Excellent staff and atmosphere
What a great place to come and chill out for a few hours. The decor is bright and well-spaced out. The staff in particular were really welcoming, very clear and and informative. Would recommend.
Great experience! Lovely staff and music and spotlessly clean and safe had a great time thanks so much!
Amazing food! Staff were friendly! Will definitely be returning!
Hi, Thanks for this, sounds like you really enjoyed your visit. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Very organised set up, great ambience with music playing in the background, lovely food, not a lot of choices when it comes to dessert but still an overall great experience
Thanks for the feedback Myra. So glad you enjoyed the atmosphere in our new outdoor dining area. I'll pass on your comments on desert choices to the team. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Great atmosphere! Great food! Greet staff!!
Excellent, food and atmosphere was excellent
The service was extremely slow. After 40 min waiting for our second round, we decided to leave
We booked the table for 2 hours. We have been ask for the last order after 1h15 minutes. Not even 30 minutes later they were clearing the table to push us out
Hi Aideen, Thank you so much for this feedback. We want all our visitor to leaving having had a great time, so it is disappointing that you felt hurried. We take your comments onboard to better the experience. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Lovely pints 🤌🏻
Food was great, service was good, nice atmosphere, DJ was too loud but then I'm a bit old - the 80s tunes afterwards were spot on.
But on arriving for our 6 o'clock booking to be told that last orders were 7pm - sort of turned it all into a bit of a rush. This is a place to be savoured and enjoyed - not rushed. So beware the last sitting of the day people...
Hi Darren Thanks for leaving your comments, sorry you felt rushed on your visit. Last orders are a 7pm on a Sundays but our staff always say this on arrival. We appreciate and take your feedback onboard. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Couldn’t have enjoyed it any more than we did
The place was great! It’s amazing that they have a live DJ too. Drinks are very reasonably priced and we loved the food too! I’ve already booked a few more visits via OpenTable.
Hi We really appreciate you taking the time to leave this review. Glad you enjoyed our DJ playing on the night.. it definitely adds a nice vibe to the experience. Looking forward to seeing you back again soon! Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Loved this place, funky and colourful, good tunes in the background..
We where seated at the back, where we where forgotten about and had to ask for menus, cutlery, napkins, water and to order..
Friends had burgers and pizza said it was tasty.
I had dirty fries and sticky ribs, ribs where tasty but fries had too much stuff on top and for a tenner wasn’t worth it..
I’d recommend it and would go back.. ask for a sit at the gate..
Thanks so much for letting us know how your evening went. I am disappointed to read that the service was poor and that you felt forgotten about. We want all of our visitors to have an amazing time so your comments are appreciated in helping us better the experience. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Would definitely come back again, would love to stay all day.
Hey Jack Thanks for the five stars and letting us know you had the craic! You are welcome back anytime! Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Amazing attentive staff, kindly moved us out of the sun when another table became free, great customer service. The daily special fish and chips brioche bap should be permanently on the menu!
What a lovely review to receive. It's great that the staff accommodated your request to move. I don't think any of us can last in that sun for very long! I'll definitely mention your comments on the brioche to the wider team. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Excellent evening there with a small group for my birthday. Really unique feel to the place. Drinks were excellent and food delicious, great way to spend the birthday thanks for looking after us
Staff were brilliant, super attentive and friendly. Nice food and drink!
No experimental or one-off beers available, which is the main attraction of the open gate brewery. Only hop house 13 and other, more generic beers available. This was not advertised online or mentioned beforehand. Very disappointing.
We went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and I have to say it was the nicest date night we’ve ever had . The staff were fantastic the food was great the drink was great the night on a while was fantastic
So surprised I've not been here before. The Staff were amazing and so welcoming and the pints of guinness were lovely. Will definitely be back. Thank you!
Hi Emilie Lovely to hear you had a great time and that our staff and of course the Guinness were amazing! You're welcome back anytime. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Excellent service, great food and quality drinks. Very well organised around Covid-19 protocols so felt quite safe. Highly recommended.
Hi Patrick Sounds like you had an enjoyable time when you visited. Since opening in June the health and safety of our staff and visitors has been our upmost priority so we are thrilled to read your review. Hopefully you return at a later date. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Really tasty food, quick service and felt very safe. Lots of space between tables and good safety protocols! Will be back soon!
