How can you have a venue serving Alcohol in Dublin and NOT serve Guinness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unbelievable!! No guinness!... is this a JOKE!... no pun intended!

Seriously we booked for Sat night (25th Sept) as thought it would be better to do something different whilst in Dublin.

Service has to be the worst I've experienced in any table service venue. (no bar service, only table service)

We arrived at 7.30 ish and was seated faily swiftly. by 8pm we ordered some nachos and a cocktail pitcher.

8.25 The food and dribks arrived. The cocktail pitcher contained just 3 cocktails so no different to buying 3 cocktails but you did get 95% orange juice and ice and I doubt there is any more than 2 shots of alcohol in there.

10.30 we eventually had to stop a member of staff to firstly ask for the empty plate of nachos to be removed from the table and to order another drink.

The compere was actually pretty good and funny. The main acts was average at best this might be a little harsh are I was pretty annoyed by this time as the empty nachos and having no drink.

I've been here a good few times and it's always the best night! The comedians are brilliant, and always up for the craic and get to know the audience. They do great drink & food deals. And there's a photo booth. Would highly recommend to everyone. And it's in the middle of the city centre also.

Myself and Sandra (my wife) had a really great time.
All the comedians were varied and had really funny takes on life and had us both in stitches.
The MC was fantastic at his job and got the whole crowd really up for having a great night.
At first, I was confused of the use of phones to order the drinks, as I thought everyone being on their mobiles, would take away from the mood in the room. Over the duration of the show, it was obvious that having staff only dropping the drinks off to the tables, actually cut out any fuss of ordering, looking for change, paying at the bar etc like in a normal pub.
Anyhoo, it was a really great night,
I'll be telling my friends and we'll be back again soon.

PS. Sandra thinks the comedian from Baller (Patser) with the hat, actually looks like an Irish Jason Statham 🤨 😂👍

Incredible comedians everytime I leave the place after a show my sides are in bits and I'm repeating jokes for days after.
Cant recommend going here enough. I go with my wife whenever we can and we haven't had a bad night ever.
The venue is in a great location with lots of access by public transport and the staff are great.

The laughter lougne is a brilliant event and great value. The 4 acts and host were all brilliant fun from start to finish and had everyone in top spirits. They all act brilliant with the crowds! The staff are super helpful with any query and from the start to finish you can jus tell how much effort the host, staff, acts etc. Put into the show. I've went 3 times now and will definitely be back again.

As always the comedy itself was very good and staff were friendly. there's a new ordering system, you can't buy a drink at the bar only online, we waited over an hour for 3 drinks from the most popular drinks menu, I asked multiple staff and eventually got the drinks.
another person asked for drinks and again had to order online, waited over half an hour for these two drink's.
really poor service and did put a damper on the night. if forcing people to use an order system then make sure it works first. Very disappointing experience

I attended a show in the Laughter Lounge last weekend and I couldn’t recommend anywhere better to go for a night out in Dublin. Not only were the acts incredibly funny, but the service was outstanding. Considering the sudden reopening of events in Ireland, the laughter lounge definitely had their act together! The venue is immaculate and all in all the whole experience was a delight.

My housemate and I attended the 27th Nov show and it was a fantastic night! It was my first time in the Laughter Lounge, and I'll be quick to return. The acts were fantastic, and the entire team, both at the door and on the floor treated us very well. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!
