We had a delicious brunch - including fresh squeezed Orange Juice, poached eggs, greens. Everything was just right, including the Brazilian woman who was running the cafe. She was beautiful from the inside out - helpful and caring. It is a gem in the Portobello...More

Places like this were cool & happening about 7-10 years ago on the west coast of the US so frankly this is all a bit naff and trying just far too hard. The bar is filthy and the service was pretty slap dash. When are...More

From the outside you wouldn't guess that this location is plenty of space and the most diverse and vibrant public. Plenty of food and drinks options. Definitely a place to be and explore.

Greatest place I saw during my week in Dublin. You have either inhouse pub, or courtyard music ground, or tasty pizzas in famous Big Blue Bus. On top, back yard is full with top street art. THE place to see on Dublin's alternative scene.
