Use your Hop Off Hop On coupon to get a free small Guinness. Kale and tomato soup was delicious. Mediterranean chicken panini sandwich was good. Friendly service. Nice pub.

Great place with locals, no music though on the night we were. I don't even know if there's even music at this place. Anyway, food was good, waiter was very nice. I had a beef&guiness stew, very good. And obviously, a pint of Guiness!

Much bigger then it looks, but divided into smaller sections. Good food and beer, and service was good too. Very cozy!

Nancy Hand was the first place we visited when we arrived to Ireland. Lovely waiter asked us are we from Finland. Then he told that we love you - you're are same as we are. I couldn't agree more. Thank you ❤️

Large bowl of mussels (in delicious sauce), 2 pints of perfectly-poured Guinness, bread and butter pudding made with Teeling whiskey and a shot of Teeling on the side - now that's what I call dinner!!! Great place and excellent service - would definitely recommend.

Dublin Airport us approx 15 to 20 minutes away by Taxi but this of course is highly dependent on the time of day. At rush hour it is a lottery but by evening time it's much easier to get about Dublin.

I assume you mean the pub. Being in Dublin, not much is air conditioned - not needed in a cool climate. But while we were at Nancy Hands we saw no indication of AC
