Ian Mapp left this review about Dublin Castle

A must visit music venue, where the beer quality has improved significantly. London Pride in fine nick. Well described below, and I can confirm that the jukebox does work. A fella was feeding it and putting on wholly inappropriate ac/dc.

Tris C left this review about Dublin Castle

One of Camden's most famous live music venues, generally catering for people attending a gig; the main music room and a second bar are through doors to the rear.
Lighting is rather red inside with bare boards and lots of music memorabilia, naturally with a focus on local boys Madness. There's a brewers' Tudor interior with curved leatherette booths; the interior seems a bit dated, a bit 1970s'. There's also something of an Irish flavour, probably due to the name and fact that it is (or was) run by the Conlons. There's a jukebox, though I'm not sure if it's for decoration as is now so often the case. At least one TV was on showing sport with the sound down; the gramophone was playing The Stranglers, AC/DC and The Who at an agreeable level.
Ales: a friendly American barmaid was serving Hobgoblin, St. Austell's Tribute and Robinson's Trooper which was a bit lifeless though was dirt cheap at just £2.00 a half.
I can't really see myself coming here again as this isn't my type of pub and I'm not a fan of live music venues either, but it's an iconic venue and Camden would be all the worse if it were to join the ranks of other live music venues that have closed around here of late.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Dublin Castle

Basic music pub, with the main bar at the front and the venue (and another bar) to the rear. Plenty of posters and memorabilia on the walls, of course, and a sports TV screen losing the battle against the music system. Also has a few seats outside on the pavement. Youngs Ordinary and Portobello Carnival Pale (£3.70) available from the three handpumps.
