“Awesome service!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

I came here with a group of 16 other college kids on a spring break study abroad trip. I am sure that we were loud and somewhat stereotypical Americans, but our server, Dervla, was absolutely amazing. We didn't know to ask for separate checks at the beginning of a meal, but she was nice enough to go through the hassle of splitting it at the end. She even made great recommendations for other stops along our trip! The food was great, the beer was cold (local brews and international brands), and the atmosphere with live music was so much fun. I will definitely be going back if I am ever back in Ireland!!

“Best Irish bar in Dublin!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Went here a few times whilst we were visiting Dublin. Live music and atmosphere was brilliant. The nightclub upstairs played a good variety of music. The staff were very friendly and we even met Bad Bob himself, well the owner of Bad Bobs! What a lovely guy! Would highly recommend a visit to Bad Bobs if your in Dublin!!
