The food was great and the service was really friendly. A lovely traditional Irish venue. While we were there, romantic couples, family groups and a birthday party were there, so they cater for everyone.

Great atmosphere, delicious food. A bit pricey. They have an Irish whiskey bar and an Irish poets room which is also neat.

Although it's a bit out of the way the trip to this restaurant is well worth it. The food was fantastic and the staff are all excellent. Great selection of food and everyone at our table hadn't a bad thing to say about their meals. I'll be taking a trip back here sometime soon and I recommend you do too.
