One of Dublin`s landmark pubs in the heart of Drumcondra sadly in need of open heart surgery from the Upholsterer and the Decorator. The Bar Stools must have a preservation order on them as they are threadbare there is more cloth in the Shroud of Turin than on these seats. A closer look and you might see the Last Dinner... More

Carvery plenty of food but quality wasn't great. The pub has a nice atmosphere and the staff are friendly but the food could be a lot better - nothing wrong with it cooked well just didn't have the right quality about it for me

Jet lagged, we walked into Fagan's last Tuesday and had a wonderful lunch of lamb stew with mashed potatoes and carrots on the side. The staff was welcoming in such a fashion, we ate there the three nights that we were in Dublin. A varied menu sure to delight anyone.

Every time I visit Dublin I eat here. My recent visit was typical with an excellent lunch. You get the option of a full or half size meal, I always find the smaller option to be very filling. There is a good choice of meals. Also I have to say that my last glass of Guinness was the best I've... More

Visited recently with family and friends around 6pm one evening. When we arrived most tables had reserved signs on them so we were told we would only have a table until 8pm. We felt like we were...

Dropped in for Sunday lunch when up for a game in Croke Park. There were quite a few diners in the place, including locals. The food selection was good with roast beef, bacon & cabbage, roast turkey breast, deep fried sea-bass and lasagna on offer. The vegetable choices were also extensive. The server was generous with his portions! Food was... More

We only popped in for a drink before the match. But overall, there was a great atmosphere, the waiters and waitresses were beyond helpful and the venue is centrally located and close to everything without being too busy! Perfect to call in here before a visit to Croker!

Spent a few nights in Dublin staying just outside of the city center. Had a lovely dinner at Fagan's where there is good craic and terrific service. The seafood chowder and fresh fish dinner are delicious. Good place for a few pints too. You won't be disappointed and this place is off the tourist-path so no worries about being a... More
