apple crumble buonissimo da provare almeno una volta , il pub è tipico irlandese non turistico, anche la carne e squisita e i prezzi modici

Great place for a hearty meal. Friendly service and a genuine feel. Reasonably priced: a generous helping of homemade mash, two sizeable bangers, dark, tasty gravy and caramelized red onions plus a pint of Dublin Blonde will cost you under 20 €. Recommended!

Great atmosphere, feels like a real Irish pub. Beef and Guinness casserole is yummy. The prices are fair for Dublin.

Had a wonderful experience here at this cozy and authentic Irish pub. Ordered the Beef and Guinness casserole and it was hearty and delicious. My friend got the fish and chips and was very satisfied with the portion size and quality! (It takes a decent amount of food to fill us up). The chips were spectacular as well (thick cut). This place was recommended to me on the plan ride over from the states "best chips in town and not too expensive" and his advice was spot on. I don't give out a 5 star rating for just anywhere and I think this place warrants just that. In met my standards of exceptional service (friendly and knowledgeable) exceptional food (both quality and quantity) and reasonable price. Highly recommend and would return for a second visit without hesitation! More...

I had the Celtic stew (a special), my wife the chicken supreme, just what we needed after a day exploring Dublin. It was one of the best pub meals we've ever had. Beer and atmosphere was excellent, both the locals and staff were very welcoming and friendly. Certainly a place we'll go to again on our next visit to Dublin. More...

Stopped for lunch and a pint.  They have a small selection of ready to go stews and other items as well as a cook to order menu.  We jad the irish stew and the beef bourgeoisie of the ready to go menu.  Both were hot and delishous. Good choice for a quiet lunch break.  Was not at all busy. More...

Really enjoyed stopping off in Brannigans after a day of sightseeing and what not. Perfect spot to decompress and relax from a busy day and it's right off the city center. Nice local pub that has a locals feel and an after work pub. Great selection of beers and microbrews. They even had Tuborg beer on draft! old school.  They have a nice size menu for food from appetizers such as nachos, wings, to mini sausages to meals like burgers, stew, fish n chip, roast beef and daily sandwiches and soups. Bartenders were all very friendly and great table service. Prices were reasonable on the euro side. If ever in Dublin again, I shall be back! More...

Stopped in here one day after getting caught in a storm, and I'm glad I did! This place is as local as it gets. The bartender knew half the guests by name, and the atmosphere reminded me alot of the mom and pop places back home. As for the food, I had some pork, potatoes and veggies, and a pint of Guinness for just under €15. Not bad considering the size of the portions. All in all, I was very pleased with my meal and would happily return on another visit More...

I love Brannigans for lunch. Nice and quiet at lunchtime. It gets a few older local people and the odd person working in the area, but thats it. Great if you want to chat, without the background noise.Menu is decent and made-to-order sandwiches are great value. More...

Il Brunningans e' il primo pub in cui ci siamo fermate a bere la prima sera del nostro viaggio-vacanza Dublinese. Siamo arrivate molto tardi, all'incirca verso mezzanotte, tardi per gli standard irlandesi perche' a quell'ora smettono di servirti birra e gli sgabelli si rigirano sopra i tavoli per permettere al pavimento di essere spazzato ben bene. Ho adorato questo posto per l'arredamento fantascientifico e nordico. Bufali appesi alle pareti come trofei ma anche scafandri di ferro di un secolo fa e tanto tanto legno caldo che riempie e  scalda le ossa congelate dal freddo Dublinese. La guinnes eccellente, perfetta ovvio! La clientela e' esclusivamente locale, infatti entrando tutti si sono stupiti di veder entrare due straniere, due italiane qui dentro e subito si sono fiondati verso di noi dei  muratori dublinesi con il loro slang incomprensibile e ci hanno invitato al tavolo con loro per rimorchiarci! Da morir dal ridere, ad ogni modo ci tornerei molto volentieri perche' era tranquillo e rilassante e sopratutto da stare li dal primo pomeriggio fino a chiusura a parlare con i locals! More...

Never been to this spot till Thursday last. Lively little spot and this was only around 5pm. There was a great mix of age groups from the young twenties to a cool granny with her pint of Swithwicks and her shopping.Nice little spot, only thing making it stand out from any other Dublin style pub was the American wild west theme that they had going on. Quite odd to see the mounted head of what I think was a bison next to a Guinness sign. Oh there also was a scattering of old rifles around the walls. I think the owner must by a cowboy and western fan as a lot of people from the 1950's generation of Ireland were. It reminded me of my uncle as he knows them all and there also was posters of John Wayne, so I guess if you take in the cultural context of the older generation of Ireland, it all makes sense.Makes you wonder what the pubs will feel like for a Yelp reviewer 50 years from now... Will Lady Gaga's music and bright neon coloured memorabilia sit as comfortably beside a Guinness is good for you sign? Who knows. More...
