We ate dinner our last night in Dublin. The meal was good. Four of us had the following - fish and chips, seafood chowder, wings, and potato and leek soup. All of which were good. Also had a pint of Guinness.

Nice food, nice staff, not overly expensive and the beer they serve met expectations. Not normally a great fan of lager but theirs was actually pretty good and I’d happily have some more.

I know there menu identifies all allergens and other items for each item in the menu. What I'm not sure is if any items were gluten-free. I just didn't really pay any attention to that. Sorry.
