Another great old pub we visited on our pub crawl. Of course you have to try the Dublin made Guinness and drink it the proper way...letting it settle and get black.

Kehoes should be on the to do list of any serious drinker visiting Dublin. An authentic bar with a great atmosphere, excellent selection of Irish Whiskies and friendly, knowledgeable staff.

Wipe your feet on the way out , although not in the same league as the "international bar" around the corner the pubs must surely be "related". P.S the less said about the toasted sandwiches and the 7.20 euros a pint the better.

If you are looking for a more traditional kind of Irish pub with a good atmosphere away from temple bar area then this is a good bar to go to! Most people tend to sit outside and spill out into the street and that's where the best of the atmosphere tends to be.

When in Dublin, the natural inclination is to go into all the pubs you can. Our suggestion: Don't go into this one. With carpeting everywhere, dusty shelves and crickety chairs and stools, grimy is the only way to describe this pub. It's sometimes fun to drink with the locals - just don't pick this place with rude bartenders.

Was here on a Sunday afternoon. There was a crowd outside drinking and talking and having the craic. I sent inside to sit in the cool shade and enjoy a quiet pint at the handsome old bar. I will be back.

John Kehoe's is a fine local pub, old traditional atmosphere and superb Guinness. It's easy to spend hours chatting to locals and watching the world go by. As the bar gets busy inside, people spill out onto the pavement where the staff come and take your order.
