10 of us reserved a table and not one had a bad item. We ate everything from the fried brie, great raw oysters,salmon salads, boxtys of every sort and the deserts that were so yummy.

I'm still disappointed that I have had a better boxty in San Diego than Dublin. What gives Boxty House?

Located in the heart of the Temple Bar District, a great place to party by the way. Hands down the best boxty in all of Ireland!

Waiters were really friendly. Enjoyed local cuisine - it is °rated as the best place for traditional food in Dublin. Probably, seems to be deserved ;)

I think you have to not be Irish to like Boxty's. I like 'em. It's always jammers in this place - a total tourist trap - but it's decent food.
