Great Place

We stayed two nights, including St. Patrick's Day. We started out downtown stopping in 3 or 4 Irish pubs working our way back up to the hotel. This the O'Callaghan hotel restaurant/bar and they had great Irish food, music, dancers. It was the perfect place to cap off our St. Patrick's Day.

Had wonderful breakfast at this cozy, charming bar/restaurant. Wish I could have stayed longer and enjoyed a bigger meal there.

Bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable of area attractions. Atmosphere is just what is needed for a quiet nightcap.

Eggs Benedict over Crab cakes. Extremely nice dining room. Felt like a bit of Ireland except there were no Bangers and Hash.

Great deals at happy hour during the week from 4-7 PM. Steamed mussels and wings were delicious. Wine and beer prices were great. Service was friendly and attentive. Breakfast was made to order and the food was fresh and delicious.

First, breakfast looked good, but was horribly overpriced. I ordered corned beef hash, thinking that it was an Irish pub, so it would be special. It was, instead, two small patties of CANNED corned beef hash with poached eggs on top. It was $14! Ridiculous. Not to mention the restaurant was not crowded at all and it took (again, not... More

The food was so so at best and expensive. Not a good combination. Room service eggs ordered over medium were runny and raw. Yuck
