Visited here August 2nd 2014 and had a great time. Bar staff were friendly and served me quickly. Generally a nice place with lots of interesting people to chat to. They had all the good old Irish beers and ciders on tap and as many whiskies as you could want. I really enjoyed this pub!
Met here after work for evening drinks and food with work colleagues. We were mainly outside in the alley as we were 15 in the group. Its good fun and the staff were the right balance between stern, friendly and responsible :) There was a bouncer who checks ids and basically makes sure that if you're drinking outside that you were seated. He knew when to be relaxed about the rule and when to enforce, i.e he didn't act like a robot. The waitress was fun, chatty and good laugh, also knowing when to tell us off for standing and drinking and when to joke :) Food was simple filling bar snacks - nachos, calamari and other meat snacks. Overall - a great place to meet up :)
Believe the previous good reviews about this place and make the trip down the alley. Great atmosphere, food and service. Don't let the outside fool you. Had one meal in the alley with some very good, cold beer and then went inside another evening. Burgers, beer and lots of choices. Very worth while.
Don't let the walk down the ally fool you, the Irish Bank is good food, fun atmosphere, and helpful staff. We will come again next time we visit the city.
