It was our first night in Dublin on a tour and we ate here. They had a litle entertainment to welcome us and the food was delicious plus the beer was cold. A great way to kick off our Ireland Tour

We stopped in for a beer. Ended up having meatballs and also the seafood chowder from the appetizer menu. Both were really good. Great little atmosphere and good staff. I’d go back.

Came here on our first night in Dublin and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff are very professional and attentive and the food is lovely. I highly recommend it, especially if you are staying at The Ashling Hotel a few doors down

Dublin Airport us approx 15 to 20 minutes away by Taxi but this of course is highly dependent on the time of day. At rush hour it is a lottery but by evening time it's much easier to get about Dublin.
