“Best chicken wings in Dublin!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

I cannot recommend this place enough! Reasonably priced, excellent atmosphere with great music, super staff and not to mention the delicious food! My favourite thing on the menu has to be the chicken wings. I'd go as far as saying you haven't lived till you've tried them! The menu itself is very varied and I always find myself going back for more. The atmosphere at night is brilliant too, great music to bust out your best moves on the dancefloor, the craic is always brilliant. They also have good promotions on for cheaper drinks on Sundays...I've brought a couple of tourist friends here and they have loved it, it's a traditonal irish pub with a modern twist, you can't go wrong. GO THERE!
