Very Irish bar in the middle of Saigon. Tons of Irish Whiskeys and a very friendly owner. Im not much of a whiskey drinker, however I did enjoy the fish and chips and the overall ambiance. If you are looking for an Irish themed place, you found it.

Drinks were good and bar food was pretty solid. Nice place for a quick stop. Pool table in back so you might want to stay for more than just one pint!

Went here twice during our stay in Ho Chi Minh in a group of 8. First visit was dinner - prices seemed good, but meal service was very poor. One meal served 20mins after everyone else had finished theirs and only offered one free drink compensation. Coffee took ages to come out and was cold. 3 food orders were checked... More

Good atmosphere, live music was very good also. The food was very good, sometimes hard to find in most Asian countries, Irish Bars trying to replicate western cuisine... but this place does very well here. Staff very friendly and a very friendly owner who welcomes all to his bar. Defo recommend a visit here while in HCMC

I've been coming here for over two years and the Food, drinks and hospitality is top class and what you would expect from an Irish Bar. The owners are very hands on and ensure the staff do their best to keep everyone happy. I've just had a full Irish breakfast and it had all the items you would expect including... More

Hi Couples, sorry you had not the best experience at The Dublin Gate. The last week being Christmas is the busiest time of year for the pub with a high demand on the kitchen but i will have to call you out on the 1 hour wait for your soup as we did not have any record of this happening... More

Its very friendly and the atmosphere is comfortable. Unfortunately it's very pricey and the costs are around the same you would find in England.

Hi Rob thanks for the review. Your comment about the pricing is taken onboard but given you are in a quality venue in Dist 1 (not sitting on the street) Saigon two blocks from the Opera House with prices for example like a glass of local larger Tiger at 45,000VND £1.60 or Fish & Chips 160,000VND £5.70 i would not...

Dropped by with a large group two nights in a row, post a conference. Bernie was superhelpful, and the prices are , while above what one might pay elsewhere, more than fair for location and ambiance. The pool area is nice, and the bar area fun. Good band there one night, solid pub fare. Only downside is that the staff... More

Stopped in to escape the heat and pho. Nice enough place but 90K for a pint of Tiger? A bit much. Stick to the local spots :)

This is a lovely pub. Tasteful decor and most agreeable ambiance. Efficient and friendly service and a superb Guinness and beef pie. I live in Hanoi and come to Saigon for work once a month. I will be a regular here on my visits to Saigon.
