There are 2 areas of this restaurant, the main restaurant on the ground level and a pub type restaurant with a smaller menu upstairs. it was unclear even after talking to the host what food was offered in which. We chose upstairs as we were not looking for a heavy meal. The service was very poor - we had to flag down a server every time for a beverage, menu, to take our order etc. Finally, the manager stepped in to help. The staff are poorly trained - they walk right by tables without looking at their customers to find out if they need something. The food was just "ok".

We visited the Bull & Castle twice during our visit to Dublin. Both times, we had not reserved a table, but were seated immediately at the bar. Dan, the bartender, was friendly and attentive, and helped us with drink selections and ordering steaks. The steaks were delicious, tender and flavorful, with a nice selection of sauce options. We also ordered sides of broccoli (al dente, Dan warned us) and spinach with bacon. When neither had arrived as we were halfway through our steaks, Dan apologized profusely, and covered the cost for us. On the second night, one of our steaks was not quite as good as usual, and we were comped a dessert. I had also left a cap on the first visit, and they kindly returned it to me on our second. We will definitely return on our next visit to Dublin -- worth the slightly higher prices.

We came at 12:30 on a Saturday and managed to get a table. The bar has a wonderful atmosphere upstairs, very lively, especially when there is live sport on - then downstairs you have a quieter restaurant. Had a great afternoon here.
