“My favorite Dublin Pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

This is my 2nd trip to Dublin and I love the pubs. This one is still my favorite. It is usually packed with tourists but isn't that what the Temple Bar area is all about? Ground floor is usually packed but if it's good trad Irish music then wander up stairs. It's smaller but you may find it a bit more relaxing. The food served is what us Americans call Irish food and it's good and not as expensive as many other nearby pubs and restaurants. But the music is what's it's all about here. If you're thinking of the music pub crawl, this is where you begin. Cheers

Been here nanny times, but the last visit was taking one if my European colleagues on his first Dublin visit. Atmosphere is fantastic as is food and drink. A must visit when you are in Dublin.

“Free Chicken vs. 32 Euro Doubles”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Great atmosphere in Oliver St. John Gogarty's Pub, with live music and friendly staff. There were free bar snacks making the rounds that the staff provided, forget the peanuts though chicken legs and wings were on the menu Summer 2013! Peanuts would not get you far in terms of a round here either unfortunately, we paid nearly 32 Euro for two doubles! Would visit again though, maybe order a different round…..

“A hostel, restaurant,and pub all in one.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Running this place takes some organization. It is at least three floors of busy restaurant and bar and who knows what the hotel/hostel is like. The food was good but clearly mass produced and the place caters to larger groups rather than intimate parties.
