    Food was OK. Nothing special. Originally served cold, but when sent back was delivered hot. Appeared to come from a steam table rather than being prepared to order. Chicken pot pie did not have a pie crust. It came with a piece of pastry to cut up into the sauce.  Service was good.

    We visited Dublin from Edinburgh for 2 nights and ate at Murray’s both nights! So close to our hotel, food was yummy and great bands on from 8pm. Staff were really friendly and it was just a generally cosy/relaxing atmosphere! Great wee find for our trip

    Really enjoyed our visit to Murray’s. We started off with drinks and dinner in the main bar in the early afternoon. The 4 of us had various starters and mains and all the food was delicious and service very quick. Afterwards we went next door into the Whiskey bar where two musicians were playing. Later that night more music and Irish dancing was on in the main bar. When that stopped two more musicians played in the Whiskey bar. We stayed until the early hours of the morning. Great atmosphere, lovely vibe and very friendly staff who are a credit to Murray’s. We’ll be back.

    We left because you couldn’t put Leinster v Stad Francaise match on one of your screens. We went to Madigans instead. Staff didn’t seem to be too pushed about putting the match on. BTW, it was on RTÉ so shouldn’t have been a big deal, particularly for a “sports “ bar 🙄

    Had been before back in 2016 but my experience didn’t compare as well this time. Had planned for it to be a leisurely experience but felt rushed and that food wasn’t fresh when it came out just more than 5mins after we ordered. Guinness pie nice but tenders were so dry. Door host fantastic but waiter on the table didn’t really take on board our feedback when asked about the food. Didn’t come near us again in fact after we provided it. Atmosphere and drinks selection amazing especially enjoyed the Irish dancers.
