Yum!

Good variety of food choices and very large portions. Relaxed environment, great after a long day of touring or traveling. Recommended by locals and visitors. We went around 7pm, it was quite busy and only had to wait a short time to get a table.

After joining forces with a fellow solo traveller on a coach tour, we decided to drop by Hannigan's for drinks and early evening meal. We started off in the bar at the front, which was comfortable and quiet, perfect for a chat with a couple of pints. At 6pm the restaurant at the back opened and we were welcomed into... More

We stopped here for a drink and it was very quiet, not a lot of people around and no music. I've heard the food is lovely but didn't try it myself. Handy location in the centre of the town but wouldn't be myfirst choice.
