Went for lunch and some Guinness on the Monday that bars were allowed to reopen. Well kitted out for COVID with perspex screens. Fish and chips were excellent, delicious big bowl of soup too.

Diner here our first night in Ireland. Jet lagged and exhausted, we stopped at the first pub we came across. Had a GREAT full Irish breakfast and the fish/chips. Both delicious.

Podczas każdej wizyty w Dublinie odwiedzamy lokal. Wspaniała atmosfera, świetny wybór drinków. Nie jedliśmy w lokalu. Bardzo miła obsługa. Często trafiamy na wieczory z muzyką na żywo. Polecam 10/10 During each visit to Dublin, we visit this pub. Great atmosphere, great selection of drinks. We...did not eat at the premises. Very nice service. We often go to evenings with live music. Recommend 10/10More

Decided to meet some friends here for food as I’d read some very good things about the food. First negative was the poor service, we were left waiting ages to order food, we had to get the attention of the lounge girl and it wasn’t...even busy. I ordered a €23 rib eye to be cooked ‘medium’, someone else ordered same, when it arrived it was a very miserable looking well done piece of meat. The only thing that stopped me sending it back was that the chips were nice as was the onion ring but unfortunately the portions were not very generous and I felt ripped off. One of my friends got curry which didn’t look or taste great. No one came over and asked if our food was ok. Don’t think we’ll be back.More

5 of us looking for a bar with good pub grub, we found McLoughlins which already had a great rating but it deserves even better, great house beer, amazing staff (Síofra in particular) and fantastic food, chips were amazing! Food was well above your normal...pub standard! It raised the bar for all others! The bar is friendly, with a lovely atmosphere which is bright but cozy! We cannot recommend this place enough! We will 100% be back! Absolutely one of the best for anything you want from a bar! Love it! Enjoy!More

Popped in with my partner on a cold Saturday night for a bite to eat and listen to some music that had been advertised on the billboard outside. I ordered vegetable soup and bread and my partner ordered fish and chips. When my soup finally...arrived after 30 mins it was boiling and unrecognizable as vegetable soup. More like a spicy puree. Aside from that it was tasteless and far too spicy for me to eat. My partners fish and chips was very mediocre and luke warm. The fish looked like it was a week old and didn't taste much better.The pub was full of locals chatting and drinking in various corners and aside form my partner and I there were only one other couple who didn't seem to be locals We asked the staff several times when the music was going to happen and they kept changing the time. We waited till 10 pm only to be told there would be no Music on at all. Needless to say we will not be coming back !!More

Rude waitress who pretty much ignored us. One person in our party had their pint glass explode and other than a basic cleanup nothing else was said.

We came here for dinner and some traditional Irish music on a Thursday. From the moment we walked in until the moment we walked out the door the service was amazing! The bar manager was so helpful and took great care of us. I had...the seafood chowder and it blew the royal marine chowder away!! I will definitely be back!! Love this place!!More

Had arranged to meet a friend here. It was Sunday and when I arrived I wasn't sure if they had opened yet for business as a member of staff was cleaning by the door. As it was raining I asked if I could go in...and use the bathroom. She said " No, it's only for customers," turned her back and continued cleaning. I was about to explain that I wasn't sure if they were open and that I was meeting someone but she was so rude and dismissive I decided to continue on to Fallon & Byrne where I was welcomed by nice friendly staff, good food and was allowed to use the bathroom!More
