First visited here in the summer of 1998 on the reccomendation of a non beer geek cousin of mine who lived in Dublin at the time. Have been back a number of times since, most recently Aug í11. Back in the day Messrs Maguire and here were the only places to get a beer in Dublin that wasnít Guinness or mainstream lager so it was a breath of fresh air! Split level pub with lots of glass, tiles and copper, bars on a few levels. Always crowded of an evening - donít expect to get a seat if you show up after 5pm! Service is OK and copes with the crowds, a little more local/office types than tourists due to it being on the far end of Temple Bar, but yo do still get a fair smattering of the latter. Range is Porterhouse plus 100 or so bottles. Worth stopping by on a visit to Dublin.

stayed in dublin for 2 days and this was the best bar we found. good food, nice atmosphere and good selection of food. the beer was good and the choice was great. the oak aged celebration stout was by far the best here.

Absolutely fantastic place in Temple Bar. Nice decor of copper and beer bottles. Highly crowded in evenings. Nice tap selection, bottle selection is also good. Place to visit when you are in Dublin.

Went a few years back, loved the place, best beer bar in town, although there isnít many (maybe itís changed) The Oyster Stout was my favourite beer, blew Guinness away!

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.
