Wet friday afternoon, bar had been open for over 2 hours but empty. Staff disappeared without acknowledging us, after we walked in, they appeared to be having a meeting out the back at the sake of our custom. We waited 15min before leaving without any service. Left a bad taste in our mouth as I was a fan of their... More

Good selection of beers available so you'll find one to suit your taste and the friendly staff will help you out. The freshly made pizzas are also pretty good and reasonably priced. But don't expect "silver service" as it's eat with your fingers....the way pizza should be eaten! If you have the time take the brewery tour/tasting. Informative and good... More

We had dinner in the garden on a Wednesday evening, the atmosphere was ok, nothing extraordinary but good.

So far is the... More

Good home made beers of course but also a nice terrace (heated). They are only few seats inside! A nice spot on spring and summer especially and there are some animations during the evenings (music but not only)

We arrived at this place at 3:30 in the afternoon, it was advertised as open at 3:00. In the bar, there was no-one. No customers and no bar staff. We waited - and waited... . Nobody turned up. After about ten minutes waiting, we gave up. Worst of all, this place is a bit out of the city centre. It... More

Lovely small brewpub - I used to come here about 10+ years ago while a student at UCC and delighted to see it's still pretty much the same! Young(ish) crowd but lovely beer and ambience. The pizza is fantastic and the guys working at the pizza booth are great craic. Would highly recommend!

Really enjoy a night in the well. It can be quiet depending on the night as it is a little from the city centre. Love going to see One Horse Pony play here.Great Easter fest this year!!!
