The good was really good and the atmosphere was great. However it was so overpriced compared to the neighbor pub which served better food for cheaper. If you do end up here and have a sweet tooth, get the sticky toffee pudding. Delicious. Burger was dry, but the mussels were good.

We had some light meals which came promptly... More

My partner and I came here for dinner. And this is unforgettable. We absolutely love the food and drink here, of course, including the super service. The music is great as well , especially with some Irish Folk musics. So lovely. :-)

Went here for dinner as it was very close to our hotel. The food was excellent. We got slow cooked ribs in Guinness... need I say more? :) Also try the Dooliner Beer, a very nice Irish Red Ale.
