Very good restaurant. We really enjoy our dinner.
And when you're finished with eating you can go downstairs to have some drinks and enjoy traditional music.

Awful experience! The waiters were rude from the very moment we entered.

When we asked the bill they even requested a tip saying it was by law while clearly this is not true in Ireland!

I will never go back again!

Great place for an "authentic" Dublin pub experience. I use the word authentic because there feels like there is a bit of showmanship, but actual Dubliners are in the crowd. Live music in the pub and the restaurant on the second floor had piped in Irish music, not to say that's a bad thing. If you can, while visiting Dublin stop here as well as other pubs in the Temple district.

What a gem of a place in the heart of Temple Bar!!!! Great food(especially in their Upstairs restaurant and utterly incredible music by live musicians downstairs. We are a couple of professional music educators who know quality when we hear it. We went twice and heard two completely different groups that were virtuosic!

Oliver St. John Gogarty provides a great experience for the new traveler to Dublin and, like us, the 5th time returnee. The third floor restaurant offers fine dining that is delicious and with a fine selection of wines and great service. The second floor offers traditional music while you can enjoy your pint and great pub food. And the first floor offers music and tv while you enjoy the revelry.

Your waiter told me I had not booked when I had booked. He was passive aggressive and make comments about our food portions. My friend had strawberries for dessert and when she asked for sugar he committed loudly WOW you want sugar with all that! Disappointed as I brought my French friend and mum but it was embarrassing.

Nice Irish pub with a fun atmosphere. We were there over St. Patrick’s weekend so pretty insane but the food is nice and they manage to accommodate people cheerfully and quickly. Well known and deservedly so.
