Lovely little pub with a great atmosphere near to the Guinness Storehouse, great service and very friendly staff. There was a good food menu and there were quite a few people eating although we didn't have food, just a couple of drinks. Well worth a visit

“Nice pub that deserves to be busier”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Any time I go in here it seems very quiet. It's a pity because it's a nice pub and has a lovely real open fire. I'd recommend it to tourists visiting Guinness up the road. I haven't tried the food, so I can't comment on that.

“Slow, snippy service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Ate here for a work lunch. Food arrived quite late, and one of the orders was wrong (just the side order). This was sent back to correct, and the rest of us had finished before the dish came back. Once the final dish came back, the main was cold so the order was cancelled. Service was a little patchy, but there was also a bit of snippiness around the staff's mix up on the order/cold main. Won't be going back.

“Best Burger in Europe.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Arthur's, just steps away from the Guinness Storehouse, was a phenomenal surprise we stumbled on accidentally. We were fresh off the last Guinness tour of the day and were hungry and thirsty for more of Ireland's finest, and were thrilled with this place. The bartender was absolutely hilarious and really witty, which was a nice touch. The Storehouse employees that were showing us around were there after closing too, and approached us to share a couple of drinks and tips about Dublin. It's always nice when a few locals go out of their way to help out a few naive Canadians! The Traditional Irish Stew was the best we had in all of Ireland. The Fish and Chips rivaled some of the best we had in our entire tour of Ireland and the UK. My personal favourite was my dish, which was Arthur's Burger. What an absolute gem. The meat and toppings were absolutely to die for. I knew I was in for a treat when the server said "nice choice," but I wasnt expecting it to be THAT good. I've been to over 20 countries in Europe, and this was by far the best burger I've ever had. GUARANTEED! Thanks Arthur's, I'll be seeing you again very soon on my next trip to Ireland!

From Alex and the Canadians, at Arthur's February 19, 2013.
