good place but not the best one, some of the taps are very common, looks like a sports bar, but still have good stuff though

Nice pub. Great beer, great food, not expensive. Sometimes a little empty but when there is a lot of people it becomes noisy.

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.

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 it’s 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, it’ll be the 1st pub i’ll go to!

By far my favorite ’craft beer’ spot in Dublin, if there is even such a thing as an active beer scene. Nice location on the outskirts of Temple Bar in front of ChristChurch. Great draft selection of many Irish and Northern Ireland craft beers all reasonably priced but still pricey for the quality that you are getting. Very nice and clean inside with either low-key atmosphere or more active during the football game. We got an excellent service from Dave who suggested many beers and even offered samples. Food had the Irish influence with many American undertones as well. Cajun burger was nice as were the ribs, though a little undercooked. Everything is reasonably priced considering it is Dublin and that place being about the few places in Dublin actively supporting Irish craft beers.

Beershine  (698) The Sunshine State, Florida | March 8, 2011
Most likely the best beer selection in Dublin, as far as scope, variety, freshness, and quality of Irish microbrews is concerned. Split-level, with restaurant on bottom and pub on top. Pub usually feels strangely empty even when there are people inside because the place is so big and it lacks intimacy. There are several long wooden tables so would be a great place for a group party. Crowd is mixed but mostly young, not a lot of crusty old-timers here.

It was a bit quiet when we were there, just after opening time, but it felt like a good place to have a pint and the beers on tap were mostly Irish craft brews. Good food, reasonable prices, definitely a place I would visit again when next I go to Ireland.

Best beer bar in Dublin. Great if your sick of guinness and killkenny. Not a bad atmosphere, descent young local professional crowd. Worth a stop.
