Walked in on a Tuesday night and were blown away by the music being played. They have 2 live gigs everyday between 8-10 pm and 10 pm-1 am. The music is a mix of Irish folk, latest pop music, jazz and blues. Bar is crowded but ample of space to stand around. Service is swift.

I really liked the place, good music, good beer. Went on St Patricks Day, had a great time. The bathroom was clean, considering the occasion.

My husband asked could he use the toilets in the restaurant while we waited and the lady let him go upstairs. He went into the Gents and was immediately followed by... More

The meals are really nice. Good traditional food. I have to take off a point for service. I didn't get part of my meal as the waitress didn't write it down after asking what side I wanted. Overall though it was pretty good. Would recommend. We had the Sheppard's pie and beef and Guinness stew. The meals are of big... More

Quays is a great place to go to hear live music, they had a band every time we went, always a fun crowd dancing - bartenders Steven & Connor were awesome!

We popped into this bar while exploring Temple bar for the first time... We were loving temple bar as it was anyway, the oldy-worldy feel about the whole area. Everyone's very welcoming and it's a lovely area for tourists. We popped into the Quays and there was a guy with a guitar and an amazing voice, singing and playing. (There... More
