“The Bottler’s Bank aka The Bottler’s is a warm, friendly and classically decorated pub in the heart of Rathgar, opposite the Bank of Ireland. The snug on your right-hand-side as you walk in is the best spot in the pub and it would comfortably fit eight people. There is a large, well-decorated, covered smoking area, which has two big screens for all the sport you wish to watch (usually rugby). The staff are personable, efficient and they pull a great pint of Guiness. There are some craft beers and a good selection of whiskeys and gins also. If you’re hungry you can order a pizza from the artisan pizza and craft beer restaurant, The Revolution, next door and you can enjoy it with your pints,’a”
“The Revolution is an artisan pizza and craft beer restaurant. Their pizzas are really good, quite close to a pizza you might get in Italy. I’d recommend the Basil Faulty but I’ve tried quite a few and all have been superb. They have a wide range of craft beers and the staff are well versed on the different tastes of each beer. There is limited seating space so do book early.”
“Family run Italian restaurant. Fantastic food + superb views of swans on the canal from upstairs tables. Favourites so far: The canneloni and the coffee.”
