Starbucks make the worst coffee ever but their Frappucino's are quite amazing. That's the only reason I go to Starbucks. I am pretty sure this was the first Starbuck's in Dublin [well the city centre anyway]. It's dreadful. Full of foreign students and tourists hogging tables with no drinks being an inconvenience and a hindrance to everyone else who has... More

Standard Starbucks just like the other chain. Reasonable prices and friendly staff. Iced tea is very nice

While the service was very good and we were able to get a seat without too much trouble, the coffee did not taste very good, the place could use a cleaning and the bathrooms definitely needed some attention.

There was once a time that I actually did like Starbucks. The coffee was decent and the staff was mostly friendly. I don't know what happened, but one day I noticed the coffee machine had changed, in pretty much ever Starbucks I went into, and from that day the coffee was just awful. Somehow, they've managed to make the Americano... More

Just down the street from Trinity College, this Starbucks is a good spot for a late afternoon or evening cup of java. The baristas are professional and efficient so your order, no matter how complicated, will be brewed nicely. The downside is that it is an Irish version of an American café so has the feel of an international chain.... More

We went inside for a quick queue for coffee but ended up staying longer cuz we had to try their goodies. There's a lot of couches to make you comfortable where you can read the newspaper while sipping your Irish coffee. The place was busy all day long .

Wouldn't normally go in a Starbucks never mind review it, but this one was in the right place at just the right time (an independent cafe nearby had no free table and we were gagging for a brew). Good service from attentive and helpful staff, and a nice day to sit out front and watch Dublin pass by.

They were so kind and helpful in this Starbucks! They even told me my American Starbucks gift card and app would work there. The receipt had a code so I could use the bathroom, which was a blessing, since there aren't any public bathrooms in that area. Our drinks were so good and the chocolate coins, too!

I spend an early morning here, watching the stressed out morning crowd get their coffee from the very friendly staff. dDespite a technological breakdown, so payment by Starbucks card was not possible, they remained positive and helpful. As all Starbucks, this one has a mixture of big soft armchairs and regular tables and chairs, and a very pleasant and peaceful... More

Let's face it, anybody who says they love Starbuck's coffee really doesn't like coffee. So.... if you hate coffee then you'll love this place. I prop up my Macbook and pretend I'm writing a screenplay while supping on an over-priced sugary Pretenducinno - don't worry guys - it's kiddie's coffee loaded with sugar! Very close to lots of things you... More
