This is a re-opening (July 2010) of an old pub in the area of Stoneybatter in central north-of-the-Liffey Dublin.

The team who have taken over the pub have a passion for craft beer so you will not be offered Guinness on tap. This is very brave of them! They do offer Belfast Blonde, Galway Hooker, O'Hara's stout, Headless Dog and Trouble Ór (all Irish craft brews) on tap as well as Leffe blonde and Staropramen. They have a great selection of bottled beers also.

The atmosphere is quiet (no TV) with music on in the background. They have ambitious plans to run the place as a gastropub, and it will be interesting to see how this pans out (they do not have a full food menu straight from startup).

It is a great addition to the beer scene in Dublin, though might suffer from it's location being slightly off the beaten track.

EDIT: the nearest tram (Luas) stop on the Red line is "Museum" and then it's a short walk up Blackhall place and it's located on your right.

SECOND EDIT (August 2010): I can now report that they do seriously good food !

I visited on August 10th and was excited to see this new addition to the craft beer scene in Dublin. They have one of the widest selections of Irish made craft beers that I found and even had a few not seen at the Bull & Castle. The list was rounded out with some interesting Belgian, American, and British, but I was all about the Irish (no Guinness, Miller or Budweiser to be seen!). A bit off the beaten path, but not too far of a walk North of the Liffey from the Porterhouse or Bull & Castle. This should be a new must stop for anyone searching for craft beer in Dublin. I didn't try the food, but the limited menu looked good, and was also focused on Irish grown/produced produce and meats. I look forward to trying it on a return visit.
