Great bar with nice beers and enough seats. Real warm and irish feeling. Must visit for all. One of my favourites.

This place brought back memories of the old Irish Pubs of NYC,that had inexpensive beer,old guys sitting at the bar and a mens room that you would only stand up in.The place needs a major overhaul,but I loved it.

What you see is what you get. McCloskeys isn't the most stylish or lively of spots. If you want that then go elsewhere. If you want a good pint, chatty locals, friendly staff and a comfortable pub to catch up with a few pals then...More

Enjoyed watching the rugby whilst sinking a few beers. No food was available so we had to make do with crisps. Friendly and helpful staff. Hope to check out the food next time we are over in August for the Women's Rugby World Cup.

Pub is outdated and worn out, needs work. There was no bar food available when we asked. Nice staff though

We stopped in here a few times while staying nearby. The barman was super friendly and the atmosphere is great! No food, though.

Very friendly pub, lovely Irish stew served here daily. Friendliest pub m Donnybrook, mostly locals here, very spacious bar with huge lounge and a really great smoking area.

We were in the area and decided to pop into my old watering hole for a drink. How disappointed we were. The place was tired looking and the seats were in a bad way. No atmosphere at all. I understand that it was sold recently...More

This is a pleasant pub off the tourist track, very respectable. They draw a good Guinness at the tap and we had our first Irish lamb here, which was delicious. Service was good too, although we were dining early so it wasn't very busy.
