Good variety of beer, wine variety is okay... The flair and atmosphere was great, it got fuller around 500 and it was just nice, to be there surrounded by locals... Would go there again on our next Dublin visit...

Had great food for lunch today. However the service was abysmal. The guy beside us walked out as it was so slow. The waitress seemed newish, but that doesn't excuse the poor service. Food was great, lovely soup and sandwiches. The bread in the sandwiches was do fresh and tasty.

Service - alright, but not noteworthy. Pint was cold and delicious. Great location next to Henry street shopping, if you're in the neighborhood.

When the uglies at Pantibar outweigh the hot Brazilian boys, it's time to head to Nealons for a great pint in a comfortable old fashioned Dublin pub environment. I love this place

Nice food in a city centre location. I always pop in when I am in the city on business for soup and a sandwich.

I moved to Dublin in 2004 - have since moved back to Wales - and my first week in Dublin I stayed at the Ormonde Quay Hotel; that's sadly closed now. Jack Nealon's is just around the corner from Ormonde Quay on Capel Street... Nealon's was the first pub I ever visited in Ireland. Warm, friendly and a great pint... More

Jack Nealon's is not far from Panti Bar, so makes the place gay friendly or straight friendly (up to you). Live music from time to time. And i will say cheap enough for a pint of Guinness. Nice small place!

A welcoming pub - rugby on, pints flowing, friendly staff and clientele, and, on Pride and other theme days/nights, great criac with a guy who plays classic 80s etc.
