    An old church turned in to an amazing restaurant with great food and at night the bar turns in to a club. Amazing.It's worth trying when in Dublin.Patrick the young Irish bartender was very kind to us

    Very unique location with great live music and great food options. The outside area in very spacious and heated, the basement double up as the club after a certain time. Highly recommended!

    The atmosphere is nice, and also they have Irish music and Irish dancers as well. I went 2 days in a row and was great. The service was quite slow the second day.

    Great idea, I thought, put a pub into an old church. But poorly put in practice. The bar is bloaty and not very pretty, the staff very eager but not very helpful, the worst coffee I had in all Dublin.

    Make sure you have a table at the front as you'll be ignored anywhere else. Food is ok, nothing special. Very touristy. Only nice thing is the interior. Take a pic of it and eat somewhere else.
