We went for a walk in Dalkey- a beautiful spot in the south of Dublin and then we stopped of here for a drink and sat outside. Though it was packed we managed to find a spot and it was extremely hot. People were all very friendly. The staff was great and we had bottles of Bulmers with ice. it was a great experience of Ireland in a wonderul place. Not what I expected. the food looked great, but we didn't eat anything as we had eaten in a lovely cafe beforehand. I would highly recommend Dalkey and Finnegans for a great Irish experience.

Had lunch here with a business associate on Friday last and it really was excellent. We both had the fish of the day which was beautifully fresh haddock wrapped in breadcrumbs served with chips and veg. Really delicious. Washed down by a nice bottle of Rosé and followed by the cheese plate and a superb Bordeaux made this a perfect lunch. The 26C tempretatures sitting outside did help I admit. It really is a sun trap out the front of the pub.

Superb lunch overall.

Wine list could perhaps be a little longer and there are no craft beers just the bland International brands but these are minor gripes.

Lovely 'traditional' pub with good food and great service. Always a nice crowd there too - recently visited by Michelle Obama no less!

Fish 'n Chips is crispy and the quality of fish is excellent.
Slightly pricy but totally worth it.
