There are quite a few of the old pubs left in Dublin, but this is one of the best! Full of locals although tourists are made very welcome here as well. Always busy and lively, not to be missed!

I've given here 5*'s before. Love so much about it. But yesterday I saw another side. It was mid afternoon. Unless I tell it this way it makes no sense. Though it may seems petty. It went like this; Me: "Sorry, but this pint is...More
