Came here for lunch and drinks; the bangers and mash were excellent! Bar service was pretty slow, but the staff were all very pleasant. It's Halloween now as well, so the decor is a sight to behold. Would love to come back!

Situated right alongside the River Liffey adjacent to Connell Bridge, this is a really welcoming traditional old pub and craft brewery. Great choice of craft beers brewed on site - especially liked the West Coast Pale Ale. Also sell a wide range of local guns...More

Food and service were very good. Their red ale was very good and is made on site. Loved the old wood and staircase to second floor. Nice view of river. I would definitely recommend eating and drinking here.

We had lunch here on our second day in Dublin. Really cool place, kind of quiet because of the time of day (abt 3pm local). We ate upstairs by a window with great views of the river. Chicken was dry. Irish Stew and drinks perfect!

We had a long weekend in Dublin a few years ago and ate here one evening. We said if we ever returned we'd go back - and hope it hadn't changed. We did go back and we weren't disappointed - it hasn't changed. The staff...More

I loved this place. If Hogwarts had a staff bar, it would look like this. Even better, they have one beer cask conditioned on hand pump, on a rotating basis. When I was there with my wife, it was a Red Ale. The barman who...More

They brew their own beer and have a large variety of selections. We got a flight and tried most of them, but surprisingly the flight didn't include the weiss, so we got that separately. Good beer and nice atmosphere.

No idea, this was the first time I was in Dublin so I don't really know what the usual price of a craft beer is there. Both food and beers were great and judging from how full the pub was the visitors are obviously willing... More
