Great bar, busy on weekends, lots of reused sofas and chairs, cool events (open mike and movie nights) during the week, good selection of beer, and they also offer food (from Camille Thai across the road). Its kind of like sitting in someone's living room, except with good music and beer on tap!

Nice venue, very busy and good atmosphere. Music was good altogether good night out. They don't serve food so we had to seek alternatives for eating.

I finally dropped in the other evening and indulge in a few pints of beer. The decor is pleasant to the eye, as the wall-covering is,decorative... More

Mature parents and siblings on a farewell outing for over of us. Piped music of 60's and 70's very enjoyable for us oldies. Sometimes a little too loud for good conversation. Next to us a group of teenagers shouting and screaming to be noticed. The single live artist was very good. The food from Camille was so bad that all... More

Far and away the best pub in Dun Laoghaire. We had more fun here than in any pub in Dublin. The staff was great and the locals were a blast, we can't wait to get back.

Quirky layout of rooms makes for some interest, loyal clientele seem very comfortable, music nights can be different. Worth a visit.

We were visiting and staying at the royal marine and this pub is located nearby for walking. The pub has a really cool vibe to it and the band playing was quite good. We will be here for the week and I am certain will visit a few more times this week for a few pints. Dallan the manager was... More