First visit to the GOGB brilliant service brilliant food just loved it… will be back for a return visit
Hey Fiona, Delighted you enjoyed your recent visit with us. We would love to welcome you back again soon! Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Friendly service, delicious food and nice place to dine
Our evening started off wonderful great atmosphere food was beautiful. BUT don’t take last order after 7 and start shouting to finish up, asked could we take it away and we were told to leave it there 😳 close on a Sunday at 8 whole place cleared and locked up at 7.45pm and we were left standing out side in the rain. Very poor customer service extremely disappointed ☹️
Lovely beer garden and beer menu, Shannon took really good care of us!!! My only suggestion would be a few more vegan food options!
Hi Gabriela We're are happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us. Delighted that Shannon was a great help and I’ll pass your comments regarding the vegan options on to the team. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Didnt try the food but drinks etc and service was fab! Horrendous day weatherwise but nonetheless staff did the best they could and were very knowledgeable about menu/beers on offer. Would definitely return!
Hi Thanks for your lovely comments on our staff and service. Such a pity the weather was so horrible when you visited. Hopefully if you come visit again the sun will shine! Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Came up from Kerry for a girls weekend and this was by far our favourite place from the entire weekend. The decor and seating arrangement was colourful and spacious. Music was bang on. Food was incredible and extremely affordable. Would highly recommend trying the stout espresso martini. I’m not one for writing reviews, but my sole reason for posting this is to highlight the staff and how amazing they are. We arrived a half hour before our booking, but they still managed to accommodate us. Every staff member we encountered were relaxed, friendly and beyond helpful. Disappointed I never grab their names because they deserve so much credit. The male manager from Wexford was a fantastic host and a great laugh. Anybody looking for a good spot on a Saturday night with great food, music and service, this is the place to go. Genuinely can’t recommend it enough.
Hi Wow, thank you so much for this review. It is so lovely to read that we were by far your favourite spot to visit all weekend. We have a tremendous hardworking team so your comments are really appreciated, and I will be sure to pass them on. Rob from Wexford is always so helpful and never fails to put a smile on our faces! Thanks again for the comments and hopefully you visit from Kerry again. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery.
Food was amazing. Had chips, chicken wings & garlic focaccia. Good pint of Guinness too. Service wasn’t the best. Also quite noisy so was hard to have a conversation with the person next to me. Overall, I would go back.
Hi, Thanks for letting us know how your evening went. Sorry that you were disappointed with the service and the noise levels. We take your comments onboard. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Love coming to the Open Gate, always a great night out. The venue is perfect, safe & well spaced out, and the service is excellent - thanks again to Shannon, who never let us go without a drink 👌 Looking forward to our next visit already!
Hi Kevin, We really appreciate you leaving a review. Lovely to hear that you enjoyed our outdoor venue, and that service was excellent. I'll pass on your comments to Shannon, she'll be delighted. You are welcome back anytime! Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Lovely lovely staff and great location!
Had the best night thanks to the wonderful staff and the ambience. Food was delicious and the pints of Guinness were divine. I cannot wait to return, great to see people enjoying life again.
Hi Sinead, Thanks for this lovely review. Great hearing our staff, food and drinks were top-notch! You're welcome back anytime. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
What a fabulous evening. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food delicious, the drinks great. We’ve not enjoyed ourselves as much in too long. Thank you to all @ Guinness Brewery from 4 very happy customers
A thanks for such lovely comments. It's great that you enjoyed all aspects of your visit. Come back anytime to sample some of the new brews on offer in the coming weeks. Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Really enjoyed our evening, so much so that I am going again with other friends tonight!
Hey Laura, Thanks for leaving this feedback. So lovely to hear that you will return, hope your friends have a great time too! Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Disappointed with food
Great Guinness of course and different beers brewed in situ. Totally recommended.
Would go again, Such a chilled place. Great music.
Good food, good prices and the service was really high standards
Staff were lovely, food & cocktails were delicious. Service was a bit slow, we only managed 3 drinks in the 2 hours we were & kept trying to catch the attention of staff to order more. Otherwise perfect
