Previously when we travelled to Dublin we visited Slatterys and had the best experience, the food was absolutely top class, price reasonable and staff very friendly, which made us visit twice more during that trip. Not surprisingly when we went again, which was the following year, we headed straight to Slatterys for a meal, and what a shock we got. I went straight down to the toilets, and found a work man down there and the ladies toilets out of order, he said to go ahead and use them which I did and in there was work mans tools and mess and it wasn't a place I wanted to be alone for a period of time. Back upstairs we ordered food and was disappointed that the menu had changed so much, though things like this are to be expected. I ordered lasagne, chips and salad and it was very ping ping food, edible and nice but nothing like the lovely food we have previously had there. We noticed signs up everywhere saying that the toilets were for customers only, and we soon learnt why..... people were coming in one door, down to the toilets, then back out of the other door, this happened on a few occasions and when my partner went down to the gents toilets he discovered the reason was they were buying and selling drugs there. This kind of thing is found everywhere and no huge shock but when you're away on a holiday type weekend you don't particularly seek out these kind of places to spend your time. Have to say won't be returning.
