We went on a busy Sunday afternoon and were promptly brought in, even in the middle of the pandemic and restrictions to the booths upstairs - big family group but we were on side by side table. The service was outstanding, the food was also...amazing, great portion size cooked to perfection - we have a variety of food order with the Fish Box figuring prominently (Hake was the fish of the day) - it was an amazing food experience, one of the best I have had in ireland. I will certainly will be going back as we were all really pleased.More

Duffy's is a delight to visit. The staff are friendly and the service is excellent. Duffy's have a great plan in place during the global pandemic. The place is clean, comfortable, and very well managed. All staff wear PPE. It is great to see them...taking every precaution and ensuring that their staff and their customers are as safe as possible. The food is great, and their bar staff and servers are phenomenal.More

My self and 3 of my nieces had booked a table for 7.30 pm Saturday 22 nd August 2020 as our catch up night due to Covid -19 we had not seen each other for a while. We arrived and greeted by lovely friendly staff...with face masks, shown to our table which was well spaced from other table and also a clear devide between each, every staff member front of bar and behind bar fully complinent with Covid -19 regulations, toilets spotless clearly marked and taped off with Co8vid -19 signs. We have lovely food, large chicken wings as starters, beautiful steaks, dessert and had their amazing cocktails. We really enjoyed our evening, catching up over a lovely meal and cocktails all thanks to the warm welcome and friendly staff. We will return again some time soon. B.C.More

Lovely staff, great food but with covid you need to spend 9 euros on food. Wanted chicken wings, but as they are priced at 8.95 I was told I needed to buy something else to make 9 euros. I have no issue with all regulations...and agree that we all need to work through this together, but trying to get more money out of people for 5cents makes no sense. I asked can they charge me 9 euros for the wings, but was told - no can do. Pubs should be looking after their customers and not trying to make a extra euro and risk us never returning.More

Duffy’s Pub is operating as a restaurant during the COVID-19 Virus Pandemic. Our staff have been fully trained in COVID-19 regulations and unfortunately, we must enforce the €9.00 minimum order on food. The Gardai can ask to see a till receipt as proof of purchase...More

Great lunch. Been here post lockdown. It is always consistent and is very good value for money. The lunch menu is simple but quality. Will be back soon.

This week we decided to try another local business for take away Sunday dinner. Our favourite pub in the area, Duffy's, is,of course, closed due to the Coronavirus but they have instituted a take away service from their excellent kitchen. We checked out the menu,...got on the phone, ordered two Sunday roast lamb dinners and paid (€39.40). I picked up the two piping hot meals at the agreed time. The food was delicious- lamb, roast and mashed potatoes, carrots and cabbage. We didn't leave a smidgin on the plate. Definitely one to come back to in the future.More

On a business trip, 8 of us walked into Malahide one evening. Came across Duffy's lovely staff very helpful had a drink and decided to stop for a meal. We were a few different nationalities but everyone could find something to enjoy. I had the...Steak and Guinness pie, which was delicious could have done with more steak it was so good. All had good comments to say about the food. We needed to pay separately, this wasn't a problem for young lady that was looking after us. If you want good pub food this is the place to go.More
