Description: The Dubliner doesn't just look like a piece of Ireland-it actually is a piece of Ireland. Before getting shipped across the Atlantic Ocean to its home in the Gaslamp Quarter, the pub was manufactured on the island by O'Sullivan Interiors. What's more, it's based on an authentic pub whose roots stretch back to the early 1700s. Guests can experience this homage by sidling up to the Irish oak bar, or toasting themselves next to the cast-iron fireplace in the Victorian Lounge. Of course, the food and drink are likewise Irish-inspired: beer-battered fish and chips, Guinness-braised beef, and an Irish lamb stew loaded with potatoes, onions, carrots, and fresh Colorado lamb. On certain nights, the pub buzzes with trivia competitions, karaoke performances, and lively sets from local bands. Join us for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Desserts! We also have a great Irish brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 9am - 2pm!

Nice place to have a Guiness and some eats. Happy hour has lower prices but we were disappointed that they eliminated the Shepherd's Pie from the Happy Hour menu.

We came for lunch on a Friday. The restaurant wasn't busy at all. I ordered the Jumbo Dublin burger with corned beef. At $14, that seemed a bit pricey, but it was good. Service was friendly and prompt. And, the interior decor was great; it was what I imagine an Irish pub might look like.

There are many so called"Irish Pubs" in Downtown San Diego. This was the real deal. Atmosphere,bar staff,and live band,all Brilliant. Haven't tried the food,but will do. Dublin itself would go some to beat this pub

4 friends from Ireland spent 2 weeks travelling California/Nevada and by far the best food we ate during the 2 week trip was here. The draft beer is very good as well and the waitresses/staff are very friendly and helpful. Came back for breakfast the next morning and it didn't disappoint. A little pricey but well worth it.

We popped in to sample the Irish bar. Both of us went for a Guinness, but it just didn't taste right, not horrible, but certainly not like a Guinness should taste like.

Good to see poker on TV, don't see that often.
