A gastropub of true quality in the North central part of the city.
Plenty of local and international brews on tap (normally between 15 and 20 kegs pouring and one or two cask items). Large selection of bottled beer, although at high prices. Beer menus are often a bit infuriating as they list rarities that just arenít there (donít say youíve got Cantillon Gueuze if it hasnít been in stock for months!), however, thatís only a small gripe.
Food is delicious, high quality local fare - but again at a premium price that seems to be ever increasing given the critical acclaim this place has (rightfully) gained over recent months.
Service is first class: all staff members are friendly, trained fully and knowledgeable about everything on offer - great to see.
This is a real all rounder of a place, although itís certainly become more of an eating venue than a boozer over recent times. Itís always packed to the rafters too, so itís necessary to book unless youíre going in for a solo pint in the bar area.
LMG is first class, no doubt about it.

Great spot, fantastic line up, staff are great, lovely food menu (albeit expensive) and a lot of nice touches around the pub, I adored the pencil case/mathematical case the bill came in and the 10 penny bags instead of mints.

Probably one of my favourite pubs in the world... and thatís saying something! A huge range of Irish craft beer, staff who enthuse about it, great food and an undefinable feel that they really care about what they do makes this the essential stop in Dublin for beer lovers... and, with drinkstore.ie almost across the street, itís win-win all round. Buses 37 or 39 from Aston Quay (close to Messrs) to directly outside.

Visited on 30th September 2011. Pub well worth the effort of finding. Long, narrow pub with table seating and partitioned bar. Service prompt and friendly. Probably the best range of different Irish beers during my short stay in Dublin. Alongside quite a few OíHaraís keg ales and stout, at least two cask ales on handpump. Food good and reasonable value - try the sausages and mash. Note the unusual way food menus are presented - in old books! When I arrived it looked as if a reading club had descended on the pub! Would visit again when next in Dublin.

since the written beer menu was outdated the tender was kind enough to point out all the new arrivals.

Old school bar with a neomodern theme. craft beer! Really good selection of craft beer both on tap and in bottles. and a tasty food menu too. Staff are great. Friendly and know their stuff. If in the area, definitely a place to check out. Donít let the outside fool you, itís a crackin little boozer!!!

Just down the road, opposite side of the street from The Drink Store. Has a selection of Irish craft beers that matches Bull and Castle, and a bottle selection that seems to come straight from The Drink Stor, meaning loads of US microbrews, some of which I have never seen before. Food was alright, and the environment slow and relaxed.
