Came here for dinner, drinks, and music. The food is cafeteria style but quite good. They have lots of traditional Irish fare and some vegetarian options. Lots of beer and whiskey options. Books and crannies all over the pub let you choose how loud you want your table to be. They had traditional Irish dancers along with the music for...

We came here for dinner at the recommendation of our host. Guests order their meal cafeteria style, at a counter and then any food that is prepared to order, is brought to your table. They were out of the entree that I wanted, but everything that we ordered was excellent. I couldn't finish the meal because there was so much...

The food at this Pub is really good, wholesome Irish fare. Served from a canteen affair at the back you take your own food to your table and enjoy. The ambience is traditional vintage Dublin culture, near to Trinity College and offices, lunchtime clients are often suited businessmen or professors or students. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. Up a...

Did not sleep here, but went here for dinner. We are not beer drinkers, but looking at the bar, they have so many options. The food is like a cafeteria, and is very good with large portions at a great price. Gets crowded and can be difficult to find a seat.

Had a meal in here recently and not being the first time we knew what to expect. Having 2 young kids with us we decided to let them eat first before ordering our meals. the kids meals and my parents meals looked fantastic and more than one person could possibly eat. Plates stacked high with all you could wish for....

This very old pub has been upgraded superbly without losing any of the traditional ambiance. We were there for a an old firm reunion lunch and drinks (the entire afternoon), and everything was perfect. The buffet style meals were novel but satisfying. And of course, its city centre location is spot on!

We were able to walk to city in 5mins where restaurants, pubs and tours are. Accommodation was great with lots of space and nice ensuite - really good shower. This pub is closed on Sundays so we didn't get to eat there, except for breakfast.

Loved the way dinner worked with huge portions of fresh food at an affordable price served in a buffet-style line. A great selection of beer topped it off and we loved all the little sections and individual bars throughout. Everyone seems receptive to our presence and overall we loved dinner here. Only complaint is we got too much food to...

If you want to stay in a centrally located place in Dublin, this is the location. It is across the street from Trinity College, the bus stops and walking distance to Templebar. The facility is worldclass as a B and B. The owner greeted us, served us later in the bar and remembered our names. The room was wonderful. I...

Tired and hungry on arrival in Dublin my colleagues and I were directed to this pub as a recommendation for dinner. Well it was just lovely. Welcoming, hearty food (including a good choice of vegetarian options), sublime Guinness, great Irish music and Irish dancing. The perfect welcome to Ireland. Thank you. I absolutely recommend this place - tried to return...
