A great little brew pub which I stumbled across entirely by coincidence when walking along the river between train stations. A charecterful pub with seating on different floors and of different types. Its crowning glory is of course that it is a brew pub, with the gleaming metal vessels taking pride of place in the window area. On my visit I met the brewster who happily answered my questions despite being on her lunch-break. A sandwich counter making bespoke creations and a hot food counter with a daily menu.
The beers themselves will have been reviewed elsewhere but there is a good range of styles and strengths available.
I look forward to my next visit to Dublin specifically to visit this pub!

This the second Brewpub visited on the Liffy river near the OíConnell bridge. The waiter was very friendly and we enoyed the sampler tray of their beers. I was able to get a tour of the brewing operation. It was a very compact operation in limited space. We did not have food at this pub. Highly recommended for people looking for more than Guinness.

Visited this place twice. Once in 2000 and recently this summer 2005. Cool brewpub looking out over the River Liffey just off OíConnell St. Good Irish fare (as good as it gets anyway). Their house brews are delicious. Great place to hang out.

A place where they have 5 home-brewed beers, always scores good points when it comes to selection. Itís really cheap to taste all of those beers. The guy behind the bar was a really friendly guy, who showed us around the brewery as well. Got to sample a new stout that wasnít bottled yet. Great place. Must visit!!

A massive, three story pub, that somehow keeps its charm from floor to floor, barman to barmaid. Iím quite surprised to see the generally negative attitude towards Messrs. Maguire as I found it to be a clear highlight of the Dublin pub scene. A young crowd shares the many corners and tables of this venue, discerning better beer and conversation. The beer itself remains a prop, tolerable but far superior to the common set of taps - a highly drinkable product that comes in many equally enjoyable flavors. The food was surprisingly tasty on both nights I ate, though my steak was substantially overcooked. The perfect place to chat with a very good friend.

House brews were ok but I was expecting a bit better. Service was good and the place seemed friendly enough. Worth a visit if in Dublin.

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.

Great prices for Dublin and some decent craft beers. I stop by every once in awhile for some "comfort" beer. Itís nothing too exciting but very consistent (and not bad). The service depends on when you are there and if you get a chance to talk to the owner/brewer then youíll have a great time. If youíre just served by the staff then this probably wonít be your favorite place.

Visited on a quiet Friday afternoon in May, they were playing lots of bouncy dance music that I enjoyed. Itís a beautiful old mansion-like home with lots of stairs going to several levels and nooks and crannies to be open with friends or tucked away in a crevice. Everything seems to be made of wood or has wood decorations, and there are lots of comfortable chairs and big windows overlooking the busy street and bridge across the river below. Five of their own brews were on tap, all fairly palatable and good. We didnít try any food. The service was really friendly and brought our samples up to the second floor and let us be for a while. Nice place, glad we stopped here.
