While this pub offers an OK range by international standards they have staff who are extremely rude (not all just one) and for that reason alone I’ll not be back next time in Dublin. As a widely travelled 40 something craft beer afficionado, I can do without being patronised and smirked at when trying to get bar service. Pretty pathetic & luckily unusual.

Nice pubs. Sometimes a little empty (and sometinmes too packed) but overall it’s OK. Large choice of beers :)

Another great craft beer pub with a lovely atmosphere in which to enjoy the big selection of local and international beers. Pretty good food available also.

Great craft beer haven on dublin’s south side.
Lovely atmosphere with no tv or loud music, good for a chat. Gets very, very busy at weekends, although they’ve got an upstairs seating area to help with overflow.
Beer selection is one of the best in the city with around 20 taps pouring a large amount of local & international offerings. Cask beer on hand pump too, although not always well kept. Bottle selection is pretty good (if very pricey) with a special fridge devoted to rarer beers on the Irish market (mikkeller, 750ml bottles, less common USA & Belgian beers etc.) Whisk(e)y selection pretty good, but again bloody expensive.
Food is hearty, decent quality pub grub at fair prices.
Staff is friendly, enthusiastic and (some) are knowledgeable about the products which is always a good sign - a few of them haven’t a clue though.
Well worth a visit.

good idea with 3 samples for 6€. fine local selection both by the bottle and draught. boring atmosphere (was there mid afternoon, so sat alone most of the time) tenders seem to know their stuff.

Visited in Jan this year on my trip to Dublin. Nice cozy pub, quite a student hang out feel to it. Very friendly barstaff, the manager took quite an interest in chatting to me about the beers etc, has a nice selection of Irish craft brews, they also host ’meet the brewer’ nights etc. The food was superb, I had the felafel wrap and it was delicious. Very reasonably priced too. It’s a sister pub of Oslo and The Salt house in Galway. Pretty much a must visit in Dublin.

Decent beer bar sort of place, with a good selection including a number of microbrews and some foreign bottles. There wasn’t any thing too exotic, but it is one of the few places in Dublin that is reliable for better beer.
