It was a dinner arranged by Trafalgar.The mutton soup was great! Somehow the Guinness beer tastes best here! (I hv tried a few pines at other restaurants) The staff here were extremely helpful.

Nice open pub with good service. Decent menu and the food was reasonable - nothing special but ok. Piped Irish music was a little loud for my taste so pick your seating away from the speakers.

We walked down from the Ashling Hotel for a Pint and some dinner. My wife had the Salmon and I had the Fish & Chips. Both meals were excellent! The Guinness was perfect! The prices were very reasonable! Service was GREAT! Highly Recommend!!

Dublin Airport us approx 15 to 20 minutes away by Taxi but this of course is highly dependent on the time of day. At rush hour it is a lottery but by evening time it's much easier to get about Dublin.
