Smoke free! May annoy a few people but I like it. They have a nice patio for all the smokers. Its a good pub for having a few pints and a bite to eat. Bottle selection is now great! Owner is a BA so he really pays attention to the brews. Guinness is good here and the staff know how to pour. Staff also know a little about the new beers they get in which is a good idea. Some pubs get new beers and don't know anything about them.
Location is good for anybody living on 75. Right on Mockingbird station, this is a good pub to start at. Its a good meeting spot for people who don't know the area very well. Have a few then jump on the Rail and go down to CityPlace. From there an easy walk to McKinney Ave and all there is to offer there.

I really, really love this place...from watching a big football match to just stopping by for a pint, this is a lovely place. The beer selection is typical of a pub, although larger than a traditional pub. There's more than Guinness and Murphy's but you just feel like drinking an Irish beer when you walk through the doors.
The last time I was at Trinity Hall, I has some of their Shepherd's Pie and boy was it delicious. It was a perfect meal for the place. The bar is beautifully appointed, having been imported from Ireland. It just feel s right. Final evidence of excellence: An Irish girl, just off the plane from Dublin, accompanied me to Trinity Hall and told me she felt at home in the place.
I can't wait to go back!

This is a good Irish-style pub in a very metropolitan part of Dallas. Located at Mockingbird Station among and above several trendy shops, restaurants and a theatre, this is also a main stop on the DART rail line and convenient to the highway and major cross-roads. An "urban village" is the intended design.
And this, I feel, is its major shortcoming. Don't get me wrong, this is an excellent place with excellent brews. But there's just something oh, I don't know, a bit too.... sanitary about this place. It's new, its vogue, the clientele is young and pretty and oh-so middle- to upper-class, especially this close to SMU. Seems a bit too planned (I prefer my pubs to have that organic, just-grew-here look and feel).
OK, impressions are out of the way. This pub is very well decorated, well lit and a good layout. Decor is Irish library with lots of dark woods and bookshelves. Second story location, patio overlooking the shops, parking garage conveniently nearby/underground. Nice place to see and be seen, although it's a bit too compact for a band (could do without that).
Somewhere around 50 bottles, 15 taps. What is served on tap is served very well, proper glassware and all. Most of the British and Irish majors, along with macros and select micros, plus wine and a wide selection of whiskeys. Staff is very good and seems knowledgeable. Didn't try the food but the place smells great. Can be pricey for some things.
Overall, not as commercial as a Bennigans but not what I would call an "Irish" pub. A good place, nonetheless.
Edit 03/04/2006: While I've blown through here a couple of times in the past, this was the first time I've stayed for any extended length of time. I had to bump up a few numbers because of my recent experience.
Food, very good. Taps, pristine. Forget the useless servers, the owner came out to talk with us several times, even donated a couple of 12-oz bottles of new stuff for our group to sample. He's extremely generous, especially to his regulars. While this place still does suffer from Yuppie Fever, beerwise it has few equals in Dallas.

Trinity Hall has a great atmoshere. It has an (appropriate) Irish feel to it, but it's not over-the-top or gaudy like a Bennigans, for example, that tries so hard to appear Irish, that it's really kind of pathetic more than anything else. They have live music several times a week I think, so that definately adds to the appeal too.
The service is generally good, though there was one occasion where no one came to our table for a good 10 minutes after we sat down, so I ended up just going to the bar, only to have the waiter show up as I came back, Guinness-in-hand. But, the waiter recognized the problem and apologized for the delay. Nothing huge, and certainly nothing that would keep me from going there again.
The selection is about on par (if not a little above) with what you would expect for an Irish pub. Not sure if there is anything to brag about in this department, but then again, this is not supposed to compete with others in the area like the Gingerman or the Flying Saucer in terms of selection.
Food is great, yet the only thing I don't like about it. Let me elaborate. I go to the Hall, intending to have a few beers and enjoy some traditional music. But the waiter hands you that menu, and it's usually too much of a temptation to resist, and I often end up eating there, which of course leaves me with less room for beer (in both my stomach, and my wallet) - a dilema for any beer drinker ;-)
Location is also an attraction. It's still a good 20-30 minutes drive for me personally, but it's also conveniently located at Mockingbird Station, so if you don't feel like driving (or shouldn't because you've had too many), the train is a nice option, especially for people like me (I live just a couple miles from a DART rail station).
Whether you have Irish heritage or not, I would highly recommend Trinity Hall.

This Irish pub is situated right in the Mockingbird Station shopping center. Its a nice place. They have good beers and the bartenders can pour an excellent black and tan. The atmosphere is not so great only because it is a popular hang out for yuppies from Highland Park and some from Lakewood. I never had the food there. It looks good but is way overpriced. Their beers, while good, are also kinda overpriced. They also have a Irish band that plays on Thursday nights, (and the weekends too, I think) but it is usually the same one. Overall this place is not half bad but I only go if me and my friends have the money to spend.

Trinity Hall Pub is an excellent place to go and get very good Irish food and a good pint. The service is exceptional. Our office has a happy hour there every couple months. They bend over backwards to seat us together and keep the food and drinks coming. The food is very good but is rather pricey. Do not go there expecting Bennigans. The managers come by the table regularly to check on your opinion of service and quality. It is located right next to the Angelica Theater and makes a great place to drop in for a drink before and after. I like it because I can take the light rail directly to the pub AND HOME.
Dress can be sort of upscale particularly right after work, but jeans or sports attire can be found all the time. I would recommend this as a place to take a date or the spouse for a special night out.

Self-proclaimed as The closest thing to Dublin in Dallas, this is a nice place to stop by for lunch or after work to grab a few beers. They have a nice selection of about a dozen beers on tap and about twice that in bottles with a good amount of rotation of bringing in new beers to add to the menu. They also have a nice selection of Irish and Scotch Whiskeys. The beers are served in generous 19.5oz pints, but it is a bit expensive relative to other bars in the area. The food is average to good with lots of traditional Irish foods (Shepards pie, lamb stew, etc.), but is also a bit on the expensive side. Service is also very good here and the wait staff is always very friendly. It has a very cozy layout with much of the décor being in the form of bookcases filled with old novels and reference books. From their website, the layout is based on Dublin's famous university, Trinity College and celebrating the culture & heritage of those that have been a part of this institution's history. A patio is available which is nice due to the fact that the bar is located in an upscale area and overlooks a shopping area that usually provides some quality eye-candy. One projection TV is available, but is normally only in use for soccer games. Basically, I enjoy stopping by for a beer or two and possibly a bite to eat, but I never stay here too long due to the prices.
