One of the better local bars, always a good warm atmosphere. Great range of ales, genuine Irish hospitality. Well worth a visit.

One of Dublin's finest pubs. It's small enough, but you can sit or stand outside on a nice warm summers day. One of the best pints of Guinness you'll find in Dublin.

Kehoes is a Dublin pub as a Dublin pub should be, full of locals and atmosphere, and with Guinness as good as it gets, which for a city centre pub is reasonably priced too. It's a great place to see how the locals unwind. The hidden gem is the snug. Seek it out and if you're very lucky it might... More

Just a very friendly place to have a drink and meet people. We were made very welcome by the Barstaff and didn't even need to ask for more drinks after a while as they would practically have it waiting for you.

Nice "local" bar, good buzz, and really good Guinness despite what other reviews said. Good efficient bar staff.

Pub hasn't been touched in 20 years, a place where people drink on the side street and the police turn a blind eye. Toilets are in the basement they are very small and not kept clean. For some unknown reason it is a popular pub, with patrons packet like sardines inside, how they would get out in an emergency is... More

This place is popular with students and bearded folk. It is usually very busy and most people have to stand. my overall impression is of smelly drains and unwashed bodies. Using the facilities requires a spirit of adventure and a strong stomach. The drink is much the same as any other Dublin pub where quality control is carried out by... More

Possibly one of my favourite bars in Dublin with a chilled atmosphere. It's not swamped with tourists, it offers an amazing pint of Guinness, has a world class whiskey selection, boasts very friendly staff and has a great craic. I've visited during the week when there are a few people milling about with a pint or two, and visited on... More

Fantastic pint of Guinness in Kehoes, one of the best in Dublin in my experience. It's well known among locals, as can be seen by the big after work crowd in the early evening and the throngs that pack the place every evening. Loads of character and a great vibe. Just off Grafton St, it's a smashing pub. Highly recommended.

We had a drink here before dinner this weekend. We went in the front door and couldn't find space downstairs or upstairs so we went around to the side door and were able to find some space right at the back. There was a good atmosphere but it was just a little bit too packed for my liking.

Thank Beanie14
