The best beer store in Dublin.
I don't know why McHugh's keeps winning Best Beer Selection, because it's all right here. At various times, I've bought: Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor, Schneider Brooklyner, Timothy Taylor Landlord, O'Hara's Celebration and Victory HopDevil.
The owners constantly try to find and bring in new things, and aren't afraid to take a risk - they have a New Zealand brewpub stocked at the the moment. Equal consideration given to UK, US, Belgian and German, which is rare.
If I had any complaints, they're not personal - the knowledge drops a bit when it's not the owners behind the counter. And because of the vagaries of importing, some things are gone for good once they're sold out, especially the Americans - e.g. they had Rogue 2 years ago, and not since.
Otherwise, the only stop in town. Unmissable from the Ranelagh LUAS.

I stopped into this place while on vacation in Dublin. I saw the reviews from this site and decided to take a look for myself. I was very surprised with my finds there.
They had a very good selection of beers and it was a great value as well. I was staying at the Burlington Hotel and this store was literally a 5 minute walk from there.
There was a lot of Belgian craft beers and some American craft beers as well. I was very impressed because although I was Ireland, I was able to find American beers there which I wasn't able to find in my state.
I highly recommend checking this place out if you're staying in Dublin. It's a little bit off the path, but is well worth it.

Made the walk from St. Stephen's over to Ranelagh to check this place out, and was not disappointed. Tremendous selection of great beers from all over the world, including 4 of the trappist breweries, a few bottles of Deus, magnums of Chimay, Irish micros, and plenty of top American ales. Looked fresh generally, though the bottle of Meantime IPA I picked up was just a bit dusty. Service was ok, no unpleasant but not really involved either, especially given that I was the only one in the shop. I'm new in town, a grad student at UCD, and I'll certainly be back often while I'm living in Dublin. Head and shoulders above any other place I've seen.

The place had a great selection of beers from all over the world.
I went in looking forthe Irish micorbreweries and was pretty successful. I was able to pick up some hard to find Porterhouse beers and even my personal favorite Guiness Special Export Stout. They also had Dungarvam, Trouble Brewing, Carlow Brewing Co, and 1 other I can't recall.
They also have a decent American microbrew selection including Brooklyn Local 1 & 2, Sierra Nevada limited production beers, and various others.
Prices were fine not too expensive.

I felt that I had been living in a desert beerwise here in Dublin, until my son told me about this oasis.
This is without doubt, the best place in Dublin city or county in which to buy beer. This is a labour of love for Jimmy and Aidan Redmond, as they aim to have over 100 different beers in stock at any one time. There is no beer list, because it changes all the time, but they will usually have an excellent range of Belgian, German and UK beers in stock. They also stock larger bottles up to magnum size. Regular stock include Aventinus, Het Kapittel (Prior & Abt), Rochfort 8 & 10, Orval, Goose Island brews, some Brooklyn and many top UK ales and stouts, many displayed on chilled shelving.
I should mention that this outlet has won awards as an overall off-licence so is highly regarded by wine buffs also. Do not be put off by their below par website, this place is a treasure. I never knew I could buy half these beers in Dublin and am happy enough to pay for the previlege.

Visited here on Wed 12th September while in Dublin for a few days.... Thanks to johnfromdublin for the exact directions...
Very easy to get to from the city centre using the Luas - just get of at the Ranelagh stop, turn right when exiting and Redmonds is only about 50 metres up the street on your right...
The majority of the excellent selection of the beer is kept in a huge fridge on the right of the store as you walk in... the rest is dotted around the place...
A decent selection of US craft brews was what interested me the most - they had 3 from Rogue (Dead Guy Ale, American Amber and Chocolate Stout) and 4 or 5 from Sam Adams (incl. Black Lager, Boston Ale, Summer Ale and Cream Stout)...
I also picked up Boon Gueuze Mariage Parfait, Baltika Porter, Aventinus Eisbock, Poperings Hommel Bier, 2 Arainn Mhor brews and a couple of beers from Broughton...
Service was friendly and they seemed to know what they were talking about...
If you're in Dublin i would definitely recommend a visit here...

Currently I live quite close to the place, but never knew there was such an excellent shop until my wife told me about it.
One the things I like the most about it that although the selection of beers is not huge (wines are much better represented), could be around 50-70 different, mostly from Belgium (good choice of Trappists), Germany and a bit from the US as well as some English ales, it keeps changing constantly, so it never gets boring.
I have to admit it is quite pricey, even more common beers are not less than 3 euros, but most of them are 4-5 euros.
