Went here for breakfast and had the eggs benedict with some white pudding. It was delicious and presented really well, probably the nicest I've had. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed and the service was good. My friend was on his phone the whole time though which I thought was very rude, although it's probably an indication that he highly rated the free wi-fi. I would definitely go again but with better company.

My favorite not-too-touristy stop just off Temple Bar at the Ha'Penny bridge. You won't be disappointed.

Excellent welcome and service. We had to wait an usual time for the lasagna of our daughters so the manager came to apologize and offer drinks on the house. Food was fair, for a pub in temple bar, save the Irish stew that was far below expectation. That was amply compensated by an Irish Folk duet that put the house of fire!
Would have been a five star save the stew.

We ate on the third floor - a group of 6 - and everyone enjoyed the meal they had. We did the beer tasting before dinner, a number of different Irish beers. A great way to taste a number of different beers. After dinner the party atmosphere on the first floor was everything and Irish pub is known for. Many dejected Garth Brooks fans the night we were there in late July - but all in party mode.
