My friends and I love this place! We first discovered it during our trip to Ireland in 2015 and came back the year after. The food is tasty and the staff is great. When we spontaneously treated one of our friends to a birthday dinner, they managed to organize a sparkler and generally made us feel like we were celebrating... More

Good pub grub at a reasonable price. Limited menu. Great location just off Grafton Street. Staff very helpful and friendly. Convenient place to meet friends.

Visited for a drink and ended up staying for dinner. Great modern Irish atmosphere and fantastic service. My friend and I chose the Guinness and Steak Pie - Meat was soft and tender and accompanying vegetable and mash were filled with flavour. Un-rushed, attentive service. Brilliant option for a relaxed informal, well cooked meal or a quiet drink.

We often pop in here after shopping as it's really central but very peaceful and never too packed. We just had one drink on Friday after work but it was a nice way to unwind after a long week.

Wandering the streets of Dublin looking confused, a young man stopped us and asked if we needed directions. When we explained that we were hungry, he directed us here and offered that the Irish Stew would change our lives. It certainly changed our attitudes! Delicious stew and fish and chips. Excellent friendly staff and a comfortable place to sit. Pub-style... More

I ordered a white wine which was ice cold really dry and the waiter found out the name of it for me Peter Lehmann's Australian chardonnay. My husband ordered a pint of Guinness which was divine...like velvet. Our dinner arrived and it was gorgeous really tasty. The... More
