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.
