I had a good lunch here while watching an international cricket match in the nearby park. The pint of Guinness was smooth and creamy and went down well with the Guinness and beef pie. Just thought the gravy in the pie disappeared a bit quickly...More

Had the seafood chowder - which was mostly potato. Husband had mushroom soup, which was more of a bisque with no mushrooms in it. The fish and chips were overly greasy. Burger was good. Service was good. I wouldn't go back again.

We had a couple of pints and dinner at Duffy's, and it was excellent. The burgers are fantastic, and the service was very good. It was a very pleasant experience, highly recommend!

The place was busy when we arrived but we were both greeted and served very quickly. The food was of a high standard for the price and will return.

A well-lit pub with a decent menu. I tend toward house specials and wasn't disappointed by the Duffy's burger, which was both filling and not badly priced. A good Malahide experience without being a boutique-priced one!

This is a great pub in Malahide for a quiet drink during the week or if you want to enjoy live music at weekends. The food is excellent and the Wednesday Steak Special is great value. Last but not least the staff are very welcoming...More

Usually, we try to avoid the nearest pub to the train station in towns we have never visited before. Thankfully, this was not the case when we visited Malahide. Duffy's....what a great pub! Food and beverages were outstanding, and the wait staff kind and helpful....More

This is a nice country pub with good food and ambiance. There is even a quite room upstairs to escape the noice in the main public room. Only down was that they close the kitchen at 9PM even on a Friday night.
