Quality of Drinks
Standard corporate fare for Dublin, but a good pint of Guinness.
Victorian era pub with dark wood panels, mirrors, etched glass, but quite cosy, mixing intimacy of space with grandness of detail. Leather upholstered seating and a narrow room with a long bar along it. Tiny snug to the right of the entrance.
No tv (there is but it’s rarely used), no music, no jukebox, this is a palace of simplicity: drink and conversation abound. Popular with academics and those from the college nearby.

Not much to add here. Snacks?
Value For Money
Standard city prices – expensive.
Close to the heart of the action but just off enough to benefit from the breathing space. On Dublin’s Victorian pub crawl and with true classic fittings and a familiar appearance with wood panels, ornate details and some preserved stain glass. The snug is a nice feature too. There is an almost scholarly vibe to the place without music, tv, jukebox, and the atmosphere is created through the ambience of social conversation and the craic from the bar staff.
