We went to this restaurant upon the recommendation of our B&B owner. She was right. Both of our dishes were excellent. Traditional Irish Pub food. Very friendly waitress as well.

We had a very nice lunch of Irish food here while watching a game of hurling. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced and the service was friendly and quick.

Popped in for lunch followed by a massive coach party. We were served quickly and food was very nice. Very large tv screen. A little expensive for the portion size but ok.
