Have been here a few time now. The Guinness is really good. The menu has something to cater for everyone. Prices are good and the food is very nice.

DO NOT go to this bar if you value your safety. My partner and i went and our drink was spiked with Methamphetamine and Benzodiazepine while drinking there. We have been told by venue owners and past patrons who are friends and even police that it is extremely common at this venue.

Good food live music and easy on the wallet drinks. What more you do you need for good time. Great location easy to find and very close to the central city.

Food was great (reasonably priced as well), atmosphere great, barstaff were miserable and not that happy to interact. Irish folk are always happy to chat - not so authentic. Music was good, security were friendly.

Pretty good atmosphere like in most Irish pubs. Live music quite often. Cheap steaks on Sundays and Mondays!

Steak could be bounced off the wall Guinness pie was worse thing I have ever seen sent it back and got refund. Kilkenny sauce was a mix of mayo BBQ and tomato sauce whizzed up tasted terrible. Do not come here to eat as all that's edible is maybe a chip. New chef needed.

Had lunch here a few times, meals were all good pub meals and decent prices. The live music was great. Downfalls was slow bar service and the place does smell very sour and stale. Maybe new carpet wouldn't go astray.

This was a happening place with great atmosphere and cheap eats. If that is what you are looking for this place has it. Unfortunately the night we went they did run out of Guinness which seems strange for an Irish Pub so that wasn't great, but otherwise the cheap eats where good value.

Especially on Monday the serve a very cheap steak delicious. It might be very good to have a drink and have a rush brake.
