I've been a customer for close to 30 years and can honestly stay have never had a bad night there. It's a family run premises who have always put their customers first. Staff are friendly and hard working, food is excellent and the atmosphere (...pre covid ) was brilliant. They have spent a lot of money making it a very safe and spacious pub during this Covid pandemic and ensure you have a pleasant experience. A great place to watch sports especially the Gaa. Would highly recommend.More

Couldn't recommend Rody Bolands enough. Amazing service from Ian! Such a warm and friendly atmosphere and the added ease of the covid implementation is fantastic. Thanks so much 😊

Rody's is a local for me but until now I had never tried the food. As it is now a requirement post lockdown on my first visit I ordered the garlic mushrooms from their concise but balanced Menu. They were so good I came back...especially to get them again along with some lovely chicken wings, washed down by a perfectly crisp, cold pint of Heineken. As an introduction to Pub life with social distancing you could not find a better venue. The staff are lovely and very genuine. They are also highly attentive and most welcoming. Particular mentions to Ian and Katie for their excellent service. Well done to all for providing a lovely experience during trying times 👏👏👏More

Rody Bolands Pub in Rathmines area of Dublin is a wonderful pub with character. Attentive staff attend to your liquid needs as you enjoy the gorgeous atmosphere in this relaxed pub. (and it’s literally three steps from the UpperCross Hotel👍). Would highly recommend this pub...for a relaxing drink.More

On 18/1/2020 at 5.30, me and my husband went for food in rody boland. We both ordered fish and chip which was cold and burnt and dry. As I would of inform the waiter of this, it proved extremely hard to find one. After handing...more than half of my meal back I ordered banoffee pie. That banoffee was 80% cream, dry and the biscuit had 0 butter in it cause to be like dry up crumbs that you would find in the bottom of a biscuit packet. All and all this meal was not worth the price as the food was similar pre-made Tesco meal.More
