“A real treat if you or friends are visiting Dublin.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2017

To those of you unable to hire a car and who are looking for an affordable way of seeing Dublin's coastline try taking the Dart (train) southbound to Killiney and walk back northwards towards Dalkey, for here you'll find one of Dublin's top Family run restaurants.

The weather wasn't great on our visit so the walk from Killiney to Dalkey was on what the Irish refer to as a "Soft Day" but to which you and I refer to as damp, wet and windy. However walking into a very warm and welcoming Finnegans made the previous hours walk in the rain all the more worthwhile.

Great seafood, great menu selection, great service, lovely atmosphere in the build up to Christmas and a great pint of Guinness. If you want to save yourself the walk just get off at Dalkey as the station is only about 50 metres away. A real treat if you or friends are visiting Dublin.

We'll be back.

“Classic Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2016 via mobile

This pub, in the quaint town of Dalky, is a great place to stop for a pint--I hear the food is good but can't confirm this personally. Friendly, family run place with all the charm of a classic pub. Stain glass back windowed room is lovely and Beamish on tap here. Worth the dart ride out to visit this lovely town and pub.

“Such a pretty pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2016

We were on a CIE tour and had some free time so we stopped in for a drink. Beautiful and welcoming. We were told that it was a favorite of author Maeve Binchley as well as Bono and First Lady Michele Obama and their families went there. Wish we had found it sooner and could have had dinner there but we had very limited time.
