Excellent live music makes this a lively and vibrant drinking hole to head for next time you're in the Temple Bar area. Good food too, and incredibly friendly staff.

I had a pleasant lunch here. Well prepared Irish mussels and a pint of Guiness. I paid 15€. Not exactly cheap but a fair price considering the decoration, the location, atmosphere, the food, and the live Irish music. Would definitely return and recommend.

Came looking for something to eat on a Sunday afternoon. Surprised how good the food was with good traditional music in the background. Very busy but staff manage to keep on top of things

Nice live music and great fish and chips! Atmosphere could be better but it's not bad. The main thing is that there are three levels and they all offer different things but it's NBD.

Spent a couple of afternoons here and what a great time we had. The atmosphere in what was a packed Monday afternoon was electric and as the Guinness flowed the day got better. Two old fellers were playing their guitars and singing Irish folk songs getting everyone singing along what a great place to be.

A good time can be had here. A little on the pricey side but the musicians (even on a Wednesday night) were great!

Service was poor at the bar. Barkeeper didn't let the Guinness stand/settle, and the band were awful. We walked another 100 yards and Temple Bar was perfect. There are so many choices, don't waste your time here.

We were looking for some traditional Irish food when we stumbled into this pub. The waitress quickly gave us an overview of traditional Irish cooking and recommended food for us. While we waited we received some Guiness and possibly the best oysters we ever had. Seriously; if you are looking for an oyster in Dublin, this is the place to... More
