My first stop in Dublin, and this is a place I could stayed for all day, lots of taps and the bottle selection is huge.Nice cosy interior, with flea market furniture feel to it, music played at moderate volume,Pink Floyd and Bowie. People behind the bar was knowledgable about their beers and gave me some good recommendations.

By far the best stop in our Dublin bar crawl. Nice eclectic ambiance with friendly staff and good food. Twenty or so taps plus a handful of casks. Lots of bottles/cans as well. We did flights (3x 7oz per paddle) of the "house" Galway Bay beers and shared some Beavertown fans. All the beers were good, some were better than others. Good spot.

Nice little bar in Dublin. Owned by Galway Bay Brewing, so most of the 20 or so taps featured their beers. Service was friendly and prices were good. Good bottle selection of European and U.S. beers, nothing unusual. Bartender was informative about other Dublin locations to try.

Visited on a busy Saturday night. Propped up the bar as no table. Great range of beer from Irish craft brewers plus further afield. Service good. Not overpriced. Good venue. Not as good as Brew Dock or Against the Grain but worth a stop

Lovely pub featuring lots of Galway Bay beers on tap (8 when I went), plus a other Irish micros and some imports (including Sierra Nevada and Founders). Varied selection of styles. The interior is divided into two sections and feels like a warm, cozy place. Service is very friendly. Prices are reasonable - just over €5 per pint, and you can order halves. Definitely a worthwhile stop on any Dublin pub crawl, especially for the Galway beers.

3 cask taps (most in duplin?) plus plenty of keg. like an oversized living room, comfy chairs ad bare floorboards. Similar feel to other Galway Bars but not particularly my favourite (don’t like the dividing wall). Handy journey break between norseman and Mulligans however.

One of the most complete and detailed bottle menu’s I have ever seen. Several beers on tap, but their bottle menu is amazing. If you are in Dublin and into good beer, this is the place to be.
