It is always good to be prepared and so I talked a few people about my trip to Dublin and managed to gather some important background information about the city, namely locations of the good breweries and brewery restaurants. Today I actually found out that our lodgings, Townhouse of Dublin is only two to three blocks away from Messr Maguires on Burgh Quay. Mess Maguires is one of the brewery restaurants Sami Lappalainen of Gastropub Restaurants, here at Tampere, suggested. Other suggested restaurants or small/mini breweries included Porterhouse both in Dublin and Bray and Dublin Brewing Company.
