Stopped in because I had read that they served craft beer (nice break from all the Guinness and Smithwicks I had been drinking). Pretty good sized bar with alot of space to sit. Good selection of craft beers including their own brand. If you like craft beer then I would say come here and give it a try

We ordered 2 samplers which came with 3 beers each. We loved all of them. The only problem was they didn't have the paddle and cards to let us know which beers were which. The server also seemed confused as to which ones she was giving us. But I'd go again.

Popped in for an afternoon drink. We were greeted at the bar and told about the beer of the day. Not being to our taste we chose some ale from the bar. I enjoyed the red ale I had and at €5 a pint it was reasonable for Dublin prices. Great vibe in the bar even though a quiet afternoon.

I found my girlfriend and myself coming back to this place every evening to grab a nice pint: the simple reason is the amazing decoration of the pub, and the very high quality in-house brewed beers that they have on draft. Staff was very friendly and pub was clean and had a great ambience. Would recommend to any beer lover,... More

Visited with a group from the UK, including 3 teenage girls. The barman didn't like the tip we gave him and became abusive. We decided to leave. He followed us outside and barged aside one of the girls to enable him to give a foul mouthed four letter rant on how it was no wonder they didn't like the Brits,... More

First, this is in the Temple Bar area, where you must go to see the night life. The food was good pub food, but you are not here for the food, but rather the beer and they not only brew their own world class beers, they have beers, whiskey and rum from around the world. The place is very cozy.... More

This pub looks really nice and modern yet cosy. Weekend night was packed, very good live band was playing too. Would love to come back when it's less full

Nice live music on the night we went. The beer selection was phenomenal and they brew a good selection of their own beer in house. The food however was mediocre at best, nothing special or to brag about. Wouldn't eat here again, but would definitely go back for a beer. The staff was also friendly with good service.

This is probably one of my favorite places to come grab a pint. Brain Blasta is probably one of my new go-to drinks when I visit. The staff was friendly and the entire place has a wonderful atmosphere. Definitely try and make it there when some live music is happening!
