Decent enough old spot, this. it’s homely enough but with enough banter to give the place an atmosphere. Full of office workers on their breaks, though. Still, I took a bird there for a date and it was nice... got the shift ;)

Very nice pub, definitely my favourite in the Temple Bar area. This was a safe haven from the touristy, overcrowded bars in the area. Delicios Porterhouse beer on tap and some guest beers. Wide selection of bottles, but not the most exciting selection in the city. Loud live music can be annoying if you’re not in the mood for it.

The place itself is nice, with a friendly staff and good people. The selection is good but I didn’t appreciate much. That’s not my stuff.

visited this place 3 times on our stop in Dublin simply because we enjoyed the beer and liked sitting in the small outside patio. Nice selection of beer and lots of other options from around the world although nothing crazy. Food and service were average as were the prices. One of the better beer options in Dublin.

Right in Temple Bar. Irish looks bar with a few unusual tap handles sporting some Irish craft beers which is always nice to find in this area of Dublin. They also offer their own beers which numbered six during my visit. Waiter was very helpful in answering my questions and making recommendations that is until shift change came and we got a rather inexperienced waitress whose errors in service seemed to aggravate more than just our table. Ambiance is what you get in Temple Bar district, many tourists with some locals. TV playing the foot ball game. Some live music during the evening. Food was my worse experience in Dublin as attested my two friends. Reminiscent of festival burgers that were cooked in the same fat that has been cooked over and over for the whole day. These were probably the greasiest burger I ever got with some of the worse fries. Bacon burger with a tiny shriveled slice of bacon, a slice of tomato, tiny cheap hard chunk of iceberg lettuce and a small piece of onion for just 11€50. Beers were average and only the stouts stood out.

Temple Bar location is convenient. Large enough that even when crowded it’s not bad. Better than expected, really, the service was friendly each time we were there and the stout range is excellent (Wrasslers and Oyster are both yum). A persistent craving for those kept us coming back again and again. For what it is, it’s really not a bad place to go drinking and you probably won’t find a better stout range in the city.

The micro-brew trend hasn’t quite taken off in Ireland yet, but this place is off to a great start. Consistently good-great beers and a lot of passion for making them turn this place into a must-see for anyone interested in Ireland’s brewing scene. Decent prices for Dublin. More importantly, decent creativity with the brews! Not every beer will be a winner but tasting them is a lot of fun.

Not a bad place as I recall although not great. Was pretty busy even for a Tuesday night & was rather expensive like most places in Dublin.
