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
