This is a great pub and thankfully the food is very good too. The seafood chowder was particularly good and hearty, indeed a meal in itself, but everything we ordered was well cooked and reasonably priced. Pub grub rather than high end dining but well worth a visit if you're in Malahide.

I had lunch in Duffy's on Saturday. There was a large group, so lots of different meals. We were seated quickly, orders taken quickly and food served quickly. Everything was good, fish, chicken, Roasts. Staff were very friendly and happy to help. Well worth the money.

My husband and I dined here for our wedding anniversary meal. We both ordered steaks which were cooked exactly to our liking. Waitress was very friendly and attentive, prices reasonable, The rugby was on so it was very busy but we were still served promptly. Returned later in the evening to hear the live band 'Something Else' who were excellent,... More

We stopped in Duffy's, for a late lunch, after visiting Malahide Castle. We were greeted warmly, and sat ourselves at the bar. It's a beautiful pub, spotlessly clean and nicely appointed. The barkeep, immediately welcomed us and took drink orders. I opted for a pint of Guinness, and my wife had a coke. They have a good selection of food,... More

Went once and never went back. I'm afraid it was not a positive experience and with the other options in Malahide, I just give it a miss.

We all enjoyed a pint of Guinness and a plate of fish and chips. The waitress was charming and we thought the fish and chips was excellent.

We popped in here by chance on our first night in Ireland and had a great time. Duffy's is very popular so it can get crowded, especially if there is a game on. Service was great and draft selection was substantial. We didn't eat so I can't comment on the food. Nice friendly place to hang out.

We sat in the bar area this time instead of the lounge and it wasn't nice at all. The regulars at the bar felt it was appropriate to pass comment really loudly on another couple who came in after us. The couple got up and left after a few minutes and I don't blame them. We left as soon as... More

We are upset to learn that two of our customers were treated so disrespectfully by other customers. If we had known that this was taking place, we would have immediately dealt with the offending customers. As you can understand, we cannot always be responsible for customers’ behaviour. We would very much appreciate it, if you could contact us to discuss... More
