We went to this pub as part of our CIE bus tour and it turned out to be a fun event. The place was packed with tour buses yet they were very well organized and the service was very efficient. They evidently serve large crowds on a regular basis. We had a limited choice menu and the food was very good, especially the apple pie for dessert. The musicians who manage the place put on a very entertaining show but it was not the typical Celtic music I thought it would be. It leaned toward more modern Irish folk music with some humor sprinkled throughout. The dancers that performed between the music sets were exceptional and did a very nice job. They did traditional Irish folk dancing and the men and women dancers were quite talented. I really liked them better than the singers. It was a fun evening and I would go there when the tour buses are not scheduled if you are traveling as an individual because it is a charming place.
