Our taxi driver said this is one of the oldest pubs in Dublin. The entance way was of stone. the small rooms were like some other pubs we visited. There was an outside area for warmer weather. We visited in March. Limited beer offerings to the standard taps for Guinness, Budwiser, Bulmers (hard cider) and Carlsberg.

Not the beergeeky place you’re looking for. But the oldest pub in Ireland got its charms. Food looked really great :p I recommend going over there for a quick beer at night.

Stopped here for lunch, so it was not very crowded or full of tourists. The food was good but it didn’t seem like a place to spend an evening.

We went here for a storyteller dinner. We listened to tales of Irish history and fairies and some classic Irish folk music. The food was pretty tyical Irish fare. The beer selection wasn’t extensive but adequate. The pub itself is very cozy. It is a nice place but too crowded. If you’re in Dublin, I reccomend going so you can have a pint at the oldest pub in Ireland but you probably won’t want to stay long.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon in October; sat in the main bar area. It is a unique establishment with outside seating available. It has a cozy feel to it and the barkeep was attentive and relatively quick. Tyipcal selection of brews for an Dublin pub. Cool bit of history and worth a stop in to say you have been; probably not a night long session.

Wonder why... I had a stew which was ok, and a pint of something something. After I was done, I got out and had another pint somewhere else. No beer bar at all and for an old place it’looks fine, but it was too loud inside and (imo) too touristic.

A very cool bar if tourists are absent. The selection is typical Irish brews. Go on the off season ;-)

First of all, this is a tourist trap. "Oh, wow, we are the oldest pub in Dublin!". Even for tourists: nice to walk by, have 1 beer and go! For the beerlover: I really think this shouldn’t even be on ratebeer. They have like 6 taps and all macro brewed.
