Bloomsday was great. Having the TV on, when there was lovely Joycean music, made no sense. The man at the door was impolite when asked to turn off the TV.

Off Grafton Street, Davy Byrnes is a charming restaurant with good service and delicious food. Fish and Chips were above the norm and the soup and sandwich I had were very good.

Davy Byrne's is just off Grafton Street. It's a great pub with huge historical significance as Dublin's famous literature stars used to meet here. Art Nouveau in design. Worth visiting.

I'd recommend Davy Byrnes for anyone looking for a peaceful break from the crowds. The staff are really good and the prices are very reasonable for the city centre.

As a group of friends we met up here at lunchtime and enjoyed our snack lunches all washed down with some great Guinness and lagers. The service was good with a nice atmosphere.
