Our meal at Johnnie Fox's was first class. Oyster, prawns, salmon, a traditional Irish stew, cabbage/potatoes and bacon and feather blade beef that melted in the mouth. The musician was good and also funny - he had everyone joining in the singing. Definitely give this place a try.

We were part of an RIT tour group. The fixed menu choices were awful. The dessert was disgusting. The entertainment was mediocre. Boring!!

This was our last stop on our C.I.E. tour of Ireland . It was the best way to end our FABULOUS TOUR. Food , service and entertainment was great. All our servers were great and server Ann made the most scrumptious bread that was served with our meals.

It is a typical Irish traditional Pub and restaurant situated on the Dublin Mountains. The workers are friendly and the meals are excellent. Every evening they play Irish music. It has a lovely view of the Dublin mountains during summer when the sky is clear. When it is cold you find fire in differentpoint of the pub.

Walk through the entire restaurant to... More
