  • What a great place. Thankfully I walked on my way to the historic gaol, which made me notice this pub. Walked to it on my way back. Had friendly conversation with the regulars, got to enjoy the game, and right before I left I also got to catch a song. I'll be recommending this place to anyone I know going to Dublin.
  • This gem of a pub is almost hidden, but has already become a center for international as well as local folk. Great Guinness and the best are the people. You will not leave without getting to know somebody you did not know. It's smallish inside so you may want to come early to get a place to at least stand. For the better seasons, there is also an outside area that is about doubling the total space. There are snack and Toasties available. Don't expect much music that is for everything that happens after.
