Very grown up sort of cinema experience. Very nice and relaxed atmosphere, no butter popcorn in sight. Lovely cafe to dine in. Only problem is the amount of cinema snobs it attracts, who just love to spout on (loudly) about the artistic integrity of every scene that's presented to them. Just enjoy the movie sometimes, and worry about other things.

On side street of Temple Bar area, IFI is the best place to see art house and independent films made in Ireland or the rest of the world. Pleasant Pub is also on premises. A little bit of Greenwich Village in Dublin.

plenty of choice of films here that you wont see in main cinemas. good way to rest weary feet and get out of adverse weather. not too pricey and refreshments good value. films change regularly and even if you are on a short stay you will get something to suit

Best place in Dublin to see films that don't show on the usual blockbuster circuit. The building is really nice, too, although I wasn't that enthused about the attached cafe.
