Their beers are not as good as I expected. Good international selection but too small. Too turistic.

Nice pub, pretty good selection of world beers and a selection of their own beers which are not too bad. Decent food available also.

Decent enough modern bar, their own beer is usually quite good. Good but not brilliant.

Beer tasting available. In the area of temple bar. Nice location over several levels. Interesting stage for bands. Good beers on and selection is very good including the bottles. Craig can be mighty here! Prices are pretty high though and food is in busy times pretty generic. Good service though with a good sense of humour.

Great Dublin pub wide selection. Did a sampler plus . Lots of nice selections plus decent world wide bottles. Service was fine did not try food. Was a large drum set set up but no band. Nice multiple floor setup.

What could be worse than 3 floors of generic Irish bar in Temple Bar where you’re dealing with hundreds of tourists--Irish and otherwise. The beer is lackluster to be generous...if you can get one. Stay away and find an old man bar brightly lit with no music serving a real pint.

This was first pub we visited and one of the best for the week long trip to Ireland. Grat service even though it was packed on Saturday night 3 March. Their beers were all above average. The Plain had the most creamy head in Ireland. The afterwork platter was more food than four could consume. The prices were the best we experienced. This is a treasue when visiting Dublin.

Cool place to hang out. Nice selection of their own beers. Food (burgers) are ok. Prices are ok. Must visit in Ireland.

One of the original craft beer haunts in Dublin, and still one of the best. Their own range of brews is pretty impressive with 3 ales, 3 lagers, & 3 stouts on tap at all times; several of their seasonal specials on too - would recommend both the hophead (USA inspired pale ale) and the Bohemia (dark lager brewed with pilsner urquell yeast) that are on tap now. All of their pints are under a fiver too. Ask for a bottle of their barrel-aged imperial stout - best thing an Irish brewer has done in a while! Bottle range is decent (I'd guess around 100 bottles from around the world) and prices aren't too bad for the most part. Food is tasty, but don't be expecting haut cuisine...burgers, stews etc. again, prices are fair given its great location. Staff are a good laugh too when they aren't rushed off their feet - yes, it gets busy pretty quickly! Definitely worth a visit if you're around temple bar!
