I know this place since... forever and a day! And it hasn't changed. It is old-fashioned in the nicest possible way and it stems from a time when people took time to do things well. When I am in Dublin I go to the bar...More

We went there just to have a Guiness and then stayed together with some friends for an hour. The service was ok and the staff very friendly that made us stay longer as we wanted.

Traditional Irish pub. Very comfortable. Very good price for a sandwich. Don't expect any trimming but a lovely place to relax and take a break from the shopping. Staff and service good.
