Value for money, good music if there at right time but can be a bit packed and difficult to get a seat

Crowd of us met here on a Friday evening-- no booking necessary and all were fed exceptionally well and quite promptly too. It was very busy and the customers tell me that the vol-u-vonts are to die for on Thursdays and Sunday evenings. Never tried them yet. Music started later on and the place was buzzing all night. Great bar... More

We chose to stay in and have our meal here. We enjoyed the aesthetics of the Bar, a hopping place with good food and service, what a nice touch of an Irish evening meal for us! Stay at the Old Ground and enjoy your meal here!

Good pub grub, nice music when we were there and the bartenders and waitstaff were very friendly. They could do with more comfortable seats and barstools though. I had a numb bum after a while - but it is very atmospheric and fun. It's also a place where locals enjoy so you might end up with some good conversation (we... More
