    We saw GBH on Somebody Fees Phil and decided we’d try it. While there’s always some skepticism, this place did not disappoint. From the cozy interior, exceptional service, and delicious food, it surpassed our expectations and was our favorite meal in Ireland. We had the wings, seafood chowder, boxty sampler, and brown bread pudding. Everything we tasted was beyond delicious. Our server Giorgio was so friendly, gave great recommendations and was very attentive. Definitely try this place!

    Food was great, staff was very friendly. Price/quality of food was good. Have been here twice and will definitely go back. Fish and chips is very good and you should definitely try the Boxty Fries! If you can, try the Guinness bread! (It comes with soda and beer bread) it’s the best in Dublin!
