Wonderful Irish fare. The place is cute and apparently very popular! My friends and I loved the experience. Waitresses were helpful and accommodating, and the place was packed. I got the Irish Stew, and it was fabulous! Try to go early so you don’t have to wait very long, and be aware that it’s red. There are lots of restaurants around there, and that’ll help you pick this one out!

I stayed in Dublin for eight days, and The Shack had the best food by far. Prices are comparable to other places in Temple Bar and the value is excellent.
Wine list is good and many types of beer are available

We ate here back in 1998 when we were here for the marathon. We all came to eat here after the race. It was wonderful. We found it again and it's still great. We will be back again.

We have visited this restaurant on numerous occassions over 10 or more years. The service is excellent & the menu extensive. Definately worth a visit.

Nice food with a great variety of choice. Service is quick and prompt with good knowledge of what the customer would like. We enjoyed their recommendations. Enjoy both irish and non-irish cuisine.
