About us

For over a century and a half, the pub has been celebrated as the social heartbeat of the village. Steeped in local history, it has thrived through many incarnations and owners since the 1800’s. Some of its loyal customers today recall a time when it had a different name over the door (such as Kennedy’s, the Concorde, the Hideaway, Streets etc.) before it became Rody Bolands when Ciaran O’Meara acquired it in 1994.


  • The atmosphere in the bar seemed homelike. The bar staff was very helpful and friendly. We ordered two soups and two mains(shepherd pie and Guinness steak pie).They were very tasty and portions were significant huge. We got stuffed! Its worth leaving temple bar for this place, as it has great value. And 99% of visitors so you feel real Irish pub atmosphere! P.s. rugby final in london eas quite a thing to watch in this pub

  • Visited on Saturday 6th December after a college open day. Had the best lasagne ever with homemade chips. Others had pizza and joint of the day (turkey & ham). Great value for money. Really friendly waitress. Will definitely be back.

  • Been coming here for years & heard they had a new chef & menu. Wow was I surprised. If you like your Hot & Spicy chicken wings this is the place to go. Also had an amazing 8oz burger. This is easily the best place to eat in Rathmines...
