“Nice Irish Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

After a long day of touring, we stopped at Madigan's for dinner and a pint. We were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and the food was fantastic. It was also close to our B&B and other downtown attractions.

Solid plentiful food. Irish stew, boiled bacon ,champ ,cabbage. Nice salad plates, good chunky chips. Jugs of gravy. Burgers if you want. Music late some nights. Popular. We ate there twice.

“Great Pub-convenient to bus stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Got of a tour bus at 7:00 pm after a full day on the road. Tired & hungry, we popped in to Madigan's as it is right there. Wasn't crowded & service was prompt and VERY friendly & accommodating. We only wanted only wanted appetizer type food with our Guinness & the menu was limited in that area. Ended up splitting the fish & chips which was good. Live music was scheduled for later, but we were too tired to wait. If you are planning the Wild Wicklow tour (which is great, but apparently always late returning), Madigan's is a great stop once you're off the bus. I'd give them another try when we return to Dublin.

“Sat down waited for 10 minutes without even being greeted and left”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Was shocked and how unwelcoming this place felt based on trip advisor reviews and the fact that it is along a tourist strip. I left. Very poor first authentic Irish pub experience. It's a shame too, it seemed really nice inside too. Went to another Madigans pub around the corner (didn't seem affiliated??) and was treated wonderfully.
