First time ever in this venue and left very impressed. Again old school decor and very unusually for a pub lots of religious statues!! Excellent service and a very interesting and varied menu. Another one that I have on my list to return to

Bohemian atmosphere. Funky decor. Local artists work on view. Pretty good selection of draught craft beer and stout. Nice selection of gins. Also has beer garden- too cold out there for me but great for smokers. Busy in the evenings, Good buzz and fun with a group of friends.

This Pub is such a lovely place. It has the most chilled out atmosphere and friendly staff. It is also dog friendly in the outdoor heated and covered courtyard which is a big plus! Almost every time I've been here people are hanging out and there's at least one little pooch hanging around too! The pizzas here are great -... More

Have been going to Fionnbarras for years but starting to be put off by the fact that in recent weeks every time I've been in there they've put on very annoying hip-hop at ear splitting levels.Normally they have a pretty good music choice.

Some places are cool and work hard at it. And then there are the places that are destined to be cool naturally. Fionnbarra's Pub falls into the latter category. Its naturally laid back atmosphere makes it a welcome den for all, not just the hipster brigade, although they are well represented too. I loved the atmosphere and would have given... More

Located just behind Georges Quay in the city centre. Great vibe in place with an excellent beer garden - mismatched furniture but a great place on a sunny day.

The bar is impressively stocked. Massive gin selection , nice whiskey selection, nice selection of local and more popular beers ales and stouts. The bar is decorated in a traditional vs modern quirky style with little private fjord areas. The beer garden is the selling point. Vibrant coloured statues and tables , arm chairs and sofas! And most important for... More
