This place is a joke. They try to give the impression of a serious beer bar stripped from mainstream beers. That’s at least what they write themselves in the menu. The sad truth though is a beer menu stuffed with beers like Corrs Light, Corona, Sol, Heineken and Miiller…. The personal is pretty much incompetent when it comes to specialty beers and when given advice in a friendly manner, on how to serve, keep and handle beer, they act insulted. No proper glassware and the beers are served way to cold. When my mate and I last visited the place we got kicked out because we bought 5 beers each in order to heat the ice cold beers up. That was apparently out of order… As I started of, this place is a joke and a complete waste of time for the serious connaisseur.

Tenían más de 100 botellas y sus 12 surtidores eran de cervezas propias; era como un oasis entre todos los surtidores de Guinness, Bulmers, y demás Lagers malolientes del resto de garitos. Encima tenían la Seasca Bliain, una IPA Cask, muy diferente a las IPAs actuales, pero que desprendía magia; su mítica Celebration Stout, la agresiva Brainblásta, la Oyster Stout o su Bitter eran clasicazos. El pub es precioso, 3 pisos a diferentes niveles con los fermentadores antiguos de cobre en impoluto estado y forrado de vitrinas llenas de botellas vacías, música en directo, etc. Para mí es, sin duda, un pub especial, y encima la comida es buena.

I ordered a beer from the large bar up front but then discovered the tiny bar in the next room that connects to the main bar. Just six barstools at a U-shaped bar, but service was more personal and you're away from the crowds. Enjoyed chatting about world travls with a Polish guy and his 13 year old son. Beer list is smaller than the Central location, food is about the same. Easily skipped.

Atmospheric old place right in the town center. Thousands of (mostly empty) bottles lining the wall, some of them real antiques. The wife and I had dinner and shared a flight of 6. Service was friendly. Food was good. A good stop.

Popped in shortly after opening time to avoid the crowds. Lots of dark wooden panelling, lots of tables to sit at, nice and mellow atmosphere. Had a quick three porter flight for 6 Euros which is reasonable. The quality of beer is about average, the oyster stout being the noticeable standout. Friendly bar staff as well. Recommended.

Stopped for a quick beer in the afternoon to avoid the evening crowds. Friendly and quick service, decent selection of Irish/foreign beers and enjoyed my time there.

Visited in August 2016. Wood-laden bar/club in the party area of the city. A very lively spot with (I think) two separate bars on two levels. Lovely, well designed interior, lots of people and quite good beers. A bit like the Temple Bar but slightly less party-centered less tourist-trappy and with better beer. Go there by all means if in the area.

The classic and original winding bar climbing up around a central bar. The place that first dared to make and sell Irish (as opposed to US or English or Russian) stouts and porters and the place to drink the Plain (porter), Oyster and XXXX flight, ideally by the pint. Lots of other Irish craft beers for visitors to Ireland and a decent array of imports for locals. Frequent live music. Technically within Temple Bar, just, but don’t let that put you off.

This place is absolutely beautiful, interior itself is worth a visit. During our visit there was a live concert, very nice and not overwhelming like some live music could be. Just a part of the great climate of Irish pub. Porterhouse beers were good, likewise beers from other breweries. The best place on this part of Dublin.

Came here on 25.5.2017. Nice pub, not too far away from Temple bar. On the first floor they had live music. The beer selection was quite good. One beer from the hand pump and at least 8 other good craft beers on tap. Also a decent bottle selection. Nice interior.
