Great place for fish and chips and Irish Stew. The fireplace and local banter make this a truly authentic Irish experience.

Geared more towards tourists from further afield than the UK but great fun - the band comes on at 9pm on Friday and they are brill - don't forget your wallet like the rest of Dublin!
