Description
This unconventional bar was named after one of Dublin's great characters, who was a dog catcher in the 1950s, who is fabled to have had a head the shape of a lemon, covered by a stubble of hair. ... Read more
Several scenes of the film "The Commitments" were filmed at the bar counter here. The place has lots of character, friendly service, and above-average Irish pub grub.

My favorite spot! Never had anything less than a fantastic meal here. Everything is well seasoned, cooked to perfection, and the service cannot be beat.

I had one night in Dublin and stumbled across The Hairy Lemon while looking for a place to eat. It is divided into half a bar and the other half a dining area. The service was good, portions big, food tasty, and the Irish coffee after dinner was excellent. It definitely helped take the chill out of the December night. This is not a fancy place but a good place. It serves its purpose at a reasonable price. Clean, friendly, and bustling. I'd definitely return. The fish and chips with mushy peas were great!

Cozy spacious bar with traditional food and good beer. It's a good meeting point for watching a match or even spend the night out!

My three friends and I fell in love with this place. Their food is amazing, the beer is prime and the staff made fun of us every second we were there. It's absolutely amazing. Each one of us had our own three course meal and I've never been happier. You must try their Guiness meat pie and the bread pudding. :)
