Stopped in for one cool drink on a late Friday afternoon after a dip in the Ocean but ended up staying for several hours watching the passing parade alight from/join the trams , stroll to and from the Beach etc, etc. Had a very reasonably priced bar meal (beer battered fish) and enjoyed the afternoon. The interior was a bit dark but funky in its own way and the place was busy and filled up when we left. Dropped back in around 11pm to have a quite one on the balcony and the house music was a bit too much for us , but hey, everyone else seemed to be enjoying it !! Would be a good spot on a warm Saturday or Sunday arvo to while away some time, Enjoy !

We had lunch here after spending the day shopping and at the beach. Sat outside people watching and a nice water spray from the fountain on a hot day. inside is rather dark and stuffy as it doesn't have any windows.
The Chicken Schnitzels are well worth the money, as well as the beer battered fish. Both dishes were tasty washed down with a pure blonde and a sav blanc.
Only negative is the staff, need a bit more training with customer service and learn to smile !
Great place to relax after a day on the beach. Would highly recommend.

Carpets are soaked in alcohol and your feet get stuck to the floor. Tables are tacky and sticky they do not seem to get cleaned at all. The seats are all ripped and torn. They have removed all the best beer from the taps that they had, now it is a rubbish choice of beer on tap. The toilets are disgusting, taps are broken, buckets under the sinks, tiles cracked and broken and very smelly. Staff are rude and have no idea how to treat customers. Tried a cocktail but never had the ingredients to complete it. This is the most expensive place to purchase beverages $18 for 2 regular drinks. This used to be a great place to go, now it is an "Absolute disgrace" and staff should feel ashamed to work in these conditions.

Very unhappy with the Dublin Hotel. My son won a voucher as part of his prize at the Beach Volleyball competition. The background is that the Dublin as part of the Jetty Rd Traders had sponsored the organisation running the volleyball and received thanks and recognition at every event as part of this sponsorship. A win/win you might say? That's what we thought until we tried to redeem said voucher (and yes it was within the time allocated AND we had a written copy of the Jetty Rd Traders we could use it at on hand for the staff to verify) and the staff said they were instructed the that hotel had changed hands and they don't honour them anymore. What kind of business accepts the extra trade and promotion from a summer sponsorship and then refuses to honour when the time comes for the payback??? The Dublin, apparently. I am spreading this story on every social media platform I can
