Very popular restaurant. Traditional food, piping hot, great portions and delicious. Fantastic value for money. If it is good enough for the local priest, it is good enough for anyone. Well worth a visit

This is a wonderful place to go for delicious Irish comfort food. All the dishes are tasty and served as they would be by your Irish mother. Service is friendly and the prices are low!

This small but very nice Restaurant serves fresh and very very good seafood. The service was very frindly and although we were an hour early for the dinner menu we were able to pick a dish from this menu. The seafood was fresh and tasted really great. We will definitely come back again.
