WE went here for a couple of drinks and appetizers. During happy hour everything was half off.. We had a great time sitting outside. It is a beautiful pub. It was shipped here from Ireland. We had great service and the food was good. :)

I’m not sure why they call this place The Dubliner, when the sign outside indicates Dublin Square Irish Pub and Restaurant, but really don’t care. It has fresh Guinness and good food. It was a Slow Sunday. Happy hour between 11 AM and 8 PM....More

Grabbed dinner here during our stay in the Gaslamp District. The good is that it has an Irish bar type decor with a pretty good imported beer and cider offering. The bad is that the service was average at best and the food was authentic...More

This is a very popular pub in the heart of Gaslamp, usually filled with young adults and Irish and Great Britain tourists. The appearance looks like a real Irish pub, the service was a delight (our young woman server had only arrived from Dublin, Ireland,...More

The Dubliner doesn't just look like a piece of Ireland-it actually is a piece of Ireland. Before getting shipped across the Atlantic Ocean to its home in the Gaslamp Quarter, the pub was manufactured on the island by O'Sullivan Interiors. What's more, it's based on an authentic pub whose roots stretch back to the early 1700s. Guests can experience this homage by sidling up to the Irish oak bar, or toasting themselves next to the cast-iron fireplace in the Victorian Lounge. Of course, the food and drink are likewise Irish-inspired: beer-battered fish and chips, Guinness-braised beef, and an Irish lamb stew loaded with potatoes, onions, carrots, and fresh Colorado lamb. On certain nights, the pub buzzes with trivia competitions, karaoke performances, and lively sets from local bands. Join us for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Desserts! We also have a great Irish brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 9am - 2pm!
