  • Dawson Street is one of the most important streets of the city: from St. Stephen's Green and Trinity College, it reaches almost overlook the Mansion House and the St. Ann Church, as well as many restaurants and shops.

  • Some quirky places along this Street - particularly the pubs at the top end by Stephen's Green. The Masion House is a key site for any tourist. Be warned, the street is being dug up at the moment, but...  read more »
  • We had lunch here after flying all night DC to Dublin. Needless to say, we were jet-lagged and could easily have had a bad experience anywhere. However, the staff were very friendly and courteous. The food was better than we expected, we really enjoyed our meal. The casual atmosphere and sofas were exactly what we needed to sit down and enjoy a casual lunch to recharge our batteries.
  • This place was amazing!! We sat at the back bar and had a few drinks. There is a bartender there, with a shaved head, who is definitely the best bartender I've ever seen. Try to find him and watch him make drinks. Awesome time!
  • Hip place in town! Very sharp service, amazing cocktails and drinks!! Would definitely advise to go!! Locals place but also tourists! Amazing place for fun!!
  • I'm not entirely sure how i feel about 37. Some nights you have a great time and others you just don't want to be there as the crowd / atmosphere is just odd. It's worth checking the whiskey bar at the back and trying a couple of the cocktails.
  • Nice place and great food, can get very warm inside, and the patrons can be a little on the upmarket side, or at least think they are. Nothing that would ruin a night but worth noting.
