This is a must visit for any pub lover and music lover. The history in this place and the overall atmosphere is great (maybe less so for a native as they know similar places throughout Ireland...but as a visitor...with limited time...why not go to the place with history thatís easy to find?). The night we were there we heard a great live jam session of traditonal music and met some really fun tourists like ourselves...they were from the Netherlands and enjoyed the place as muchg as we did. The Guinness was certainly good there.

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 youíre 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 didnít 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 wasnít extensive but adequate. The pub itself is very cozy. It is a nice place but too crowded. If youíre in Dublin, I reccomend going so you can have a pint at the oldest pub in Ireland but you probably wonít 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.
