“Maximum Irish experience”
Review of The Confession Box

The Confession Box
Ranked #7 of 297 Nightlife in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 June 2018

Sit in the lower bar where the Irish drink, away from any stray tourists, and listen to the craic. Refreshingly free of mobs of foreign Temple Bar visitors and one of the few genuine Irish pub experiences left in downtown Dublin.

Great place to experience the authentic Irish pub atmosphere. Friendly staff and great music. We met a couple locals who made our first night in Dublin memorable. They say it is the second best Guinness in Dublin. We only planned to stay for a drink, but stayed much longer. Highly recommend it.

While staying in Dublin this pub was recommended to us by some locals. It was so friendly and the locals were so welcoming and helpful with suggestions of other pubs to visit .The two ladies behind the bar made us feel very welcome .

What a great little pub to grab a pint and catch up with a friend. There space is actually small but there is two levels of seating. They had some entertainment that was quite enjoyable.

Dude, Michael Colins drank here regularly to hideout from occupying forces! They are friendly and have traditional music as well as good prices. Upstairs window seat, keep a lookout!
