Lunch was ok I guess portion size was small. Had items marked on the menu as gluten-free and then they wouldn't be gluten-free. They do not even serve fries. Needs a bit of improvement considering the competition in the area

Arrived into this pub after a concert in vicar street. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, good range of drinks. Karaoke was on when we arrived a gentleman was singing time to say goodbye. He was unbelievable, such a voice, really enjoyed this pub.

Came in here to meet friends on a Monday lunch time. Found the staff very unfriendly. Pint of Guinness wasn’t good, my friend had to stop drinking it and order something else. Found the atmosphere so uncomfortable we left and got coffee down the street.

Tom Kennedy’s bar (on a thursday afternoon) is like a communityhall. The only music heard is from a small tv near the entrance. Besides the sounds of 80’s music channel, there’s a silence that kills your eardrums.

Excellent little local off from the main tourist hot spots. Cheapest pints we had all weekend and a great quiet place to drink in the afternoon before heading to the main part of Dublin later on.
