1 of my favourite pubs in the world, without doubt my favourite in Ireland. People tend to talk about The Porterhouse and how great their selection of beer is, but I find myself more impressed with the selection here. This bar and itís bar management are big advocates of Irish craft beer and tends to stock most, if not all craft beer brewed in Ireland. The food too is really good, and the staff are both knowedgeable and friendly, which is a rarity these days in Dublin. The beerhall upstairs is one of my favourite places in Dublin. Looking forward to my trip home to Dublin soon, itíll be the 1st pub iíll go to!

Arrived here late afternoon after a long walk from St. James Gate. The place was mostly empty...but I could appreciate the layout and great feel of the bar. The couple of bartenders I talked to really enjoyed helping me try a variety of beers and shared much about the culture of the place. I thought the selection was very good. I also liked the decor that used a lot of beer signage in a good way. Upstairs is the place to go. I recommend a stop here if you are not going too far out of your way.

Seguramente volverŪa mas por la comida que por la cerveza aunque no falte, mas que suficiente las selecion de craft, casi todas las irlandesas. Ahora la comida es increible, totalmente de acuerdo con quien diga: el mejor gastropub de Dublin!!!

This is a Gastropub in a German beer hall style. The menu is well thought out and all dishes have beers paired with them, a very unique selling point in Ireland. The staff are very helpfull and at long last, a pub in Ireland that has REAL glassware. The decor is wooden with vintage beer signs and advertisements everywhere, the Keg room is viewable to the public also and the selection of beers is second to none, they serve Irish Microbrew which in itself is a rarity, Galway hooker is a prime example of this. All in all I think that this is the jewel in the crown of Dublins pubs and one which must not be missed if you visit. **On a side note, they are running a beer challenge and when you complete a set list of beers, you get your very own glass with your name engraved on it for use in the pub when you are there**

Go up the stairs to the beerhall. Lot of taps with the regular Irish ones and lot of Irish Craft beers. Also a fridge of (Northern) Irish beers and other countries.

A great experience, my personal best of Waterford and Dublin. The scenery here is rustic, very German feeling indeed, and the social side of things matches that of Germany, a true public environment. The food was solid as was the beer selection and quality. If I pass through Dublin again, Iíll no doubt return to here.

Best place Iíve been in Dublin. Cosy, busy - even on a friday afternoon - and friendly. The staff was friendly but not very knowledgable. Good selection, mainly German, English and (micro) Irish. Offered bottles for take away prices.

Good food, good beer, good service. The value and selection were typical. The food was decently good. I enjoyed our time here. Just wish they had more selection.

This is a funny place, not sure how to rate it fairly actually. Exterior and interior dťcor are absolutely fantastic, classy, comfortable, charming, canít say enough about the look of it. The food menu is equally wonderful, had a 10oz ribeye with chips and was cooked perfectly, the rest of the group had different mains and they all loved them. Hereís where this place gets weird, the waiters were from Eastern Europe and couldnít care less about beer, whatís on draft, whatís in the cooler, and whatís worse is they got annoyed with me for asking, like I should just order a Guinness and be happy about it. Beer hall is being renovated, so Iíll have to come back to see that when its done. Overall this is a wonderful place that I will definitely be back to, but Iíll talk directly to the barman first.
