Called in here early evening on a Sunday and the place was buzzing! Friendly atmosphere with live music - Fish & chips and Irish Stew both very good and reasonably priced. Great night.

Every Dublin visit we spend at least one evening in this superb pub. Music gigs every night (incl. afternoons during the weekend, think). Lots of locals singing along, overwhelming beer choice, crispy batter and succulent fish when you order Fish+Chips. Reasonable prices, although the prices...More

Hi Nathan - Fridays can get busy early as there is live music from 6pm - between 7 & 10 it's fairly busy so there may be a slight wait for a free table at those times - reservations are taken up until 6pm on Fridays .
