“Celtic Nights!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

During our visit to Dublin we attended the Celtic Nights evening including a 3 course meal and entertainment consisting of a traditional band and dancers.

The staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and attentive - even in the extremely busy environment. Always asking if everything was alright or if anything else was wanted.

The food is good - plenty of variety on the night including; Vegeterian option, Salmon, Chicken, Steak, Pork and more. Drinks are quite pricey at the hotel but as it's city centre it is expected.

The band 'Puca' were really good - very talented, entertaining and funny. They are incredible good fun and encourage audience participation which makes the evening very good. The Dancers are also very talented and great for experiencing traditional dancers.

“Fantastic Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

OMG, if this is the standard Irish breakfast, I don't know how they move the rest of the day. The service was great, even though I had to keep saying less, not so much. The variety of foods offered were more than enough to accommodate any taste.

“good food .friendly barstaff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

We booked in here to watch the dancing and have a meal. for the money we paid it was a great night.. I always think where ever you travel you should sample some of the culture otherwise whats the point. the show was great and the food enjoyable. the craic was fantastic. we ate the following day in the bar the food again was presented well and with a smile and the price was reasonable, They do not do a Sunday roast here but directed us to wynns hotel around the corner from the Arlington they do a carvery. the irish roast beef was to die for although the resteraunt itself was very reserved.

“The craic is mightly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

The craic in this pub is mighty, it is very spacious and you do not feel like you are on top of each other while seated. The show is absolutely amazing and gets the crowd going. The food is a bit pricey for what you are getting even though the portions are decent, the food is traditionally bland and nothing to write home about but given the location, you ca't go wrong if you want to have a bit of fun and a bite to eat and are not fussed about Michelin stars.

“Rub Trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Stayed at the Arlington - had a bar snack lunch there which was fine, nothing special but the staff were a delight. Hotel is quirky from the outside and rather gloomy when you get inside but go and see for yourself!
