An absolute covid super spreader place. In a time that restaurants and pubs are doing their utmost to stay safe and follow covid rules this place shows absolutely no regard for covid rules. It was crammed with people, zero attempt made to social distance and...covid certs not checked. This was at a time the fear of omicron and it’s fast spreading pace was high. Came from a restaurant that meticulously followed the rules to this place. Obviously didn’t stay but very disappointed to experience the scene in this pub.More

Devitt's was my local when my wife and I moved to Dublin, 15 years ago. We now live a 10 minute walk from Devitt's with many pubs closer to our apartment, but it is still our local. When the owner retired and his nephew took...charge, the pub was renovated, giving it more light, less of an old pub feel and is louder (with walls that reflect the sound). Added was a great menu: really tasty, well prepared food. One of the things that remained, is the live music., including one evening, currently Wednesday, with traditional Irish music. My wife and I had last been to Devitt's in March 2020, a few days before the lockdown. Yesterday, we returned - 19 months later - to eat and to hear live traditional Irish music. I cannot say enough good things about the staff. They were friendly, efficient and initially arranged for us to sit and be served our drinks and to order our food. When a table near the musicians became free, they moved us there. Great music: violin, accordion and Uilleann pipes. Between songs, we had an interesting conversation with a German father and daughter visiting Ireland. Another great night. We will be back, often.More

Went here with my friends for food & drinks last weekend. Staff were friendly and attentive. However, the only fault was the manager's comments were a disgrace! I and everyone at the table tasted a vodka my friend had ordered and it was clear there...was a mix up as it did not taste or smell like vodka. The staff member got my friend another drink and still the same. She changed to a beer and asked the manager politely for it to be taken off the bill - no problem it seeemed. My other friend ordered the Nacho's which to him tasted stale, so he did not want to eat them - the manager was extremely rude at this stage and flippantly called him a ''Nacho expert'' as well as my friend a ''vodka expert'' whilst storming away. In no means were they rude about the food/drinks, we just did not want to pay for the items. After complaining to the manager about his nasty, throwaway, rude comments we were told by him that he was the owner?? Well you should get better customer service training Mr ''Owner''. He said we were all too ''drunk to tell it was vodka'' I was a sober person that evening and didn't taste vodka on the drink - yet I am apparently too drunk to tell the difference? Laughable. Not to mention the staff all looked terrified of him!! We will not be back and will not be recommending. Not to mention we dined indoors and were not asked for our Vaccination Cert's.More

We visited Devitt's our first night in Dublin. Staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. It had the looks of a traditional Irish pub but a very upbeat crowd. Food was excellent. Highly recommend the beef stew!

My first ever review. I'll start off by saying that I'm in the service industry myself and, although I've been here a few times pre-Covid, my comments today are based on several visits, post-Covid, over the past month or so. The food is lovely and...the chefs are good to go along with any particular requests, like swapping brown bread for toasted sourdough bread, or whatever. Service is exemplary, from 'front of house' to floor, to bar, to kitchen. I overpaid one bill by a stuck-to-another €20, but even though I told them to 'keep the change', Conor and Xania realised my mistake and brought it to my attention. To Conor and Xania, Emma, Owen, Harry, Sara, Vinny, and all the other staff who's names I just don't know yet, thank you. To Rachel, who's training the new staff member, Alan, in how to make cocktails (calmly patient), and to Alan himself, obviously willing to learn. Devitt's has a great local feel to it and is fully aware of it's Covid responsibilities. On one occasion when I was there the Gardaí came in and checked how things were going but, not surprisingly, were happy at how things were run. This is a great pub, well run, great, attentive, and honest staff. As a footnote, an elderly lady comes in, dressing gown, slippers, asks for a glass of water, served and greeted by name and with courtesy, (kudos also to Jerusalem Cafe next-door) - well done for your humanity, kindness and community spirit.More

Two 20-something guys? Not sure their name, but we were equally impressed. I think they play at Devitt's on Mondays as well. In terms of the song--Fisherman's Blues by the Waterboys.
