Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Thought this might be overrated but was a highlight of our trip. Two pints of guinness was around €16 but we got a great seat in front of the stage and the singer/guitarist was so talented and entertaining. Can only imagine there’s an audition process for playing there. The interior was also so interesting to look at and a brilliant atmosphere. Was supposed to be moving to another bar I wanted to go to most in all of Dublin but was having such a good time stayed for the second half of their set and had a hot whiskey and irish coffee. Absolutely fab. Don’t miss it.

    Lovely pub off the main strip. Great Guinness and friendly bar staff even for us englishmen. Was a spot various nationalities were visiting, some German lads came in for a pint of Guinness and were blown away.

    We attended a Folklore and Fairies event at the Stag’s Head. They pour a perfect pint of Guinness and magically transported it upstairs for us without spilling a single drop. The staff was friendly and helpful and the ambiance was exactly what we were hoping for. We loved the roundabout hidden feel to the entrance as well which made it feel like we stumbled upon a treasure.

    We sat next to the stage, more to follow!!!! The food and service were fine. Don't expect a 5 star meal, they are feeding a huge room all at once. The show wss great. Singers and dancers!!!!!! One danced on our table.

    A great spot to hear authentic Irish music on their 2nd floor. While it is in the Temple area which is known for tourist prices on drinks and food, the music was worth it.

    Had a memorable night with charming regulars and welcoming barmaid. Very special place worth a detour any time. Very close to Abbey Theatre.

    Great place where to experience a real Irish vibe. Musicians there are fabulous! Typical Irish music, not turistic at all. I really enjoyed my stay there!

    Came here to watch Joe Lycett. Small intimate venue which was packed out. Friendly staff, clean toilets and drinks not over priced

    Nice atmosphere, old fashioned but beautifull pub where you can enjoy a nice talk and a good pint with friends. Service is very friendly. Worth visiting!

    I have been to the laughter lounge quite a few times, and every time I have enjoyed it a lot. It became a place I bring friends to when they're visiting me too.

    I was recommended this place and I wasn't disappointed. Had bangers and mash (which was excellent) and a couple of lovely Guinness. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    The building is what attracted us. We finished our 2 week driving vacation of Ireland in Dublin. We stayed in the Stevens Green area, so we saw a variety of restaurants, pubs, etc.
    By pure accident we passed by the Bank and after looking at the wonderful interior of the building we decided to give it a try and were very happy we did. My wife claimed it was the best fish ( and chips) she had on our whole trip ( she tried many) and it was certainly my favourite steak. The fish chowder was the best or at least equal to 3 other seafood chowders we had during our trip around Ireland and Scotland. God, there fish/seafood chowders are delicious in both countries.
