Yes, the 51 has a warm, welcoming ambiance and great food, but the best part about an evening there is enjoying the wit and wisdom of prized bartender Conor D’Arcy! Should you be lucky enough to be there on a night he’s working, you’ll be...More

This fine old pub is the well-deserved winner of an award for its Carvery. This is proper Carvery food, the way it used to be. Unfortunately, this is now a rarity in Dublin pubs but The 51 continues to give the people what they want.

Went to watch a match and availed of the €12 food and pint deal. Stayed for several more pints afterwards. The 51 has improved abit since I was last in it. Decent grub and good service.

Tasty hot plentiful carvery dinner. Efficient service and no skimping with the dinner. Deserves its Leinster carvery of the year accolade. Only downside is no desserts available.

From their carvery to their selection of beers and whiskies, you can't go wrong at the 51. Pre and post game crowds from the Aviva nearby are always lively and fun.
