“Best pub in South Dublin”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

The decor, the staff, the fact no two seats are alike. Great little function room, great music, open mic night in particular is excellent.

STAFF STAFF STAFF, this is how staff should be in all pubs

“Best pub in Dublin!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is by far my favourite spot to go out in Dublin...whether it is just meeting a small group of friends, a night out or a quiet drink with a date...this place has it all. It is cosy with comfy couches and old school decor.There is something on every night of the week with my favourite being the live music on a Thursday and saturday and the open mic on a sunday...some great mixes of music for everyones ear. The staff were ever helpful and friendly making the atmosphere even more homely. They also serve delicious thai food to really mean you never have to leave....if I could make this place my living room I would!!

“A great atmosphere. The pub has character.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

A great atmosphere. The pub has character, old battered leather sofas and 60s furnishings. A lot of different functions going on. We had a good evening here. I couldn't find a loo until a girl pointed out that they were upstairs and ONLY upstairs, they lose a mark for that.

“Cool Retro Pub”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

This pub is just a bit different to the norm, decorated in a cool "retro" style with 60's wallpapers and mixed style comfy couches, good range of drinks and good music on weekend evenings.

“Great Pub”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Gilbert & Wright is a traditional pub near the Dun Laoghaire Dart Station.
On weekends you can find lovely live music. There is a variety of drinks for every taste. If you go there you have to try the Hot Passion cocktail. It is good value.
Also, there is free Wi-Fi.
The atmosphere is very irish and the seats are comfortable. The mixture of clientele is good. Upstairs it is less loud and you are able to talk well with each other.
