“bleeding awful”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Avoid at all costs. Visited on a Friday evening and would urge you not to waste your time. Pizza arrived with the wrong toppings and tasted of nothing. My other halfs meal never arrived. After a couple of slices of replicator pizza with still non sign of the other meal we cut our losses. When we were leaving we were told there had been a mix up. Poor food, worse customer service

“The Bleeding Horse”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

The Bleeding Horse, located on Camden Street, Dublin, is a pub originated back to the 17th century. The pub is probably just as vibrant as it was 200 years ago, when it drew the attention of several great writers, such as James Joyce who mentioned it in his famous work, Ulysses.

Although the sound level was a bit load, (probably because we visited it in the time around Super Bowl) the atmosphere could make anyone feel at home. The pub reaches over several floors with different interior, the upper floors have less leg space than the lower ones, so if you like to stretch out your feet you should settle down at a table on the first floor.

At our visit to the Bleeding Horse we ate burgers, even though the burgers were a little dry they are preferable over McDonalds because of the fact that you are able to see the bits of onion and meat incorporated in the burger. All the burgers also come with fried potato sticks, and a great tomato-chilli sauce.

All in all the Bleeding Horse is worth a visit, if not for the food for the great atmosphere and a lovely, foamy Guinness.

“Okay, at best”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The location is next door to the Camden Court Hotel, a short walk from Dublin Center. It's a large, multi-level bar - more like a bar in the U.S. than an Irish pub. Many large screen TVs so we asked whether the NFL playoff games would be televised. Yes they would be - but then we were warned - "We close at 12:30 AM regardless of how long is left in the game. We don't care what the score is or how important the game - when the clock reads 12:30 AM the TVs go off and it will be time for you to go." With that attitude, he was right - it was time for us to go and we did - to the Woolshed Baa.
