We went here for a meal on Monday night and although quiet, we had a lovely meal and the service was second to none. Be aware the parking is a problem but there is parking not far away.

One of my favourite pubs in Ireland. It is steeped in history and has a great pint of beer. Not the most comfortable seats in the world but thats okay.

The restaurant was closed for a private function so we ate at the pub. The chicken curry and steak sandwich were both good. Friendly service.
