Staff very friendly. I had the snack basket which was €8 and included ribs, chicken wings, cocktail sausages, chicken goujons, spicy wedges and celery sticks. Worth the money as it is probably the cheapest meal I had in dublin and was stuffed. Drinks of an average price. The decor is quite unusual and it is a nice little pub for... More

Nothing outstanding, decor is very dark and gothic. This is connected to the paramount hotel. Guinness was cheaper at the storehouse than here.

This is an average pub, that is worth checking out if you are passing. It seemed friendly enough, but there was nothing I could really get to excited about. We were drinking in the afternoon, so maybe it comes to life in the evening.

I like the turks head. I wouldn't spend all night here but it's an interesting venue. The bar is circular and that gives for an unusal lay out. The smoking area is large enough with seated benches and stools. The staff are friendly. There is plenty of large screens to watch sports.

We had a drink in here over the weekend as we had dinner across the road. It was very chilly when we got in as they had all the doors open. The door nearest us was closed and then it wasn't so cold. However it was so dark inside even though it was bright and sunny outside. We just had... More

The Turk's head hosts a language exchange every Thursday evening, which you can join for a price of 5 € (you do get free snacks for that) ...It's a good way to meet new people and make friends, if you're new to the city. The pub itself is nothing exceptional and there are other better pubs in Dublin.
