Great pub, feels really cosy warm and welcoming. A nice treat after a bit of a leg stretch in the phoenix Park nearby. Managed to get a space in the snug at the back. Food is delicious (its an fxb so the steak/beef is good).Service was great, really friendly add all that up and you felt like you could while a few hours away here. Will be back for sure.
We didn't eat but it seemed popular with locals and the barman knew his customers names which is always nice. He seemed helpful and friendly to guests, able to make recommendations on the menu and just seemed genuinely friendly. We just had a pint and a glass of wine until we had to go to the train but this seems like a nice local pub.
Very warm and cosy pub that's ideal for the winter months. The Sunday roast sold out by 2:30pm so I went with the beef cheek which was great.
Just went for a meal and the food was lovely and the staff were really accommodating with the children. Definitely worth a visit
This place is unique and it is even more beautiful at Christmas!
Dined in the restaurant, upstairs. Unimpressed with the quality of the steak for the price - we had the Porterhouse. Cooked perfectly, but low quality (fatty and tough). Gave 3 stars because the sides were delicious, the service was fantastic, appetizer was wonderful, dessert was great, and the cocktails were amazing! Definitely a good experience, but I'll have a different entree next time...
Excellent food (the fish of the day is always perfect), great service, and atmosphere. Great place for a pint and a bit of high quality grub.
Brilliant place for something to eat too class food

Had the most amazing dining experience ever and it was all down to customer service. I visited with my family (including a baby and a toddler). Arrived 45min early and was immediately accommodated in the bar downstairs (which was full btw), the waitress found us some chairs to sit at the bar so i could take the baby out and enjoy a drink. The host checked in on us down at the bar and told us he was trying to get our table ready earlier than our booking time; the table got ready earlier and the staff helped carry the large buggy up the stairs. The entire staff was very friendly to us and the children, constantly engaging with my toddler. Even though is a small restaurant, mostly adults, we were treated from arrival to departure like VIP customers and as a mother os 2 small children I was dreading the experience of going for dinner at such a nice restaurant with the kids but the staff, particularly the host, were outstanding!
The food as always at FX Buckley was delicious, the starters were particularly tasty and the steak was cooked to perfection.
Came in on a late Sunday night and managed to get a seat by the bar. The food was exceptional. G&T was huge and tap water is available. The beef cheek was tender with delicious mash and little creamy sauce. The steak sandwich was delicious with strong smoky grill flavour on the steak and thick buttery chips. The sauce that came to the side was peppercorn, with what we think is a touch of whisky. Staff were super friendly and welcoming.
