Best bar we’ve been to so far in Dublin. Tentative staff, manager could be seen and was involved not only with the customer but could be seen jumping on where the staff needed a bit of extra support, whether it was on the floor behind...the bar or doing the washing up! Great cocktails, fab food and a great atmosphere!More

Amazing service!! Best place we went to in Dublin. Our waitress Grace was so brilliant and very attentive. I had rang earlier that day to see about reserving a table and it seemed to be booked up. The man on the phone said to come...anyway and they would see what they could do for us. When my friend and I arrived they got us a table and the staff continued to make sure we had drinks and great service all evening. Will definately be back!More

5 star service from start to finish, our waitress was amazing (think her name was Leticia), food was served all night long which was amazing, and the music by Sheriff was just first class. Best bar in Dublin 🇮🇪🇮🇪

I really don't know were all the bad reviews are coming from. I've been going here for the last few years with friends and my wife recently. The food is easily the best around Dublin City. Pricing is brilliant. And overall ambience is 100 percent.

A tour guide recommended Bad Bobs to me due to it having a history of being the first Dublin pub to sell Irish Coffee. The pub was very busy and there was some live music, but I only stayed for about 20 minutes as I...stopped in after a show at the Gaiety. The Irish Coffee, although small, was delicious.More

Yes we went on a Saturday and there were various live music acts on. Didn’t see any Irish dancers though.

Although thursday is a main "eat-out" evening, I would book a table. Going early, about 6PM helps but I would advise to book. We had the ctch of the day and a veggie burger, both excellent, and off course a Guiness
