We had 4 meals here over the weekend and found the food varied in quality and quantity. The same meal on different days was smaller and had parts missing. Staff were mostly great but the tables were not cleared until we left. The location and views are great.

This was our first time to try a Wetherspoons outlet outside of the UK. It’s in an absolutely superb spot overlooking Dún Laoghaire harbour, with views stretching as far as Howth on the north side and then as far as you can see on the south side. It was around 4pm when we got there, and the place was just... More

Good food, cheap prices, good atmosphere, the only bummer is that there isn't music playing. The view is amazing, you can watch the bay and the service is fantastic. The main thing is the really low prices, pint of beer 2.5-3.5 Euro. Large steak meal 11 Euro.

Great value pub grub. This must be the only place in Dublin to get a pint of beer at under €4. Really good cross section of age groups makes this an ideal spot to meet up with friends or have a dinner or lunch for 2. Lovely views over the harbour is a bonus.

This is a great place to go for a below average price food and drink. When it's full there is a great buzz in the place and there's a wonderful deck outside overlooking Dun Laoghaire harbour with plenty of room to sit and soak up the sun and atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

A great spot for lunch if the weather allows you, out on the terrace/balcony, or inside with lovely views. Food and drinks have very very good prices. Simple food, nothing fancy, but decent and enjoyable. Service is fine.
