This is the same as Witherspoons in England, therefore it is very reasonably priced compared to most bars in Dublin. Food very good, nice and spacious room,staff friendly, will use again on my next visit.

The view is the reason to go, the food and drink are the usual weatherspoons fare: cheap and tasteless.

The most average and bland experience we have ever had in Ireland. Ireland has great independent pubs and restaurants. Go to any of them instead of this place. Average lack lustre service (not that they do much) Orders messed up which happens but .....the food! How they have the temerity to use the word "gourmet" for their burgers is beyond... More

This is a big restaurant/bar compared to other Irish venues. It was busy and clean. The bartender was friendly and helpful with beer choices.

We ate here a few times during a regatta in Dun Laoghaire. The food was reliably good. You must find a seat, remember your table number and order at the bar. The first time we went, we waited ages for someone to come to the table to take our order! The chickpea curry was great!

Good inexpensive food with nice views overlooking the harbor. Try to snag a table on the balcony. Specialty nights for different foods. You order at the bar, give them the table number and they bring your food. Good budget eating.

We went to this restaurant yesterday afternoon. We were told by the waitress to find our own table even though I did request assistance as my daughter had been in hospital. The food was very poor frozen scampi. Food was cold and very disappointing.

We visited Dun Laoghaire to attend a play at the Pavilion Theatre. This pub is next door and is part of the Weatherspoons chain. I like a pint of lager and my partner drinks vodka and tonic. Usually this costs nearly €12, but in the Forty Foot it came to €8.90! It's nearly worth taking the Dart over to partake!... More

Located by the seaside in Dun Laoghaire, the 40 foot offers a wonderful premises overlooking the harbour. The balcony are is great for late summers nights and the bar has a fantastic range of beers, wines, ales, ciders as it is part of the Wetherspoon's group. There are deals on food every night of the week which can be combined... More
