Great spot, really good food,one of the best meals I had in Ireland. We were headed to another spot in Temple Bar, but we were unable to get in. I saw this place and we gave a shot. I had Lamb Stew in a couple of other restaurants but this was the best.

After a full Sunday of sightseeing in Dublin, we made an impromptu decision to try to have dinner at The Boxty House. I'd read that the food was very good, so I wasn't sure that they'd be able to accommodate us without a reservation. When we arrived the place was hopping, with people standing both inside and out waiting to... More

We actually stumbled ( for real) upon the place after a stop at the Whiskey Bar and were delighted we did. Clearly a popular place as a line formed shortly after we arrived (lucky timing for us). The food and service were wonderful. And a Boxty (don't want to ruin the surprise with a description if you haven't had one... More

Located in the Heart of Downtown Dublin (Temple Bar area) this was a great place to dine and people watch. The staff really made this such a great experience. Jules and Mike waited on us and were helpful with recommendations and fun - taking our American Humor in stride. They were both helpful in directing us where to visit after... More

I got something that was tasteless and didn't complain at all. When I didn't eat it, the staff asked if it was okay. I said I didn't like it. Then I got the passive aggressive treatment. Why bother to ask if that's the attitude? Would I return? What do YOU think?

Exceptional experience at the Boxty House! Made an online reservation for 6:30 with a short note that it would be my wife's birthday. Due to travel delays, we didn't turn up until 8:00. The gracious hostess held our table for 90 minutes past our reservation! And our waiter Giorgio treated us to sparkling cider and bailey's cheese cake, complete with... More
