In the eternal struggle for 'Best Irish Pub', there are several contenders. Durty Nelly's seems to always come out well, but to be honest, we do prefer the Trinity.

It doesn't try hard to look Irish, It doesn't deliberately grunge itself down, it's willing to blend modern world with old world and pulls it off with aplomb. Yes, the Trinity is one of our favourites.

Nestled in the heart of Surry Hills, it's patronised by young professionals, students, travellers and the general slightly bohemian mixture that you often find here. The bar staff are very friendly, and the verandah out front is a big draw, even if half of it is non-smoking these days in deference to Sydney's overbearing restaurant laws. The food is reasonably priced and heartily measured, and a summer afternoon out front can be amazingly enjoyable.

Cal from Ireland
Good food, but expensive. The pub is very open so you don't get a friendly "snug" atmosphere that I relate to irish pubs. Recently bought by two english lads, I think, who don't want any irish pubs. I lived for three years around surry hills and rarely drank here. Go Shakespeare!

Michelle from Ireland where else??
We lived in Surry Hills for just under a year and many a night was spend in the Trinity bar, the 2 for 1 meal offers on a Monday night were the business, just the incentive to allow us poor backpakers to save a few dollars ... or spend it on beer.

I like this place so much, that I've relocated to be closer to all the action that goes on at the Trinity.

Lived in Surry Hills for a year and was in the Trinity bar more than I was in my my own house. Love the bar the punters and the staff. The food is got to be the best in Sydney for price, quality and quantity.

Pub's are for drinking alchole. Alchole is not good so pubs are not good.
