    Perfect Evening! Really extremely tasty food and nice drinks (recommendation: Forged Irish Stout) for a decent price! On top one of the best one-man bar- musicians, I've ever seen. Connor was present himself and enjoyed the evening with his guests and friends and really good music!

    We came to Dublin for my partners birthday and of course he is a massive mcgregor fan so we definitely had to come to the black forge inn to try the food and the Irish strout, the place is unreal and the staff are really amazing. The food was unreal and the drinks were great you get very big portions for the amount you pay. We would definitely be back. Open one in London please 🙏🏼

    My husband and I absolutely loved our meal, the food was beautiful. I had the wings, bao buns and Parmesan fries altogether as a main, and my husband had the buttermilk chicken burger. We will definitely be back when we come to Dublin to try the steak on a stone!
