This is the most touristy pub I have ever been in! But it is a great place to eat or have a few pints. There's a good atmosphere, lots of old bric a brac to see, the food is delicious and the staff are friendly. It also just happens to be on top of a mountain so there are great views. There is live Irish music and dancing every night, Ive heard it's a great show but have yet to see it. This place makes the perfect end to a day of sightseeing around the Dublin mountains.
Favorite Dish: The pasta salmon dish is fab, and the brown bread is to die for!
I have never eaten here, but have visited for a pint of guinness or two on a sunday!!
The Views are superb, and although it is a very touristy pub, it has a fab atmosphere!
Traditional music, the food apparantley is fantastic, and the beer is good!
It boasts being Irelands highest pub, and is located in Glencullen south of Dublin.
Well worth a visit - Im not sure if there is any public transportation here, we always drove - which would be a better idea so then you can explore the beautiful surrounding areas.
You don't have to eat here. Come and have a drink in one of the most unusual places you will ever be! Almost every famous person to visit Dublin has been here and they have the picture on the wall to prove it!!! Lots of Irish people come here every night not just tourists.Fantastic sea food!!! You don't have to have a full meal-just have a starter or dessert if you like. This place can be as formal or as casual as you care to make it!!
After eating go to the river-dance show next door! Each evening there is different live music to support the river dance. I have been to the show three times already and I wasn't disappointed.
Favorite Dish: All the sea food is very good. If you are not too hungry share a kilo of mussels and brown bread between two for about 7 Euro.
OK so you're planning to go to Ireland and you've probably seen the flyers and reviews for this place. So its full of tourist but locals go here too. My uncle who owns an indian restaurant in Dublin said that he came here often too so that must say something for the food. In fact the food is great but the atmosphere is even better and like all places here in Ireland everyone is dead freindly.
This place is difficult to find if you're driving there in the dark as we found out. We allowed plenty of time and were still an hour late for our reservation (it was Valentines so we had to book). Probably best to take a cab here then you don't have to worry how many pint of guiness you do justice.
Favorite Dish: We had the seafood platter for the both of us which was very nice. The puddings are good too.
Johnnie Fox's prides itself on being 'the highest pub in Ireland'. A trip up the Dublin mountains to this pub should certainly give you the chance to immerse yourself in Irish culture. It also happens to have won the Egon Ronay 'Best Food Award Winner' for four years running, as well as the 'James Joyce Pub Award'. The atmosphere is everything you'd want in a traditional Irish pub and - despite the traditional choice of ingredients - the food is better than you'ld think.
