Been with a group of friends and this Pub rocks. Super band on Friday nights, I think their name is The Usual Suspects - they just create the atmosphere you would expect for good music, fun and late night. The place is large, nice and...More

A surprisingly good burger in Dublin. They have a huge selection of beers and a fun atmosphere. Definitely worth stopping for a beer and a bite.

I'm sure this is the only pub in Dublin that does not pour Guinness! Their house brews were very nice. Place is a bit skimpy on atmosphere considering the location and service is spotty.

Although we arrived at the peak of the dinner hour, we were quickly seated. There is a fairly high noise level, so this would not be a good place for folks who like a quiet dinner. Our drink orders were quickly taken and the drinks...More
