I like this pub because I can meet with a group of friends and be sure that we will have a table, even if it is busy, because the pub is huge and has lots of tables. The music is not loud at all, which makes it a great place to have a conversation.
J.W. Sweetman has their own brewed beers, about 5-6 different kinds depending on the season, and offers a taste of all of them in 1/3 pint glasses for 14€ – great for anyone who likes trying new drinks like me. It is a pity I don’t like beer, I’d be happy if they had the same for ciders!
This pub is right next to O’Connell Bridge, near all the bus routes, a perfect location.
Prices are the usual for Dublin City Centre, about 6€ a pint/bottle.
I love the atmosphere in this pub, they have candles on many tables, which help with lighting and even heating in winter.
Pro-tip: In winter go to the top floor to be in the warmest spot, all the candle’s heat ends up there 😉
