Off Grafton Street, Davy Byrnes is a charming restaurant with good service and delicious food. Fish and Chips were above the norm and the soup and sandwich I had were very good.

Davy Byrne's is just off Grafton Street. It's a great pub with huge historical significance as Dublin's famous literature stars used to meet here. Art Nouveau in design. Worth visiting.

I'd recommend Davy Byrnes for anyone looking for a peaceful break from the crowds. The staff are really good and the prices are very reasonable for the city centre.

As a group of friends we met up here at lunchtime and enjoyed our snack lunches all washed down with some great Guinness and lagers. The service was good with a nice atmosphere.
