Not just for tourists!!!!
Finished a wonderful night out in Dublin at Bad Bobs last night. Fantastic music and atmosphere and a proper family run business. Happened to meet half the family as Paddy Snr was celebrating 45 years of marriage to his beautiful wife...who only looks about 45!!. Lovely vibes and lovely people. A must visit while in Dublin. Very close by if staying in the Hard Rock! Brilliant night, can't wait to return 💕More
Really fun environment, lovely staff who are happy to help. Super quick bar service. €9 per cocktail, much more affordable than other bars. Live music in the evenings too. Authentic Irish pub vibes. We had tapas too which was average but good value for money.
The bar is amazing!
We were a group of friends looking for a pub with good music, Bad Bobs has it! The live music of this pub is amazing. I think this is the best bar of Temple Bar.
Service is also good. Make sure...to be there early because it will be full!More
Hi, I was able to book a table with my date of birth given, being told Bad Bobs was 18+. I had booked the table a month in advance. On arriving at the door with my girlfriend , we were only told there that you...had to be 21+. I was told it was clear, was on the website and on facebook and instagram. Not once was I told this by email, this was not on the website/instagram/facebook (I checked from across the street after being sent away and checked prior to going ) the bouncer was gave us no proper explantation or evidence and we were forced to spend a night planned a month in advance looking for another place. So overall, I would not recommend Bad Bobs to a friendMore
Nice ambiance, friendly staff.
However, the Guiness we ordered tasted like there was water added (festival beer), the mocktail we ordered (no alcohol please!) contained alcohol and when the proper order was delivered, they didn't offer a refund.
We didn't try the food.
Even with the bar having to close at 8 pm we had a great night. The singer/guitarist was superb. The food, tapas style, was good and drinks hit the spot. We will return next time we’re in Dublin’s, hopefully, when the restrictions have been lifted.
My friends and I managed to get in just fine - for a farewell of an old friend who will go back to her home country - but the doorman stopped my boyfriend, pointed to him and said -NOT YOU.
I tried to talk to...both the doorman and the security, I told them that it was a special occasion, that we had a table already booked, and they just said: THE DECISION HAS BEEN MADE. I asked why they made that decision - since they had no apparent reason to do so - and the doorman said he didn't have to explain himself for us.
My boyfriend and I (and my friends and people on the queue) understood instantly that he was denied entry because of the colour of his skin. My boyfriend pointed that out to him and he didn't even bother to tell us the reason then (if it wasn't racism).
I called the GARDA, I was crying and mad - just so frustrating to see such discrimination happen - but the GARDA didn't do anything. THEY BARELY TALKED TO THE DOORMAN. They listened to us, and then instead of questioning the doorman and the security, the doorman just said: THIS IS NOT A GARDA MATTER, and they (GARDA) SAID: ok and left.
More than never I'm feeling afraid of being a foreigner in Ireland.
When we told other friends about what happened, they shared similar experiences.
I hope the doorman, the security, the owner, managers, shareholders of that place never feel this kind of treatment and discrimination in their life. I know they won't. White people don't usually know what this is.
I have several videos of the situation in case someone wants them as proof.
Our next step is going after the civil rights to know more about what we can do in this case.More
