“Absolutely a MUST!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

We visited Dublin recently and stumbled upon The Hairy Lemon. A gem of a place away from touristy Temple Bar area. Classic Irish pub with the most delicious classic Irish food. Banger & Mash and Coddle Pie were to die for. Darren and his team have got it right. Friendly, welcoming and attentive. I never had an empty pint of Guinness. Top notch.

“Classic Dublin pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Classic Dublin pub. Great name and story behind it. Really friendly bartenders. Expertly poured Guinness of course. Lots of stuff on walls, antiques, etc to look at while enjoying a pint. Was in Dublin for a week on business staying at the Radisson Blu and this was like home base for us.

“Gaeilge and Irish atmosphere at Hairy Lemon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

A Chairde, some of us get together for lunch trí Ghaeilge every Wednesday at the Hairy Lemon. Bíonn fáilte mór romhainn. Its like a home from home, but with much better cooking. The staff are so welcoming and speak Gaeilge to us, they are promoting the Irish language and using it often. We find the atmosphere just great, a true return to Dublin in the rare 'oul times. We wish we could stay all day but its a lovely relaxing lunch, and the red wine is always excellent and tasty. We go there for special occasions too, and hope to hold a few ócáidi there, tá súil againn, i rith 2013 !
Go raibh maith agaibh ar fad sa Hairy Lemon, agus gach rath ar an obair !

“Lovely Traditional Irish Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Me and my soul went for an early lunch on last Tuesday . We haven't been here before but was very impressed with the tasty food especially the lamb shank! Perfectly cooked on a bed of potatoes and veg floating on the lovely sauce ! Staff was very friendly and. helpful . I have to say the atmosphere inside brings you deep into the Irish history and give you a real taste of Ireland !:))

If you ever come to Dublin you should definitely have a lunch or for a pint of Guinness !!

:)
