Old school, that place has been there forever and I got the feeling that I had stepped backwards in time. At 16:30 the place filled with men in suites, so cool. No music, just people drinking and fraternizing. And the bar was excellent and less expensive then the bars on Temple bar district :) Visit this place for good 'ol... More

Kehoe's is an old well known Dublin pub. It's a drinking den, so don't expect food or fancy cocktails. However if you want to soak up an authentic Dublin pub, this is the one.

Kehoes was everything we thought an irish pub would be. Only thing missing was a man with fiddle but I guess that could happen too. Thursday night must be the equivalent to friday in liverpool with drinkers still in their business suits late into the evening. Be prepared to stand, be prepared to be crushed into a corner but be...

Routinely stop here whenever in Dublin. One of the classic Irish pubs. Guinness is far and away the best there is. Don't miss it if you are in town.

Usually call in for a pint of the black stuff after work on a Friday. Many a nights activities have started here! The Guinness is second to none and if you are looking for an authentic pint of the black stuff in an old fashioned Irish pub this is the place for you. Can get very busy outside in the... More

We stopped off in this pub on a recent shopping trip. It was about 3pm and while there was quite a few with the same idea, there was plenty of space. The bar staff were excellent friendly and helpful.

We stepped in just to have a pint and relax. We found a splendid pub with knocks all over. We sat upstairs in a nearly empty room with its own bar. Charming pub friendly staff.

I've been meaning to check this place out for a while now and i wasn't disappointed, Had a quick Sunday afternoon pint and it was one of the nicest pints of Guinness I've had in Dublin. Would definitely recommend for a day time scoop on a Sunday afternoon.

A good place to go out on a weekend with friends. Even though it's packed, the bartenders are pretty quick. A bit too packed, but it was a Friday eve.

Nothing better than finishing work and slaughtering a few pints here. Always a good crowd in and the pints are always top notch. One thing though, please get proper pub crisps to match the proper pub atmosphere please please please. Other than that, one of my favourites! ❤️

Thank Ciarán M
