Right off Grafton Street is Bailey's Pub. Stopped in for a quick drink and snack before a lye dinner. Great selection of craft beer as well as classic Guinness. Order the meat and cheese platter, it's enough for two. And the best reason to stop in, friendly staff greeting you with a smile.

Called in sat 28/01 just as they opened, got a nice seat by window and a few glasses of a very nice Rioja for €7.50 a glass. Very nice relaxing atmosphere and quite a range of clientele, plenty of seating inside and outside, a really nice way to spend a couple of hours to recharge the batteries. Only quibble and... More

While most places in Dublin were over crowded with Christmas parties we managed to get a cosy seat in the window here and relax with our favourite drinks. Atmosphere was great, good music and attentive service despite being busy with a good selection of drinks. We even got free Santa Hats to take home!

Sitting outside under the canopy and heaters in December with a great pint watching the world go by, what a great way to spend a couple of hours. Staff good fun and very efficient. Went there 3 different days out of our four days in Dublin

There was a group of 6 if us in this pub, rudest staff I've ever come across! I would never step foot back in the place!.. not worth a visit unless you want awful service!

Myself and 4 friends where in the bailey last night (Saturday ) for a few drinks. Even though the place was busy we managed to get seats. The bar staff where efficient and friendly. At 12.30am I went to the ladies toilets. They where filthy. Toilet roll strewn all over the place. I don't know what kind of women do... More

Popped into Bailey bar a couple of times during a weekend in Dublin. Didn't try the food but the wine was good and they had a good selection of gin, all at reasonable prices. It was in a great location, just off Graffton Street and sitting outside it was a great spot for people watching.
