“not even dignified of one star.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

We went for new years eve there, the place wasnt even full, and the security guy that was staying at the front door not in the george street but on the otherside. He was extremely rude, pointed his hand showing us we could not go in even though my two other friends he let freely go in. He said some swear words to us and my friends that were in had to go out as we wanted to stay together for the night and spend this at hogans, hoping that it was a nice place to go. We were extremely bad threated by the security guy. Its unacceptable the behaviour of the guy and ill make sure none of my friends will EVER go inside this place again. Its the worse in te world. And the worse ive ever been too. I was never so bad threated in my whole entire life as i was there. Make sure you never go there. Very dissapointed with service and behaviour of the staff.

“One Of My Fav Bars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

Love this bar,it feels like a local bar except you are in the city centre.
The type of crowd you get is normally 30 and upwards.with a mixture of Dubs,country people and foreigners.
Has a nightclub downstairs which is ok but normally stay upstairs as it opens till late.

“From what I remember great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

As a tourist I was itching to get away from the horrible temple bar area........ Hogans was lovely a slice of perfect Dublin with a great clientele, expensive drinks and surroundings to match. This was what I was after so it was perfect from what I remember of it. Great dance floor downstairs and open till late. A must visit for people on a long city break at the weekend.

“Love Hate Relationship”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

Liked: Getting in early and it was relatively quiet, the group of 20 could chat in small clumps and beer quality is as good as you'll get anywhere else. There is plenty of standing space.

Disliked: It's positives can also be negatives. Limited seating and it seems the ace that people don't move on from, so when you are without a seat, it's likely to Stay that way. They don't have craft beers, which is opposite to what you expect because the staff are quite cool. When the DJ plays, it get LOUD, talking over.

Overall: I like Hogans. It attracts the cool people, not the posers.

“Not impressed, but hey, you can get a pint there!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

We found this pub on purpose because it was recommended by Anthony Bourdain! We have no idea why. The staff poured our drinks just fine, but they didn't say anything beyond the amount of money we owed. The atmosphere was nothing special and didn't even seem all that traditional Irish. Sure, you can get a pint there, like you can anywhere else in Dublin, but you might as well spend your time somewhere with more atmosphere and with a staff that has more personality.
