Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The food was less than mediocre. I searched valiantly for some lamb in the lamb stew. Don’t bother with this place. Beer fine

Brannigans is still the only place for lunch for us when shopping in Dublin. Great owners, great staff, fantastic food and atmosphere we wouldn’t go anywhere else. Food standards are outstanding the beef dinner is the best himself has had anywhere and this time I...had the scampi which was a great choice and served with proper hand cut chips (a rarity where we live believe me). I’d come just for the chips! Unbelievable prices for the location and we left full and happy as always. Great to see the place packed at lunch time on a Sunday and we did miss our visits during the travel restrictions. Thanks again we’ll see you again on our next trip to DublinMore

I dropped in for a few pints and then had the Chicken and bacon sandwich for some soakage. It was coupled with a delicious tomato soup. The food never dissappoints here and the Guinness they say is among the best in Dublin.

Tasty mushroom soup and seafood chowder! Roast beef was more like boiled (slow cooked), rather than grilled or roasted. But it was tender and and the sauce was tasty. The spicy chicken wings were good but very spicy. Total cost a glass of wine and...a stout was €54.More

After a great seafood chowder and some irish oak smoked salmon served on some bread we had traditional fish & chips and baked fillet of hake with fries. All was excellent and the service was great! We sat in the first floor of the restaurant....Next to us was a lively group of retirees enjoying their Guinness and having fun! It was a great experience of an irish pub in Dublin, thanks!!More

We stopped by Brannigans for delicious Irish food during our Dublin trip. The Lamb Stew is so tasty. The seafood chowder was full of delicious seafood chunks. Staff are friendly and helpful even when the bar was full. Its located on a side street in...Dublin, but still gets very busy of their beer selection and food.More

Had dinner here one evening in May 2022. The traditional roast dinner was a huge plate of food, enough for two. Beef was a little tough and the carrots were dry but the parsnips were fabulous. Lamb stew was also a little bland, not the...best. Pricing was decent for the location.More

Meal was absolutely grim. Fabled lamb stew was a dull tasteless soup with two scoops of lumpy potato mash. It was grim. Likewise the Peppered chicken. Awful.

Service was very good, barman friendly. Food was disappointingly poor. Lamb stew more like a grey soup with no seasoning. Peppercorn chicken sauce was bland as was the bacon it was wrapped in, no taste at all. I am sure there are better places nearby...for food. Would return for a drink but not food.More

Perfect pub experience! The sandwiches are great, they have a satisfying choice of Beer and whiskeys. I love the interior. They have 3 TVs and the service is quick and friendly, just outstanding! Go there if you’re in doubt which pub to choose :)

Nice food, good prices, attentive service… really wholesome place, relaxed local vibe - classic green leather, dark wood pub! We had the burger and peppercorn chicken… then desert too!

They dont serve breakfast but im sure you could have an early lunch. most irish pubs dont open until 10.30 so they dont usually serve breakfast.
