Over for a hen weekend and popped in here for our pub crawl. Wow !!! The live singers were amazing, joked along with us & included us as our bride to be was dressed up as leprechaun so she was on stage whilst they were singing. Never ate here just came for the atmosphere & boy was it worth it.

Ended up here after hearing some brilliant live singing whilst walking past. Great atmosphere the whole night and really friendly people. Only issue was that it was INSANELY busy so frequently got moved or banged into but wasn't the biggest of deals. Staff could have been a wee bit friendlier but I think as it was so busy they were...

I had booked a table for 5 at this restaurant by email and I'm glad we did, although it was quiet when we arrived at 6 it quickly filled up. The service was great and our server was really friendly. Love a bit of Irish banter!! Food was fantastic, we all had something different and everyone loved their meal. The... More

Great pub to sit and enjoy some love music and drink a pink of Guinness. It was busy but that adds to the atmosphere. Food looked good too.

Good spot for both afternoons and evenings for a few pints of Guinness. Gets very busy on the nights and can be shoulder to shoulder. Met people from all different countries and had a great time with some live music. They also run a restaurant next door but I've never been there. Top spot in the heart of Temple Bar.

Been here twice on two separate occasions I have visited Dublin and have not been disappointed! The atmosphere is electric on a weekend. Live singers both Friday & Saturday (the two days I've been) and everyone is dancing and singing along. The only downside is it's sooooo busy it gets a bit annoying getting knocked into all the time but... More

This place probably isn't what you'd call an 'authentic' experience, and it very much caters to the tourist crowd. BUT saying that, the food was excellent value and tasty, the portions were very generous and the service was faultless. Overall, not a bad place to eat at all.

Thank Rosi H
