We've been pleasantly surprised by the pub food in our week in Ireland - tonight's meal was among the best my family has had. They had a nice children's menu (and crayons) for the kids - my young son and daughter devoured their roast of the day (chicken) and spaghetti bolognese. I had a beef curry and a chicken corn...

Murphy's Bar has a great ambiance and the food is great. Definitely try the soup and sandwich and if you want something else we found other selections just a good. If you can make it go again at night and drink a pint and listen to some traditional Irish music.

I went off the decent review on trip advisor when looking for a place for lunch on my recent trip, at the time this has 4.5/5 stars but we found the food very basic and bland, which was disappointing.

We dined near the fireplace area, which kept us warm. The food and service were excellent. There was live Irish music that evening, and we enjoyed this as well.

We had our lunch in here while waiting for a bus. Both had burgers and as far as it was an offer due to the races were pretty happy with the price. The portion is generous, the quality of meat is good and you have lots of chips as well. After this great lunch we even skipped the dinner. If... More
