One year ago, I had no idea about where I was, but I saw this pub and decided to go into it. Strong smell of beer, drunk and funny people.

A great pub with a lovely pint. Nothing much else to be said, just head and spend a few hours unwinding in the city centre.

Friendly staff no food unless you like peanut and Chrips. Dublin basic diet. It's a place for over 30yrs . No tv that explains everything! Ps. Don't listen to the local guide, listen to the guy and girl on holiday's... keep Smiling.

This place is great to get the "real" news of Dublin. James Joyce took several "snapshots" from here to almost every single book he had wrote. Forget "Ulysses". Try to read "The Dublinners" before went there.
