We wandered into Nancy Hands as we were staying nearby, and not interested in the expensive steak house next door. The atmosphere was warm, and chummy had and the patina of age that is so often imitated here in the States. My husband had lamb in rosemary sauce that was to die for. I had a stew with a pastry top which was nice, and very Irish. We really enjoyed this first Irish dinner.

This was a stop off for us when leaving the Zoo and heading back to town. I would recommend stopping off here and having a drink its a nice pub with real Irish spirit.

We ate at Nancy Hands on an earlier trip to Dublin, and enjoyed it very much, so we were happy to find it again on our recent trip. It was a cozy, quiet retreat after a very long day and night of traveling, and we thoroughly enjoyed the great, friendly service, tasty food, and properly-poured pints of Guinness, as we waited for our hotel room to be ready. We did have a bit of a wait to pay the bill, as one server had been left alone to cover the entire place while her co-worker stepped out to run an errand, but she was pleasant, and apologetic, and the overall experience was very nice.

Dinner on a Monday night..rather quiet night and no Irish music. Wait staff didn't appear very enthusiastic. Food was good and of course, Guinness was even better!
