It's just around the corner from our Parliament Building, Leinster House, and the strange creatures who inhabit those premises - Teachtai Dala (Members of Parliament), Seanadoiri (Senators), Journalists + associated "hangers-on" love to meet here and solve...More

Great traditional Irish pub full of passionate rugby fans. Watched an entire game here and drank Guinness during the European Cup. Felt like a local!

This historical neighborhood pub is a little out of the way but worth a visit. Our pub food dinner of sliders, Shepard's Pie and Caesar salad was good and filling. The service was excellent and friendly.
