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!

By far my favorite ícraft beerí 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.

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.

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. Iíd like to go back at a better time and sample some more, but itís a decent place to stop in.

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.

I was there on a slow night, and yet the service wasnít very fast. This isnít such a big deal though. I liked the place anyway. It has a big beerhall upstairs with plenty of seats. Itís 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.
