The menu is reasonably priced. I got chicken wings for starters, burger for mains. Being a lover of wings, unfortunately I would not choose these again - they seemed a bit fatty! The burger was well sized, definitely excellent for an empty stomach. Maybe they errr slightly over-cooked. I love the fact that the waiter leaves you with a tray... More

Stopped here for a pint before bedtime. We stayed across the street at the Dublin Skylon. This place has an area for live music but sadly there wasn't a band playing when we were there. There are plenty of seats and the bartender was very friendly. Plenty of beers on tap. I had a delicious pint of Beamish. Great nightcap

Went for drinks with a group of friends. Nice bar, good music and excellent atmosphere. The only downside is the smell of paint, but the waiter explained that the place is been renovated.

Visited The Ivy House yesterday for lunch with some family members. The pub was quiet so we were seated straight away. The menu is varied so we were able to pick options that suited everyone. However, when the food arrived, it was far below the standard we expected. I ordered a steak cooked medium rare. It was served medium and... More

It's been a while since I have been here and very dissapointed tonight. The actual bar smells of bins. It's a Saturday night at 10.30pm and they've already ran out of prosecco. Soft drinks are warm. No floor staff clearing glasses or cleaning tables. Definitely gone down hill.

Just across the road from the Skylon Hotel it's a great pub, with entertainment and fab food. I had bruchetta and wasn't disappointed. We met all our relatives in there and had a real laugh. It was mix of young and old and a great start to our Dublin weekend.
