Its the only pub in Wexford that no matter what time you walk by there will be bodies in the window making the cold pints on display very tempting indeed. In warmer months they have tables right outside, and given its location you feel like you are sitting in the middle a street as cars and busy shopper whiz by... More

A bustling little pub in the heart of Wexford. Busy day and night. Serves a good pint and prompt bar men. In my opinion could shake the music up a little, every time I've been in its the same musician, he is quite good however. Owner Eddie very obliging.

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.
