“Irish ambience”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Broad menu, good food, good coffee and a good range of alcoholic brilliance
I had the Guinness pie which I can recommend
Good value meals and a great atmosphere which gathers momentum as the night wears on.

“A touch of the Irish in Glenelg”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

A great location right in the heart of Glenelg. We spent an enjoyable Monday evening having dinner at the Dublin, the staff were very attentive and we really enjoyed our mains and the best chocolate pudding dessert. The upstairs deck is a nice place to relax with a cold beer or wine and watch the world go by.

“Laid Back & Care Free”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

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 !

“Watch the world go by over lunch !”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

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.

“I agree "Absolute Disgrace"”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

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.
