Great dinner! Delicious My husband, myself and 2 young adult daughters had dinner here. Very crowded but we waited 15-20 minutes. Well worth it. We had seafood chowder appetizer and cheesy bread, both great! I had the salad with warm goat cheese and walnuts. It was delicious but with walnuts in the name I thought there should have been more. It was really good! My husband had fists day chips and my daughters had Shepard pie. Everyone loved there food! Service was fast but abrupt. It was crowded so I forgive it. Definitely recommend!
Choosing a Pub in Temple Bar So many bars in Temple Bar area. How to choose? Mainly it was a matter of avoiding the ones that were too full to be able to get through the door, or pumping out music so loud we couldn't speak or which had large groups of stag do’s and Top-Deck tourists in bad Irish hats or Viking horns. We didn't exactly choose Quays Bar. Instead we just randomly peered through the doors of a few pubs and and when we saw that this one had two great Irish folk singers, a lively atmosphere, space at the bar and was nicely full without being crammed in like sardines, we stayed. Perfect! More
FOUND THIS GEM SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND IT'S NEVER CHANGED I travel to Dublin several times a year and always make it a point to have at least one meal at The Quays. The staff and the food and the service is always first class, the Irish Stew and Beef and Guinness are to die for, fish and chips great Bangers and Mash WOW. Anyone going to Dublin please make this a must stop and enjoy a wonderful culinary delight. I took my sisters there on Aug 28 this year and they did nothing but rave about the food. Will be back soon and another visit to the Quays.
