Was there on a Saturday night, and the place was jammed and a bit too much like a disco for my liking. Music obnoxiously loud. Great selection, both on tap and in bottles, from all over the world. Staff were efficient, given the crowds. I’d like to go back at a better time and sample some more, but it’s a decent place to stop in.

Best place in Dublin to enjoy local quality brews. Frindly service. Selection is very good for Dublin. Definately the place to visit if you’re in Dublin, but go for the local stuff.

Best place I’ve 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.

I was there on a slow night, and yet the service wasn’t very fast. This isn’t such a big deal though. I liked the place anyway. It has a big beerhall upstairs with plenty of seats. It’s easy to like this place...

Good variery of interbational and Irish craft brew right across from Christ Church Cathedral. Decent prices for Dublin and a big comfortable bar. Beer hall upstairs, open evenings, is a nice high ceilinged room with big tables, a nice larfg darkwood bar and a view into their beer storage room. Nothing amazingly interesting or rare beerwise besides some locals but a great place and nice varied selection.

September 2009 - Cavernous and dark, we went here on a tip for dinner. The waitress was an idiot who didn’t know anything about beer and after I asked too many questions about some of the beers, they gave us a different one. The heary Irish food was delicious and the beers were fresh and unique. Definitely worth a visit at its easy-to-find location across from Christ Church.

Visited on a busy Friday night in May, then again a week later on a Ridiculously busy Heineken-cup-for-local-team-vs-England-rep football night, and the locals won. The first time we enjoyed some beer in the upstairs brew hall, packed tight with long benches and tables. The second we ate at the swankier restaurant downstairs, enjoying a tasty Beef and Guinness pie and an 8oz steak. Lots of new beers awaited us, there was a great selection of local and not-so-local brews, most of it in good condition. Service was good.

Dinner was pretty good. We had to wait for a table - it was jammed with people watching the ERC (Come on Leinster! ) My burger was very good after I halfed the amount of onion on it. Mabel’s beef stew with puff pastry on top was lovely even if they insist on calling it a "pie". (sorry, personal pet peeve - pies have a crust all round them imho, or at least underneath) I like the restaurant area a bit more than the upstairs beer hall area as it is cozier and has more character. First visit the barman upstairs was friendly, second visit the barmen were kinda dicks (to be fair they were busy with the crowd), wait staff was friendly but not super with it in terms of knowing the beer selection. Selection has a good range, but ordering things that were no longer in stock got frustrating. If you no longer carry a brew, maybe consider taking the huge sign over the bar saying that its on special down? Maybe? lol. Overall I enjoyed it, and probably would return

Bransmark  (12) Århus C, Denmark | April 10, 2009
One of the few good beer places in Dublin. Have some different Irish micros on tab and bottle. Service is alright but nothing special. Have a good international selection, but with emphasis on variaty rather than quality.

Fine selection, with IRish micros on draft and in bottles plus a good range of imports. This will be my first stop on my next visit to Dublin. The beer cellar is actually on the first floor, look in both bars, as they may have different micros available.
