During our three night stay in Dublin, we tried to eat at different spots but always ended up at Bankers Bar. Excellent Guiness Pie and ceasar salad, and of course, beer !

The service was great, the food was excellent, it was quiet which was even more wonderful. We had a lovely romantic lunch, a place I would return if I ever came back to Dublin

Great place to get something to eat in the evening. Place is split into bar downstairs and restaurant upstairs. Food was nice, service was great and responsive. And Beer is as great as in other pubs in the center.
