Merrion Square Pub - Dublin
Foley's Bar and Restaurant: Merrion Square Pub Foley's Bar and Restaurant Review

I went in here for lunch based on the suggestion of a hotel doorman in Merrion Square. He was right! The atmosphere was good. Dark, with lots of locals. And the beer was cold. I also had an excellent wild mushroom soup and some tea. All this for about 7 euros!!

Don't bother - Dublin
Beshoff's Restaurant: Don't bother Beshoff's Restaurant Review

I wanted to try some fish and chips and this place looked good, but unfortunately I didn't like it too much. It seemed liked dressed up fast food. The fish didn't really have much flavor and the prices were pretty high for what you get. I was told by an American friend to try the curry chips. They weren't bad.

Favorite Dish: Curry chips

Address: 7 Upper O'Connell Street, Dublin / 14 Westmoreland

VT meeting!! - Dublin
Little Caesers Palace: VT meeting!! Little Caeser's Restaurant Review

This is where we met for our VT meeting. Great choice, Louise!!

The food was good, but of course, it was more memorable because of the good company. It was fun getting to know Louise (IrishFem), Peter (kili99), Suzanne (Suzanne M), Orla (orlikins), Dave (dmrtn) and Gabby (gabsblack).

Sorry the photo's so dark.

Favorite Dish: I had the Insalata di Caesar to start and then had the Penne alla Vodka for the main course. Both were really good.

Address: 1/3 Chatham House, Balfe St, Dublin 2

Comparison: about average

Directions: From Grafton Street walking toward St. Stephen's Green, take a right on Harry Street, past McDaid's pub and it's around the corner to the left.

Phone: 6704534

Price: US$11-20

Since 1840 . . . - Dublin
Bewley's Cafe: Since 1840 . . . Bewley's Review

Bewley's is definitely a Dublin tradition. It's a chain, but the one on Grafton Street is the best for ambience (Westmoreland Street is good too). The sticky buns are good. I also stopped in one evening for a cup of tea, which comes is looseleaf tea served in a small teapot. Very good.

Favorite Dish: The tea is good. You can order it online at http://goodwoods.safeshopper.com/15/852.htm?748

Good pub - Dublin
Neary's: Good pub Neary's Review

Neary's was once a popular hangout for certain literary figures including Brendan Behan in the 1950s. The interior is really cool and I like the exterior facade shown in this photo. Stop in for a pint or for lunch.

Address: 1 Chatham Street

Directions: Near the Gaeity Theatre

Old, soggy environment - Dublin
Kehoe's: Old, soggy environment Kehoe's Review

Just off of Grafton Street on Anne Street, you'll find this pub. Here's what I wrote in my journal about it:

"The bar is dim and the wood is worn. I ordered a pint (that's all you have to say in Ireland: I'll have a pint- and the bartender knows you mean Guinness). The beer was good- cold and smooth with a frothy top that feels thick and sweet, though that can't be true. There were nooks and crannies all over the place. A tiny little room just when you walk in that should be for one or two, but is intended for four or five. I walked upstairs and noticed that the stairs were carpeted as if to cover up the unnevennes or rottenness of the wood. The wood felt damp and soft and it was a somehow cozy and uneasy feeling as I walked up. I finished my pint upstairs and began talking with a girl who goes to Trinity."
