Dropped in for a drink on a Saturday night and aside from a hen party the place was dead! No atmosphere nothing. We used to frequent this bar quite a bit when it opened initially and this is the first time we have a been...More

The pub staff were friendly and attentive and the ambience was good. The main food took ages to come . When it did come, though quite tasty portions were very small. My rack of lamb comprised three quite small pieces... all our desserts were disappointing

We rode the train (DART) down from Dublin. Walked all around Dalkey; beautiful little town! Had a full Irish breakfast for my meal here; it was wonderful! Nice decor with comfortable seating and atmosphere. Will return if at all possible!

Bought a "full Irish" breakfast and Americano. Cost me €14. Plate was half full. One piece of bacon, one small piece of black pudding. One slice of toast. Complained but was told this is normal.

I have lunched at Magpie from time to time. Recommended as a good place for pub grub in Dalkey. Good service. Prime position on a corner looking down the main street. Fish pie recommended. Also fish cakes. Friendly service

I ordered avocado toast and was clear that I cannot eat milk products and that I needed a dish with no dairy. When my dish came it was clear that someone had forgotten, grated cheese over it, and then remembered and scraped it off, inevitably...More

Service was good and pub is lovely. However food was terrible. The seafood chowder was like dishwater, and when we sent it back, a replacement still hadn't emerged 20 minutes later, so we left with one of us not haven't eaten at all. Burger was...More
