We were visiting and staying at the royal marine and this pub is located nearby for walking. The pub has a really cool vibe to it and the band playing was quite good. We will be here for the week and I am certain will visit a few more times this week for a few pints. Dallan the manager was... read more

We only had time to stop for a drink but I loved the place. The drinks selection and atmosphere were great. The menu looked lovely too if you are a fan of Thai food. I hope to return to try it out!

Was there for a Socrates Cafe meet Up and as a first timer it took a while for the place to grow on me but it did in the end. I even tried the bar food which was rushed in from nearby Camile Thai Restaurant (that was great food) The style is more shabby chic kind of retro but heavy... More

I love it here. Great atmosphere with its old fashioned wall paper, coloured lampshades and battered sofas. Its definitely retro and has been around well before the hipster craze so it gets a great mix of people and the crowd isn't too young. They do movie nights here too where they will show a film on the big screen and... More

Found this pub really unusual... Initially we thought it was a bit of a dump, when in fact it turned out a lovely quirky pub! Everything is retro from wallpaper to lampshades. Bar staff very friendly. Definitely worth popping in for a pint :)

I popped in with pals before Christmas for a midweek pint, There was a great buzz and festive atmosphere. We sampled a few of there craft beers and ended up playing who wants to be a million are with a bunch of students. It brought back pleasant memories of life before work and mortgage.

This is a great pub with a great mix of people and live music every night-best pub in Dunlaoire. I always found the people there very friendly-never ate here but can get takeaway from place across the Road
