“brilliant pub”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Very central, brilliant atmosphere, friendly, helpful (and patient) staff. On several levels - we were in a private room which was perfect for a reunion. Love this place.

“A great traditional Irish Pub”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

D&H is one of Ireland's greatest pubs, frequented by politicans, celebrities, businessmen and every other type of drinker. The service is prompt and friendly, the food is basic fare but always good and suitable for any budget. It's not favoured by some ladies and not a spot for stags or hens. If you want to see one of Irelands most famous pubs, Doheny's is a must.

“What a pub!!”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

We recently spent a lovely few days visiting the delightful Dublin when we stumbled across this fantastic pub. It was down the road from our hotel and on the day we were due to fly home. We wanted to make the most of our last day by watching the Gaelic Football Final in a nice pub! What we found was much better than that. Not only was the guinness spot on, we had a sandwich made for us which was not on the menu and the staff looked after us even though the place was heaving, even explaining the rules of the game!! A must for anyone visiting Dublin, can't wait to go again.

“Very Authentic Irish Pub Experience”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

If you are visiting Dubin by all means you should avoid the Temple Bar neighborhood and head to some of the more authentic pubs for the quintessential experience. Doheny and Nesbitt should be at or near the top of your list. This is a bit of a walk from city center but worth it. Most of the patrons seem to be locals, but you are likely to meet some tourists as this establishment is listed in most top ten Dublin pub lists. The bartenders are very friendly. Some of the regulars - not so much. The back bar is nice and gets busy quickly. There is music on Monday nights which is worth checking out.

This was a wonderful pub for dinner and drinks and music. We enjoyed the time there more than any other pub we visited.
