After a cold walk along the cliffs, it was lovely to settle down in The Nook for lunch next to its real-wood fires.

This is a great little restaurant for visitors to the Giant's Causeway. The staff was super friendly and helpful, service was great, and everything was very affordable. If you're visiting the Causeway, this is an excellent, cozy "nook" of a restaurant to check out.

We spent a week in Ireland and this was the best Pub food we had. The Guiness Stew and the biscuit were top notch and the hot port with cloves and lemon will warm any cold hands!

This is a small pub close to the Giant's causeway in the old school house. Food is basic but delicious. It y a cold day when we visited but they have a lovely roaring fire that warmed us through in no time. Staff were helpful and friendly. Prices reasonable but not cheap.
