Plenty of Victorian decor and the best pint of Guinness I have had in 3 days in Dublin. Also a nice seating area outside.

I've been coming here for years (15, 20 years?) and thankfully it hasn't changed. I come in here about once a year, and usually have a Guinness and a sandwich (the salmon and the roast beef sandwiches are my favourites). It's usually lunchtime when I'm...More
