Nice atmosphere, good range of beers. Because it's so popular it can get a bit too crowded. They have a few board games. Music is a bit too loud.

The staff and the overhead music made me want to stay no matter what was on tap or the food menu. Just frozen pizzas baked up for you and pints. Did I mention the great staff? So friendly!

Good beer selection, and many are described on their blackboard. It has a fun atmosphere. It is a good place to watch a game. A bit funky with lit candles and old furniture. Rathmines is a cute neighborhood along the canal.

I absolutely loved this place. Looked like few old living rooms have been put together; a lot of candles, perfect intimate and home-like vibe. They have a nice choice of beer and if you can´t decide which one to pick the lovely staff will help...More

Not a bad bar as they go if you like up cycling and smelly old furniture. Staff were slow at service and did to much yapping. The manager Shane was very unwelcoming I think I sat in a regulars seat WAD.

Went in here as was close to our hotel - slightly different to the pubs near home! Great choice of beers and excellent service once you'd managed to get the busy bar staff to notice you. They seemed to be doing tons of things at...More

Living close-by I drop in now and again, usually before it gets crowded. It's a young trendy crowd that frequent this place. There's a reasonably good range of beers on offer at reasonable prices and the staff from my experience are super friendly and helpful....More

A bit out of the city center, this is a great place for some drinks. A kind of more modern pub, with a broad range of beers and cool atmosphere. You can either sit inside and play a game or sit outside on the terrace.
