Irish
Dublin's most famous pub, certainly in a literary sense, with its Joycean associations. Always classy and fashionable. It's the original Dublin gastropub at over 100 years old.
Anybody who is familiar with Dublin pub food will be aware of Davy Byrne’s food reputation, in which seafood is the speciality.
If you visit the premises at lunchtime and evening time, you will witness the huge trade which is done in fresh Seafood, Wagyu Burgers and pub classics like Fish & Chips. There is also a full range of Salads and Sandwiches to compliment these and, as often as not, you can enjoy Oysters and Guinness.
The classic Gorgonzola sandwich with a glass of Burgundy as mentioned in Ulysses is available every day.

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate strollers/buggies indoors at Davy Byrnes but subject to availability, we can at our outside terraced area. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    The food was not something special. Avoid the Guinness pie which is just a stew covered with a pie leaf. Also do not take the ham and turkey dish. Both meats are thin slices like the ones we use in sandwiches. Good environment friendly staff although they are not from Ireland.

    Place was dead, no atmosphere, turning away customers at the door who would have filled the place and created a better vibe. Table was poor, three small circular tables put together. We’ve been there a few times, not sure I’d ever go back after the experience.

    Lovely atmosphere but perhaps lights down the back dining area could be dimmed to make even better. Caesar salad dressing bit salty and chicken wings were obviously ready a while before being served but steak/oysters,/goats cheese tartlets were excellent. Waiting staff were very warm and friendly which really added to the experience.

    Nice atmosphere. Great food. Attentive waitress until her shift finished and then we felt a little forgotten, no one took over - it felt more like a pub, needing to request drinks and no offer of dessert and when we asked the kitchen had closed.

    Overall very good and I would recommend Davy Byrnes, especially the reasonably priced menu, good food and attentive service. My only reservation being that we were a table for 4 and seated at the far exit, which at times was draughty, but no way did it spoil our lunch.
