. Pricey. Pint of Guinness not fresh - they need to clean out the pint pulling system.

One of our top 10 favorite local pubs. Very good food for light eating or full meals. Seafood medley starter is a great light meal and a wonderful 10 oz sirloin for a full dining night. "Standard" drafts but a lovely pint of Guinness and Galway Hooker for an enjoyable micro brew.

This place seemed frequented by locals and tourists alike. We had a meat pie here that was filling and good. Also Guinness and Smithwick on tap. Ambience was wonderful to match the food. Highly recommended.

Thank juneann116
