“Refreshingly different so wholesome ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Shame we found this on the last day! I couldn't decide so I went for a trio of stew! Not for the faint hearted. It's for a woman who has been on the town all weekend in Dublin and needs a good hearty healthy stew to make the flight home
Thank you so much, will definitely return. Ps my favourite was the Dublin coddle stew. My mum had the corn beef Dumplins it was very special.
The jack smith stout was better than Guinness and that saying something!

“Best Boxty in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My kids and my husband have taken several trips to Ireland and whenever they go they HAVE to go eat here. Other than my homemade boxty this is the best. It is in a great old building with a wonderful quant atmosphere. The staff is awesome. Just looking in makes you happy and hungry. When my daughter was in Dublin last year she ate here several times.

“A little different on Fleet St”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

We were new to Dublin and our hotel recommended Boxty as "new Irish "
Fleet St was awash (it was of course raining) with noisy pubs but this one stood out as somewhat more refined. The tasty food was reasonably priced and the service quite good
We will go back

“Great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

We ate at this little gem on the day we were leaving Dublin and what a way to finish a fantastic trip, all 5 of us enjoyed every mouthful, the boxty fries are amazing and a lovely touch one of our group had a terrible sore throat and the waiter brought her a complimentary hot honey and lemon, cannot beat service of that quality.
