Grogans is a Dublin institute at this stage. Yes some of the staff may be a little curt but it adds to the experience. It’s great to see this place hasn’t changed much in over 27 years that I have been going there. The art...More

Wonderful atmosphere and staff. Great variety of beers. I discovered this place in 2012 and I pop in everytime I come to Dublin. Grogan's is a must!

Had a Sunday afternoon Guinness in this very busy yet relaxed bar. Bar staff and bar flies were friendly and chatty. Atmosphere was excellent. Food options don't extend beyond toasted sandies but plenty of food options nearby.
