Good craic to be had here.

This is a great little bar to stop in and have a few beers and a laugh, it gets very busy at weekends so get in early. Bar staff are friendly and the atmosphere is buzzing.

I was in here for lunch recently. The food typical pub grub, of a good standard and good value. The location is nice and cozy (it was midday on a Sunday so it was still fairly quiet) and the staff were extremely friendly and polite.

Live music every night and a great pint of Guinness. Regular local musicians turn up and do their stuff and get the place rocking and singing in no time. The pub is very narrow and gets very busy but the bar staff keep the customers happy with their service. Brilliant pub

I ordered the "Homemade soup of the day with homebacked black bread". In my opinion, the price of 4,75€ was appropriate when i think about homemade stuff, but what they served was a cheek. I don´t know how the waitress couldnt recognize that the bread was moulded, it was clearly visible. After telling her, she apologised and brought some new... More
