Got here at lunchtime today, place was not busy. Ordered after what seemed an age standing at the bar. Food arrived was mediocre, staff surly disappointing to say the least. Went to check on something at the bar and staff kept walking past me whilst checking to see if I was still there. Had been looking forward to the visit... More

I love going here for a few drinks, especially in the summer when you can sit out on the balcony and enjoy the views. They have a great selection of craft beers, at the usual rock bottom prices. I would avoid the food though, it's not the best. Service can be a bit poor and the tables are often a... More

Popped in for a beer and a burger when it started to rain. Lovely view over the harbour from the upstairs balcony. Beer was an excellent price for Dublin. The burger was a mediocre and the service shocking. Never got the salt I asked for. Worth it for the view and the beer but don't expect much if you want... More

This is a nice place, good atmosphere, rather informal and fun to go. I had the 3 strike chicken (spicy chicken wings and some more) and this good. Good beer and good vibe in the place.

This is the sentral place to go in Dun Laoghaire. We tried this for 3 purposes: Breakfast, dinner and a night out. Breakfast was good, both the traditional Irish, and Eggs Benedict. Good value for money. The dinner was not that successful, a burger menu and half a chicken. It took less than 5 min to serving and that because... More
