For our first meal in Dublin we wanted to go somewhere traditional. It was very busy although it was the 2nd of January, but we got a table no problem. The staff were very accommodating and welcoming, although it did seem a bit hap hazard. Our order came pretty quickly, full breakfast and chicken burger. The full breakfast was fine, but the chicken burger was very tough and the bun had a very greasy large onion ring on it, making it really soggy. We felt that with so many different memorabilia stuck to most of the walls and ceilings, it felt a bit grubby.

We enjoyed lunch here on our recent trip to Dublin. I had made reservations which wound up not being needed because when we arrived, we were 1 of 3 tables in the whole place. After we ordered it seemed to pick up a bit. The food was good but the service was slow and we kept having to repeatedly ask for the same items over and over. None the less, was a good and tasty lunch!

With 6 friends of mine we visited this famous bar. After ordering 6 main courses, we asked for an Irish coffe. The guy told us he was too busy to serve us even if there were nobody at the bar.
We felt very disappointing because of the mediocrity of the service.
I definitely don’t recommand this bar.
