Iíll prefix this review by saying that I used to head up the beer department here and am still a good customer of the place. However, Iím being as objective as possible in this review - Iím not one for giving out bogus good praise, I just want this place to get a bit more recognition as it often flies under the radar. Probus is an odd little place: itís a bottle shop with a full bar licence that serves homemade food of all descriptions. Itís one of a kind in Dublin, and a bit mad to tell the truth. Beerwise, things are improving rapidly: during my time working here I busted my arse trying to establish connections with reps and breweries in order to be taken seriously as a beer destination. It seems to have worked, as since Iíve left the selection as continued to improve. Thereís three fridges of high quality offerings: one fridge devoted to Irish craft beer, and the other two to (mostly) world class imports. Was in here yesterday and they had a decent range of Thornbridge, Mikkeller, Nogne O, BrewDog, plenty of Trappist ales, and some of the more usual suspects. Not bad at all - the selection is constantly changing too, which can be annoying but it keeps things fresh for sure. Prices are decent, and for a 10% surcharge you can drink the bottles on the premises - unbeatable value, literally half the price of most of the craft pubs in the city. Good glassware selection too. The place is small, with seating for ten-fifteen people around wooden barrel tables. The food is actually great - Paul (the owner) is a chef by trade and used to work in a Michelin starred restaurant, so he knows what heís doing. Mostly high quality gourmet sandwiches, soups, casseroles, stews etc. Lots of great Irish cheese on offer. Well worth a look in if you fancy something a bit different from the other craft beer joints in the city. Beer tastings are run every Thursday and Saturday evening too. There you go, thatís as objective as I can be folks!

Itís an off-licence AND a deli of sorts, nice sandwiches and cheeseboards etc that you can have along with beer or wine of your choosing. Be warned, the sandwich/food service is EXTREMELY slow (albiet tasty) Not a bad selection of craft beers, one of Dublinís better ones for sure. Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Will order specific beers for you if they can. A great addition to the area. They also do beer tastings which you can book through their facebook page.
