Part two of the Dublin posts takes us to Sinnotts Bar by St Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre! We visited on a Sunday at lunchtime, so it was quite busy, but we didn’t have a wait for a table which was ideal because, as always, we were super hungry…
This pub was recommended to us, and we probably wouldn’t have visited if we hadn’t previously known about it because it’s quite a sneaky location and is hidden by the distractions of the shopping centre and The Gaiety Theatre that surround it!
‘The original pub stood at No 3, South King Street, which is now part of the Shopping Centre. Don’t be disheartened by this, Sinnott’s has one of the rarest and most genuine pub atmospheres in Dublin.’
When we went into the pub, it was super busy because the football was on, which just added to the appeal and atmosphere! We squished into a table at the side of the bar and got some menus and ordered some Guinness.
To continue the tradition of the weekend, a portion of fish and chips and two beef roast dinners! As you can see, these dishes were beautifully presented and arrived to the table super quickly, which we didn’t expect!
The roast beef was honestly the most tender roast I have ever eaten… It was so soft and literally fell apart when I touched it with the fork. The vegetables were cooked well, but I think needed more, especially as we ordered a side dish of further veg.
The general ambiance of the pub was great, it was super busy and buzzing, the large screens to show the football and rugby went down a treat and it seemed like the place was full of locals enjoying their Sunday with their families.
The service was also really impressive, with the waitresses and bar staff working hard to please everyone, and being genuinely friendly at the same time. This was such a good recommendation, and I would definintely suggest a visit for a drink, food and to watch the sport on a number of screens!
