For dinner we went to Gallagher’s Boxty. I highly recommend you make a reservation. No sense in waiting if you don’t have to. The restaurant was very quaint and very crowded. Great service and lovely ambiance. My husband ordered: Traditional Corned Beef- Thick Cut Slices...More

Lovely restaurant and the main meals of Irish beef stew and pork cooked in 3 different ways (sorry can't remember the name) that we had were delicious. My husband says that it's the best thing he had eaten for a long time.

We read reviews for this place both here at TA and in guidebooks. We thought it was over-hyped. We tried 2 different stews - OK, but nothing memorable. To top it off, when we paid, the waitress did not ask us if we wanted dynamic...More

Another great meal at the Boxty House. I'm addicted to their Coddle as a perfect meal for a cold December evening. Try the Murphy's stout as a change of pace from the usual black stuff in Dublin. Excellent whiskey selection.

Visited with friends for breakfast/brunch. They do a nice mix of breakfast and brunch meals, of different sizes to appease any appetite. The pancakes are pretty good 👍🏼 Portion sizes are generous and the staff were very helpful.
