Good Grub

Kinda small and quaint but that's not a bad thing, it's a place full of character and they serve great grub.

This was the first place my wife and I stopped at in Ireland. We had a couple of pints and ate some lunch, both of which were quite tasty.

We dropped in on a fri evening. Two local men playing music. Craic was ninety. We enjoyed their music so much and the atmosphere was good. The pub was packed but found the staff to be very friendly especially Adam

Terrible staff andterrible bar, at least it's consistent. From front door to rear it's grim. Power trip owner throws customers out for kicks.

Went in for a few hours. Don't remember the name of the music group but lots of fun and singing along. Packed to capacity but well worth pushing your way in. Great fun!

Live music and bear. Can't get better. It was close to our hostel and on the main street. only downside is that you need to go to bar to get your drink.
