    Loved this place…. We were here over 3 hours!!! Sat outside in the sun for a drink before eating, price no different to the rest of Dublin. We then went upstairs for some food… heads up the platters are enormous. We had 2 between 3 of us and could easily have managed with just one. We then moved into the sampling section if the beers and got to try a variety of different things which made a lovely change. The sun was coming down outside and the comfy chairs on the back were just made to sink into and chat the evening away.. as we did. Loved all of it.

    Great beers at great prices. It's a shame Guinness doesn't sell most of them elsewhere. Nice staff, too

    I loved the opportunity to taste/sample a number of Guinness's experimental(?) offerings. I'm hopeful they might become available in the US. The food was okay, nothing special, but that really wasn't the reason for the visit.

    Food was excellent and selection of drinks was good, the service was not great. The servers didn't show any interest level and were difficult to get to order drinks
