Totally unique to the area. The atmosphere has brighter lighting compared to most pubs. The bar has ample seating and is great for a drink. Very large venue and the high ceilings and cool chandeliers make this a photo stop!

Just off Grafton Street this will eventually be on a tram route and the current work goes right past it. It is worth walking off the beaten path. The interior is breathtakingly beautiful. The coffee great, an amazing spirits and drinks choice.

This place definitely has the wow factor. I read about cafe en seine previous to my visit to Dublin and luckily stumbled across it whilst being there - and I am soooo glad we did!

One of those places that people go into just to look around and take photos! Beautiful decor - think end of 19th century Parisian. Called in just for cake and coffee, ended up with drinks and listening to the jazz trio playing during Sunday brunch.

Duriong the day it is always nice to go for a drink in this pub. The coffee is OK. The real plus of this huge pub is its art deco setting. It is reallt beatyful and it has a very quiet and cosy vibe... Just relax in one of their leather armchairs and enjoy a quiet tchat with you friends... More
