“very good meal in dublin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

We went to eat in this resturant after we saw it pretty crowded for several evenings. It's really worth waiting a bit to eat here. the food is great and the service also excellent. According to my boyfriend the fish dishes were excellent. I also could choose between several dishes despite my vegetarianism and everything was well cooked.

“So good, we went two nights in a row”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

We visited this restaurant on our first night in Dublin, after a day of travelling that was pretty exhausting. As soon as we walked in the door, we felt right at home. We were lucky enough to be seated at a small table near the window, and especially lucky to have Bobby as our waiter. The food was excellent, portions were huge, and the beer was just what the doctor ordered after a long day. I had the fish and chips, my companion the corned beef, cabbage and champ. The next night, after perusing dozens of other restaurants on Trip Advisor, we couldn't come up with anyplace we'd rather eat than Gallaghers, so went back for a second visit, which was just as good as our first. By the time we left, I felt like a regular. Highly recommended both for food and atmosphere.

“Our Favorite Restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

We have literally eaten all over the world, and this restaurant is the one that we always talk about. It's right down the street from the Temple Bar, and is hard to get into sometimes due to its popularity...but we are always so excited to get in.

Being American, we may have no idea what traditional Irish food is like, but the boss always gets the corned beef and cabbage (which she raves about) and I get the Boxty with gravy and steak inside. I've had their other boxtys (which were all good), but the steak was my favorite.

Try this restaurant, and you won't be disappointed.
