This is a nice place, good atmosphere, rather informal and fun to go. I had the 3 strike chicken (spicy chicken wings and some more) and this good. Good beer and good vibe in the place.

This is the sentral place to go in Dun Laoghaire. We tried this for 3 purposes: Breakfast, dinner and a night out. Breakfast was good, both the traditional Irish, and Eggs Benedict. Good value for money. The dinner was not that successful, a burger menu and half a chicken. It took less than 5 min to serving and that because... More

Staff were friendly and helpful. We were served very quickly and the food was delicious, the sausages were really nice and tasty.

This is a Weatherspoons pub so you will probably find the cheapest pint in Dun Laoghaire here. The bar is located up a couple of flights of stairs so you get elevated views of the harbour. It's modern inside and the restrooms are particularly impressive and modern. Staff are friendly and there is a good selection of bar food. The... More

We went here for lunch as we just wanted a snack. Very large menu but really average food. We wanted toasted sandwiches and they were just ok, one of us had a burger and it was awful. It's a Weatherspoons chain and from being in them in the U.K. We expected better

Thank gerifc
