Read the history- interesting back story. Cool little Irish pub on the upper west. Look for the Harp!

My gal liked the fact that this place was an Old School New York bar (e.g. not dressed up for a younger crowd), but I found it to feel sketchy. Gruff bartender obviously knew that we were out-of-town people and made zero effort to welcome us. Had 1 over-priced drink and never went back.

Spent a few years in and out of the city and this bar is oddly what I miss most. Long live the Dublin House and I hope to make it back someday.

Has some nice beers and the place is well suited to a quick pint or two. Nothing too amazing. The barman seemed a bit grumpy but that didn't bother me too much.

Close to our hotel we walked in to get a beer. Small cozy Irish pub with cold beer and good happy hour. Enjoyed it, will be back

The only positives are the cool neon sign and the location. Negatives: Rude, indifferent bartender. Filthy men's room. Blaring TV's. Short-shot drinks at higher than average NYC dive bar prices. $7 draft beer. Hundreds of better places with 20 blocks.

Arriving in New York at our hotel The Lucerne, we had to wait one hour for our rooms, so we went for a small walk and tried the Dublin House bar nearby. Several draft beers, cocktails and whisk(e)y's at your choice. On old bar atmoshere. But if you like it, and we did, you will come back.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
