Visited in November 2000 and loved it. Great location and broad selection of brews, as I recall. <<Revisited in September 2009. Still a cool little brewpub, right on the banks of the Liffey with a good view if you can get a seat by the window. Tasty brews.>>

A centrally located brewpub with a small selection of house beers, a few of which were good and a few of which were disappointing. Good place to watch sports, the screens are large and plentiful.

(Visited 11/2012): Messrs Maguire is located near the OíConnell bridge on the Burgh Quay. Not far from public transportation.
The inside features snugs with high table seating and the bar is on the left. Brewing equipment is visible right by the entrance. Wood and a white tile ceiling.
This brewpub has 5-6 of their beers on draught, and offers them in a sampler. On our visit these included a Dunkel, Weiss, Bock and Irish Ale. The beers are fairly middling all around.
Service at the bar on our visit was pretty good.
We did not try any food on our visit.
Overall I donít think this is the best brewpub in Dublin but given the dearth of them in Ireland in general I was glad to get to try their stuff.

Just off the OíConnell Bridge, this is a multi-tiered brewpub serving traditional Irish food. Beers were well-done and food servings were well-priced and well-made. The Export Stout was my favourite beer from Ireland and is worth seeking out. Staff were inattentive at best when I was there, but donít let it detract you from this place... itís worth visiting.

Beers were decent, though not super exciting. I liked the Irish Red Ale. We were there in the afternoon, so it was rather slow and relaxing. I quite enjoyed myself. The architecture is really fascinating.

A huge place with lots of twists and turns - almost no punters though when I visited on a Wednesday afternoon. Mainly made of wood with some easy brown leather chairs and a huge open floor in front of the bar. 5 own beers on draft - a bit of a disappointment to me - especially because only one was unknown to me, and having a bottled cider didnít lift my spirit too much either, so donít expect lots of ratings if youíve had Messrs. Maguire beers before.

The beers were rather boring, the staff were mostly concerned with playing cards with each other. Quiet in the early evening.

Brewepub / bar with a nice Victorian style inside.
Went there on two occasions, once it was near empty around lunch time, and the other it was jam packed during a UK football game.
I guess you can have the either very alive and noisy sports/bar atmosphere or a more serene and quiet one depending of the time of visit.
On both occasions, the food was nothing special. A British/Irish grub with a lot of American inspirations.
My steak sandwich pepper sauce was uninspired with a sauce that tasted like it was straight out of the ready to make pack as was the whiskey sauce that my friend had.
Burgers were simple as were the fries in very British fashion, chips chunk with not much crunch.
Service could be better, never really got a smile out of the staff or that they even looked happy to be there, beer questions seemed to be a bit too much to ask.
Their beers were average lagers that you expect from Ireland and only the stout and brown stood out. They had six of their beers on draft and the rest is just the typical Irish pub beers from Bud to Guinness.
Value is overpriced for the food quality. Beer is like the rest of Dublin, pricey for the quality that you get.
I must mention that Messrs. pints were 4Ä and cheaper than any other pints available in town. A good way to support local brews.

Stopped in for a sampler tray in the early afternoon. Was charmed from the start by the multi-level layout, nice view out the windows of the river. Server was friendly enough, didnít really see anyone around after that but were not looking either. Did not eat but the lunch downstairs looked decent. I suspect that this is a place that fills up a lot in the evenings, but I enjoyed a quiet empty afternoon stop a fair bit. Beers were all okay, but none particularly wowed me.
