A brilliant pub, slightly out of the way. An old traditional pub with a great range of local beers and of course, a great pint of Guinness. Two bars one upstairs and one down. Had sky sports on during early afternoon but without any sound which was a plus.

Nice, cosy, traditional style pub just across from the CCD. Friendly service. Near Christmas so music was festive, along with the outfits of many of the customers. Not a huge amount of seating but we had no problem getting a table. Music not so loud you couldn't talk as well.

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Dublin, The Ferryman ticks all the boxes. It's location on the Quay is ideal. The centre of Dublin is a short walk away. It is close to the theatre and the city tour buses go right by the front door. It is a genuine Dublin pub, not an Irish... More

As my 21 year old friend and I (also 21) promptly left a concert held at the 3 Arena a few locals recommended we stop here for a drink. I would maybe reconsider. Both of us corkgirls from a small town thought nothing stopping for a drink in a more casual bar. However, if getting stares from customers wasn't enough... More

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights. The room was spotless and pretty comfortable. Breakfast was good and the staff down at the bar were very friendly. Even after the bar closed they invited us to stay for another drink. Even though it's not on the center of town it's a great little place to stay.

While staying in Dublin 2 mins from this pub we had to visit! Great Irish bar! Few of my girlfriends were Guinness virgins but not anymore! Had a few pints in here and really enjoyed the atmosphere! Tried to go in again a few times but always packed! Highly recommend:) 😀

Visited sat morning ahead of all Ireland football game.First pint in Dublin, woman behind bar dropped Guiness all over me. Was a complete accident, however threw me a tea towel to clean myself. No offer of dry clean and not even a drink on the house. Really insincere people only wanting to make a buck out of the tourist. Oh... More
