A great Dublin pub with a lot of character and history along with atmosphere and good food and drink. Not a bad combination and a good place to enjoy a pint or a well-made gin and tonic.

Just had one drink in here over the weekend and there was no atmosphere at all so we headed home. It's a lovely pub but it would do with music or something at the weekends to liven it up a bit.

This pub is well overdue being refurbished, and could also do with a deep clean. The food is OK, but nothing special. Overall, not really impressed.

We specifically went to this place to have O Hara Red ale, which was very nice. The Guinness was great. We sat outside and had fish cake and chips, which were great.

Our very first pub experience upon arrival on our first trip to Ireland. Obviously very famous and historic. We walked right in late the afternoon and were promptly waited on by Micaela, who is from Croatia. She was very personable and made us feel right...More
