We stopped here for a quick lunch and a beer. We sat at the bar looking out at the street - great people watching. The food was good and decently-priced.

We went for lunch. There was a nice Irish singer and a lot of people but we found a table and a couple of Guinness' came right away. I wanted fish & chips but they don't have it. We got oysters instead. They were very good and fresh came with several sauces.

Defiantly worth a visit to say you e been. The live music creates a good atmosphere but the prices are extortionate and the drinks go up every hour

This is our second time going here. It was much more crowded because it was the evening. We were able to find a seat at the end of the bar in the back. We ordered our drinks and then some sandwiches. They have over 100 to choose from! It will take you some time to choose but all of us... More

My entire trip to Dublin was centered around this pub. It lived up to it's great reputation in every way. I never ate here so that is one thing I cannot comment on but the atmosphere was incredible. However I did see lots of food and if I hadn't just eaten I would have loved to get food, it looked... More

Went last night about 11:00. Took in the music and people. Almost everyone except us were in their 30's. Music was fine and the atmosphere was great A definite must if you come to Ireland

This pub has character, delicious food and excellent wait staff. The live music is an added bonus! Even if it looks too busy, walk in and look at the back. There is a beer garden with plenty of seating. The nachos are yummy as well!

Had a great time here for our last day in Ireland. Great local music is always playing. Atmosphere is great and everyone inside sings along with the music which is a lot of fun. Drinks are a little bit more expensive in here than other bars but that was to be expected with how busy they always are.
