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.

Our service was very slow here. They do have a decent selection of beers, but nothing out of this world. they claim to have the best stout in the world and it actually is "porter style" and the ratings are average at best. I agree with this. The food was pretty good. It is in a good location. The samplers are decent sized.

Great character bar on several floors with lots of wooden staircases. Solid tap selection. Very busy though and finding a seat was impossible. Same story at most Dublin pubs tho!

Have visited a couple of times when in Dublin, most recently Feb 2015. I’m not a fan of the G word so this place offers a great and wide ranging alternative when in Dublin. Tap and bottle range is very good. Service ok. Food was pretty good. One to visit.

Ambiance should be an 11. This is a chain pub but in Dublin you can be that and not be Applebees. Fun place where the music and atmosphere make up for the fact that the beer is made for middle-aged tourists
