Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Food was great, area we had was a bit small for the 8 of us, the main issue was the service, we had to ask them for menu's and for them to come down to take our order. Other than that they were very friendly, got the order correct. It could have been they were short staffed and it didn't ruin the night in anyway. All in all great food and great value. I will come back again.

After travelling around Ireland for two weeks, finally found a steak + Guiness pie! It was DELICIOUS and a very generous portion, but I ate the whole thing! Beef was tender and the gravy thick and tasty. Carrots and maybe squash in the mixture with a puff pastry top. I ordered a side of gravy for my mash, but there was enough in the pie really to dip with. ENJOY,

From the moment we walked in we felt at home at the Ginger Man. The staff were welcoming, the drinks and food first class and the banter at the bar was so entertaining we probably had too many rounds of drinks! Great music too. If we were in Dublin longer we would definitely be back, especially after a disappointing experience the night before in Temple Bar.

I have always loved the Ginger man and the atmosphere but unfortunately it has changed over the last couple of months. I have had a couple of unfortunately episodes there over the last couple months with everything from unwelcoming staff, forgotten orders etc but we all need to get a chance after starting again after the pandemic.. But this evening was just too weird. We couldn’t be served in the bar even when it was our turn after standing in line like everyone else. The bartender kept on asking people behind us. Afterwards we ordered food sitting at a table inside and they asked us to pay for the food before it was served. We thought it was a misunderstanding so we asked for the food first. One waiter came down to ask for the payment in the beginning of the meal and then another waiter asked again 5 minutes later. All the other tables were served with food around us at the same time and none of the other tables with Irish people had to pay before eating their food. It made me so sad because I didn’t understand what was wrong and the staff couldn’t explain it to us. I hope it will change and go back to how it was before again. You still have great hot wings but it is just not everything.

Was extremely disappointed with both service and quality of food. I ordered soup of the day (€6) with side portion of onion rings (€7) - do up was bland & onion rings were cooked from frozen & also bland - totally overpriced at €7 and not tasty. My friend ordered "bangers & mash" (€17) and we were both shocked with extremely small portion size with 3 not very big overcooked sausages. We also had to wait a long time for food. Definitely would not recommend for either service, quality & value for your money.

My husband and I stopped in this pub for beer and then dinner. The pub was frequented mostly by a young after-work crowd. People sat inside and stood outside. We sampled four good beers. Then we had House Curry Chicken with rice and French fries. The Beef and Guinness pie was topped with a biscuit crust and served with mashed potatoes. The food was good. We did not eat all the carbs. The atmosphere was a bit noisy and festive as expected in a bar.

Very unusual to be asked to pay for your food before you get it (apart from fast food places). Maybe they have issues with people not paying but cannot think of another pub in Dublin that does this. We got the sharing platter and a couple of beers. Cocktail sausages (ok). wings (good but too few), wedges (ok) and onion rings (good). We got a side of fries too but that was definitely too much food for 2. Pub is fine if a little off the beaten track. Better pubs with better food close by who probably wait until you are finished to take your money

Absolutely ridiculous bouncer staff, wouldn’t let my partner in. Had one look at him and decided he was too drunk to come. This was absolutely non sense because we had only had 1 drink at our hotel prior to our arrival. He was letting everyone else in but us. Absolutely disgusting and will never ever recommend this. We are on our holiday and was looking forward to be in here, and they made a judgemental decision to not let any of us in. He was extremely rude, no consideration I even asked if he could explain why he didn’t let us in, all his reply was ‘he’s had too much to drink’ . He wasn’t stumbling, wasn’t slurring speech, just patiently stood waiting in the queue like everyone else. Not made a fuss, just talking to our group as normal, excited for a night out. He has ruined our night, absolutely so so annoyed I will never ever be back. Singled my partner out for no apparent reason. -10283 / 10 review. Terrible terrible customer service

This is a very festive pub! Great for drinking and getting the Dublin vibe but the food is very ordinary. Guinness pie and mash- puff pastry round on top, stew ok, mash was so dry and ordinary. Go for a drink but don’t eat

The pub itself is really pretty but the staff did not treat us nicely at all. Very impolite. We had just a few drinks, 2 girls and when we were leaving I heard them saying oh finally they are leaving. I swear we did not even speak with them besides asking for a glass of wine. Not sure what was going on there, but some of the waiters really lack manners.

The pub is quirky with lots of nooks & crannies. It was decorated brilliantly with Halloween decorations. The staff were very attentive. We got a few nibbles to eat with our drinks. Chicken goujon platter 10 pieces for €15 was good but €7 for a side order of chips was a bit steep especially since bowl was the size of a soup 🍲 bowl.ladies toilets were a bit gross, sanitary bins overflowing, no soap,but it was a busy weekend night so maybe it's better on other days.

Staying in a hotel local to the Ginger Man for the weekend and we wanted to experience the life around us. Went to the Ginger Man on a Friday at 7:30pm on the off chance that they could accommodate us for food and a couple of drinks. We only had to wait 10 mins for the guy at the front door to find us a table and the staff were excellent and friendly. The food was good pub grub and the quality was great. Ivan recommend the Beef and Guinness pie. The noise level was typical of a busy Irish pub - i.e loud but I guess that’s normal for a Friday evening Dublin. If you are looking for a quiet night then the Ginger Man isn’t going to be the place for you. This place certainly has life and plenty of it. They have a huge selection of beer and Irish Whiskey to suit all tastes and budgets. I would hope that we will be back in Dublin at some point and if we are, we would be happy to come back to the Ginger Man.

Was given this suggestion by a local, but by chance was next door to The Alex Hotel which I was staying. It’s a popular place for locals, and I would imagine for the tourist that is lucky to find this place. At the time of our visit their system was down, so could only take cash. No big deal! We had cash, not enough so the guy at the front door told us where the nearest atm was located. The staff were super friendly, and the 2 story restaurant gets packed fast. I am basic and had enough Guinness for the day so we split the goat cheese balls and then I got the Caesar salad. Between the environment, staff, and food I would definitely recommend for any traveler

My husband and I had a nice dinner here and ordered two glasses of Black Bushmills for after dinner. It tasted like it had been watered down. They poured two more glasses for us, but the watery lavor persisted. They were good enough to remove it from our check, but it was a very disappointing experience.

We were staying in the area (Grants Row) and in my research for pubs close by, GM showed up as a hidden gem (esp on a cold, windy and rainy night). We found the seating a bit tight the first night but a couple pints of Guinness and nachos/chicken fingers made us forget all about it :). It was good enough for us to return a second evening which was our last one in town. Great location (for someone staying in the area) and reasonable prices. Would go back again if I am in Ireland and close to the area!
