The place was packed when I was there because of some running event. So it was really noise. Two levels, upstairs only sitting area. Most of the taps serve the Galway Bay beers as this is one of their bars. Guest taps and bottles provide a really good addiion and an overall good selection.
For sure best selection in town with sour , lager , Ales and stout well selected.. good to see local craft beers here ..fair prices .. service with no frills but in a good way ..maybe they should serve their craft lager in a different way but ... good place thanks to exist in the Guinness dome!!
Not a particularly cosy place, but possibly the best beer selection in Dublin. Visited twice, the first night the place was pretty crowded and smelled like urine (or something like it), the second time (in the daytime) the smell was gone. Very decent range of beers on tap.
Big bar near the river and the hostel filled gardiner Street. Service is ok, they seem to always recommend the galway beers first, which is a normal phenomenon with sponsored bars like this (even though saying that their DIPA is better than the Cloudwater is ridiculous in my opinion). 20+ taps with a few really interesting ones, for example they had two founders on tap when I was there. But also some really boring ones. Prices are quite expensive, but normal for Dublin. They do flights, but only for their galway beers.
Came here on 25.5.2017. This brewpub most likely has one of the best craft beer selections in Dublin. 25 beers including 1 hand pump and a few international beers. A good mix of sour, stouts, pale ales and some other styles. Also the bottle selection is quite interesting. The interior is very mediocre: some beer plates on the walls, other than that very soulless. Had a burger which was ok. Prices are very reasonable.
Close to the river, this is probably the top craft bar in Dublin. They have 24 quality taps from mainly the UK and Ireland and a handful of bottles. Passionate knowledgeable staff and working wifi. A tickers paradise!

Easy to find pub directly opposite of one of the main bus stations (Connolly station) where you can get a bus to, among others, Northern Ireland. Friendly staff, good wide selection of interesting beers on tap. You can get a small sample if you want to try a beer before placing your order. Old interior, simple bar. Bottle selection didn’t appear to have a lot of small or local breweries, but I didn’t really check that out very well. Nice place, definitely worth a visit.
Un très bon bar surtout à 100m de notre auberge de jeunesse qui permet de passer de bonnes soirées sans marcher jusqu’au centre ville de Dublin. Le choix est énorme avec plus de 20 tireuses. Des prix tout à fait acceptables même si le barman a ses humeurs on hésite pas à sortir un billet pour déguster du bon craft entre amis! Mikkeller et beavertown recommandées!
Nice place. It’s simpler than most Galway bars. There is a kind of harbour appearance; simple but efficient. The place has a nice selection of beers, just like all the Galway bars. The calamari where great. They serve delicious fingerfood, that is a great pairing with their nice beers. I truly love the Galway Bay places and their beers. I loved the fact that the place had a cabinet filled with boardgames, to play in the bar. Great.
