One of the best Resturant/Bars in Dalkey! I've come in for lunch and dinner a few times over the past few months and have never been dissapointed. There is a great atmosphere here, the food is divine, and the staff are all incredibly helpfull and friendly. I would highly recomend the Magpie Inn for anyone looking for somewhere to visit while in Dalkey. It is well worth your while.

We (my partner and I, and some friends) came here last week for some food and a couple of drinks.

Arrived early Saturday evening. We had the fish cakes, homemade soup, and a selection of the breads / dips / hummous for starters. For mains we had chicken, steak and fish - the salmon is to die for! It really was restaurant quality food! The bill amounted to a little more than your average "pub grub", but the quality of the food far exceeded our expectations and was well worth every penny.

Superb selection of wines, beers / craft beers. The pub started to fill up after our meal, which provided a great ambiance to an already delightful evening.

We stayed on until near closing time. The staff were very attentive, pleasant and made us feel very welcome. This place is a must to visit if you're around the Dalkey area - arguably the best pub in the village!!

Highly recommended, and look forward to visiting again real soon.

Arrived in with a group of colleagues and our partners at about 10pm on a Friday night. The staff 'eyeballed' us as if they were unhappy to see custom. I was joking with a colleague and was shouted at by a bar man 'no swearing' (Em hello ?? It's a public house on a Friday night !!) Then the barman came over to our table (we were having a fun night and laughing and joking) and told to 'keep the noise down' ... the staff were rude, the service was bad, the atmosphere was dreadful, the pint was absolutely awful (Carslberg and Heineken were both dead). The selection of drink was poor, too. (no Coors or Bulmers on tap) and overpriced ... We stayed for one drink and left - 'The Club' pub up the road is a much better place - go there ! Avoid this establishment. There is much better places in the area.
