Do not expect quick service. The bar is crowded and you are lucky to get a seat. But it is worth it to grab a beer by the bar and just experience the old decor and look.

Only had 1 guiness here with family but what a venue, mahogany booths ( you'd need to be early to snag these), great stained glass, tiles and woodwork everywhere. Guiness was good too.

Yes, it had street access but not sure if there is wheelchair access to the booths. Take her anyway as it’s lovely.

I was there on a weekday afternoon and there was no wait to sit in the upstairs dining area. I was seated right away but, there was only 1 guy working the whole room,,, so service was not that great.
