There's always a great atmosphere whether you're there as a couple or a big group. The staff are friendly and efficient and the place is really warm and cosy.

Went to the Old Stand on recommendation, not a good choice I'm afraid. Pub is decent, Guinness as expected but the downfall was the food. Our first meal in Dublin on a wet cold afternoon we were really looking forward to a great Irish Stew. Sadly the food fell hugely short of expectations. Two large bowls arrived, looked ok, but...

Was on my own in Dublin on business. Walking around Dublin came across this gem of a bar. Fabulous guinness and great customer service. Had some chips as well and they were delicious. Highly recommend for a visit.

This is a great pub in the city centre. Friendly service and good beer. Gets very busy at weekends as it is a popular spot.

Found this little treasure on St Patrick's day - it was busy but the atmosphere was great - lots of friendly people over in Dublin for the celebrations and the rugby.

We popped in here for some drinks after a movie. Thing about this place is that management is in charge. Yes it has some young staff but they're well trained and cheerful and this old Dublin pub is very good for Dubliners and visitors

Thank A228
