Tour guide suggested this place. It's a self service joint with large portions with a lot of options. Had Sheppard pie that was decent as were the steamed carrots. The Guinness was served properly and the interior was attractive.

Very very nice atmosphere with Irish songs and dance very often. Good to watch rugby games as well. Food is just great with a wide range of Irish foods. Meals are very consistent. You definitely need to go there !

It got good reviews on Trip Advisor and was very busy so we thought we would give it a try. I really wish we hadn't. First, you have to be prepared to get up and get your food. That would have been fine if the food was good but it was terrible. My husband had a vegetable soup which was... More

It is a nice place to have a beer but not for lunch. The food is ok with a medium price (15 euros for a baby ribs) but the meat was overcooked. I do not recommend the place for lunch or a "light" dinner (everything is too fat).

One of best places we found for good home made food!! There was a massive selection and it was absolutely delicious. We were both completely stuffed for the rest of the evening and the price was one of the best we found as well! Definitely recommend going here!!

Nothing fancy a bit like a school cafeteria but in a pub. Food is really good, a car art style set up with most of the meals served from there. The corned beef, turkey and ham are all delicious.

Came here for beer and food. The Irish Guinness stew was amazing. My fish and chips were cold as I suspected they would be after I made the order. I noticed on previous orders that the staff would leave food on counter for a while before sending to tables. Not very good. The staff I also found to be very... More

We were in Dublin with our kids of 12 and 13 years old and this was a great place to eat and enjoy the Irish atmosphere in a town where all the pubs are not allowed for -18 after a certain hour. We had great food and great irish beers.

Thank 70Mira
