I went in this pub on a Sunday evening and was greeted with fantastic and well played live music. Typically Irish and very welcome and refreshing. The beer was great and the barman was very friendly. A great crowd and many new friends made. Go here it's great!

Old fashioned Bar with great atmosphere. Some good sessions here, where you will definately have a great mixture of local characters and visitors. Look out on to the main street and view the everyday happenings of Wexford. A great place for a quiet drink or a good session, depending on the time of the day.

Great place for a drink especially when wife is out shopping. Its in the heart of the town and you can see the bull ring while sitting inside or enjoying your drink outside in the sunny south east. Friendly staff.

So named because the original proprietor was also the local undertaker. Try to go on a night when there is live music, especially when Martin Jackman is singing and playing guitar. Very good Guinness.

This was a fantastic authentic pub until a couple of years ago. Modernisation has ruined it
