Some very nice rooms and a nice athmosphere. Missing the last star because of a bit slow serving, but all in all very nice.

The staff were good. We had the chicken skewers which were small but cheap. The marinated chicken and steak sandwich which were both very good but the smoked salmon salad which wasn't great.

This is my favourite Dublin pub and there’s nothing better than a few G&Ts (off the DOG menu) and a bite to eat at the bar. Friendly staff, quick service and a good atmosphere no mater what time of day.

Hit this bar straight after getting off the plane and bus to the city! Great beer and service was good. We dropped by again at another time but couldn't get in - very popular place..

There beers, porters and stout are great. The Oyster stout I had was just brilliant and paired very well with the Oysters

The live band 10.000 hours is really good. And the wooden staircase and beer bottles in the walls establishment feels like the Weasley farm. The food on the other hand is open for improvement.

Thank Tomar v

Hi Tomar! Thanks for your honest words. 10 000 hours are one of our favourites also, great gig every Monday if you are in the area. Thanks again and see you back again soon hopefully.

I agree with Ann - the place is very big on several floors. But it's also quite crowded. So I would suggest you booking in advance.
