Description: Situated overlooking Central Bank Square in the heart of Dublin city centre, The Foggy Dew offers a charming blend of old world tradition fused with an appealing contemporary atmosphere.This historical bar is the perfect spot for a quiet afternoon pint or alternatively a great meeting place before heading out on the town.The major strength of the Foggy Dew is that it provides all the best qualities of a local bar coupled with a great city centre location. The cosy size means that you will never lose your friends although if you need to escape for whatever reason there are plenty of corners for you to hide behind!Whether dropping by for a friendly drink, settling in to watch the match or just enjoying the great music from the Foggy Dew DJ or a live band on a Sunday evening, we are sure you will find a warm welcome with great service in a comfortable setting.

Bad time to visit, Ireland were playing football and in addition to the many tv screens, it was being blasted out of every speaker in the pub, which happen to be right were there are the only places to stand. The service was good and the pub looked really inviting. The drinks prices were bad with over 25 euros for 2 halves and 2 bottles of cider. buy by the time we had shouted to each other and tried moving 4 times we just could not get away from the ear piercing sound. It needed to go down a few notches. We ended up leaving before the last in the party finished their drinks as the headaches were setting in and we were losing our voices. It will be a great place with the sound a little lower. Will try it once more when the football is not on.

Kind of stumbled across this bar, and was enticed in by the sound if live music. The placed was packed and bouncing. The live band was amazing, an odd mix of reggae and SKA, but they certainly had the place jumping. Enjoyed it so much, went back the next night for a bit more of the same, but alas no live music on Mondays. Had a great night though, and beer prices very reasonable here!

This pub is one of the best in Dublin for Friday night drinks with friends after work. Great atmosphere and reasonably priced drinks.

Came in out of the rain after leaving the busy temple bar area to have a pint and a snack. The bar is very lively, crowded...but not packed like The Temple Bar. Good music. Ordered chips, nothing special...but service is good.
