The only pubs that are dodgey are the ones with drunk aggressive teenagers, as they are more likely to kick off that elder folks.

The dodgier the boozer the more chance of bumping in to some 'characters'.

If you behave yourself and keep yourself to yourself, you'll have no trouble whatever boozer you decide to scoop in.

I would have a similar take on it.

There is only one pub I know of that I wouldn't venture into Morrissey's on Cork Street, But if I did I'd say I'd find the usual dipso oul lads propping up the bar that would talk to anything. 

It's probably only dodgy at certain times when certain individuals are in with the lads

Are you confusing that with Morrissey's on Cork Street? I went in there to watch the Charity Shield in 2007 as the moth was in the Coombe just after having our first child.

An absolute sh*thole. Full of families of the biggest scrotes you could imagine to meet. Felt really uncomfortable in there. One of those places where everyone knows each other. Some knacker was in selling clothes that I presume he'd just robbed in town.

Was gonna say Morrisey's on Cork St. as well. Taking your life in to your own hands going in there.,

If only you'd taken a left and headed up to Lowe's, Franko. Gem of a pub. Just the right kip/characters/creamy pints ratio.

Although forgot you don't drink Guinness! Seriously, a pint in there will change your outlook on things.

Muff grow a set and venture in ,what's the worst that could happen?

Is there any really big kip/dodgy pubs in around the city centre ?

Jesus I'm only enquiring about the place LOL

Bit hard to hop in when I'm in a moving vehicle. I'm never really in that part of town but will land in for a scoop if I am sometime. 

About 99% of my locals in Dublin are sh*tholes but the pints are cheap  LOL

Went in for a piss once on the way home but didn't land into the bar. Very close to dolphins barn and never had an iota of hassle anytime day or night I went through it.

I lived for a year on Cork Street, just around the corner from Morriseys, when I was 21. I used to watch matches in it all the time, especially but not exclusively the early kick off ones. I remember the Ronaldo goal against Fulham in 2007 when he ran half the pitch and scored the winner in the 88th minute, the place went mental. Good times.

I never had the slightest bit of bother. Now, I am a United fan, and so were most of the clientele (when United matches were on), so there was no hassle. I didn't watch United v Liverpool games in there, mind.

Still, the people were decent enough and I never felt threatened.

Is the 'Confession Box' still going? I used to enjoy the craic in there, used to be a few characters and decent stout.

Nah, they kick you out of the hospital for a couple of hours. Quiet time for mothers and babies.

Yeh, it's still there. Been a while since I was in it but they have sessions upstairs. It was quiet enough the couple of times I was in there. It might get some of the Sackville Lounge crowd which closed down recently.
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.
