Stayed at the Ferryman on a Thursday through Sunday, and it absolutely did not disappoint, in all aspects. From a few pints of excellent Guinness with great service on arrival, a nice room, excellent breakfast, and overall good atmosphere, our group was delighted with the experience. Nice location also, out of the way of the main city centre thoroughfares, but... More

Great Irish pub with excellent decoration creating a good atmosphere! It was the first pub I visited in Ireland and the Guinness did not disappoint. Excellent for after work drinks.

I went to this bar with some friends of mine visiting Dublin. Just a few words: staff is deadly unfriendly and looked like annoyed by the thing that some of my friends had not the proper English-speaking accent! Really disappointing. This is not the way how to treat customers, especially tourists! On top of that, toilet is stinky and dirty.... More

A brilliant pub, slightly out of the way. An old traditional pub with a great range of local beers and of course, a great pint of Guinness. Two bars one upstairs and one down. Had sky sports on during early afternoon but without any sound which was a plus.

Nice, cosy, traditional style pub just across from the CCD. Friendly service. Near Christmas so music was festive, along with the outfits of many of the customers. Not a huge amount of seating but we had no problem getting a table. Music not so loud you couldn't talk as well.

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Dublin, The Ferryman ticks all the boxes. It's location on the Quay is ideal. The centre of Dublin is a short walk away. It is close to the theatre and the city tour buses go right by the front door. It is a genuine Dublin pub, not an Irish... More
