Lunch here is great. And is quite a little known local secret. Try the Cottage Pie. If you're in this place too say hi to Damien - probably the most gifted and friendly Barman in Ireland. Legend.

Classic Pub that has retained its originality, warm and friendly charme! They take their proper time to draw a great glass of Guiness. Food looks traditional and very tasty!

If you are in Dalkey, you must visit this pub. The atmosphere is very comfortable and characteristic. I had a couple of beers (Guinness and Irish Pale Ale) and they were both really good.

Our party of four spent an hour in this well known bar where the men could have remained due to the rugby. Big crowd but served quickly.

We ate lunch here and it was busy with locals. The service was good and the pub was paneled and loaded with charm and character. We returned later in the week for cocktails and beers and the service was just as good!

No it is not. You might be competing with lunch crowd, but there is usually plenty of room.
