You really get what you pay for here- low quality canteen style food that you thought went out of fashion in the 60s-70s. Watch out for the extras- we were charged €3.50 for 8 chips.

I have eaten in the three tun often since opening and its consistantly ok, it offers excellently priced food, a broad selection, excellent drink value, average service and food quality. Its always pretty much jammers but never get much of an atmosphere out of the place no music or barely any tvs for sport. You order youreslf at the bar, they often go out of a certain meat or fish, and you are better off ordering startermainsdeserts independently because they come basically all at once which i really didnt like.. You really cant beat the price though, basically a dinner and a drink for 10e. I´m sure ill return, its handy if your not in the mood for cooking or looking for a cheap meal..

Went to Three Tun Tavern with some friends over the weekend. Was exactly what I expected - Cheap food and drinks, but not a great atmosphere. Food is decent enough quality, considering price. Once we finished eating we left to go somewhere a bit more relaxed. They really need to turn the lighting down later in the evening and encourage people to stay on and have drinks. Great for quick bite with family or friends and then get out again!

Very basic food. Scampi came with about 5 chips! Husband had the burger, again basic. The booze is cheap though so you can go out and have dinner reasonably. Family friendly too. I will go back but just because it's cheap!

Seriously not fun. The place itself has been refurbished and it was clean. The food was basic, reasonably quick to arrive and fairly instantly forgettable. The teenagers would repeat the experience while the middle aged adults would not.

Amazing value for food and it's great to see the old Tonic bar back occupied. I had the korma and it was horrible, microwaved ready made meal. Came with a piece of Naan that was cold. I think they were having some teething problems on the service front, because it was non existent. I would go back again for the great value and maybe we got unlucky on the service!

Having eaten in Wetherspoons' pubs in the UK previously, I kind of knew what to expect with the Three Tun Tavern: decent pub grub and drinks at very competitive prices and it pretty much delivered. The decor is pretty much what you'd expect from a Wetherspoons pub, partly wooded floor, partly carpeted, with numbered tables for ordering and pictures and decorations relating to the history of the area. The ordering process is pretty straightforward, you note your table number and then go and order at the bar. The menu is quite extensive and everything has calories beside them for those that want to watch how much they're eating. What sets Wetherspoons apart from pretty much every other gastropub is that each dish is served with a drink, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, with only a €2 surcharge for alcoholic. This is great as you don't feel ripped off if you want to have a drink with your meal. The drink selection is also a nice change from your typical fare. A good selection of ales, Irish and American craft beers, a couple of Irish Guinness alternatives and even wine on tap. We ate here on a Tuesday which was steak club day so my partner ordered the 8oz striploin steak with peppercorn and Jameson sauce, chips, mushroom and peas with a glass of rose and I ordered the gourmet BBQ hot dog which was a huge sausage in a soft baguette garnished with pulled pork and cheese and it came with chips and 6 beer battered onion rings and I also got a small 330ml can of one of the American craft beers. Everything was great for me and very filling and my partner enjoyed her meal also. We both had a chocolate brownie sundae for dessert which was lovely but very rich and probably a bit too much after our big main meal. The staff were very attentive and helpful and I could tell they were making a good effort as the place had only been open around a week at this point, hopefully this continues! Altogether including drinks and dessert the whole thing came out to about €32 for both of us which is incredibly good value so I'll certainly be returning. My only complaint was the lack of music in the pub. This is pretty much a Wetherspoons policy to not have music but I don't really understand it as even some low volume, generic music helps to create an atmosphere and everyone can still talk. That said, it wouldn't put me off coming back and I look forward to Wetherspoons expanding in the republic as it's about time pubs start getting a bit more competitive with pricing.

Went for Sunday lunch, plenty of tables so no bother getting a seat at lunchtime, order and pay for the food at the bar and it gets dropped down to you - fine pub fair, nothing too fancy, grilled meats, chicken wings etc - but very reasonable prices for food and drink (mains about a tenner, only €1.50 for a coke and €2 for a pint with food) and fine selection of UK ales and craft beers.
