We went to Finnegan's on the way back from the amazing seafront of dalkey. We had great food and a couple of pints of Guinness. Great quality/price ratio, nice and quiet pub

Not our first visit to this eatery -this was a family lunch in Finnegans - pre-booked - and was a very enjoyable culinary experience recently. Our waiting staff were excellent - thank you Amy- and service was great. From the tasty brown bread to the delicious starters, the fish pie was exactly that! Though only two of us opted for dessert, the extra spoon was out to use! It was pleasantly busy for mid week and the atmosphere was quiet. Will definitely be back again.

Stopped in for a post-dinner whiskey on the way back to our hotel in Dalkey. We took the DART train from Dublin city center, and then a taxi after Finnegan's back to our hotel (the Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel) up the hill from town.

Finnegan's had been highly recommended to us by an artist friend from Ireland, and she did not steer us wrong. The staff was incredibly friendly. For example, my husband asked our server if she knew of an ATM machine close by. (The bar takes credit cards, but we'd been needing to get some cash.) She instead offered to give him cash if we made a small purchase (she'd already run our card for our round of drinks and we weren't planning to order any more). We'd had a late lunch that serves as a very early dinner so we were a little hungry and ordered some peanuts, and he got back a fair amount of cash. What is remarkable about this is that the bar was packed, standing room only, and she was clearly a busy server. But she took time to go above and beyond for us and was very friendly all the while.

The atmosphere of Finnegan's is traditional pub style, but it has a slightly upscale feel. And the clientele were surprisingly well-dressed. They were also friendly. My husband had "GT" on his polo-style shirt since we had come from the Georgia Tech / Boston College football game played that day in Dublin at Aviva Stadium. A nice gentleman came over and struck up a conversation about the game, where we are from, etc.

All in all, I highly recommend Finnegan's.

Just 50 meters from the DART Station. A very welcoming pub. Great food, service and ambiance. Highly recommended.
