“Great craic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

I was pleasantly surprised when we went inside. It is huge. There are some brilliant bands playing here and the atmosphere is fantastic. Gets very packed and is hard to get to the bar but well worth a visit.

“Buzzing at night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

Lovely quaint little street that seemed to come alive at night - reminded me of Spain! Lot's of lovely little restaurants/cafes/bars to choose from... Seemed to be some good music going on too.

Great fun a variety of music genres can experienced here, but somenights can be very raucous. This also a good spot for eating.

“Lovely in the day and early evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2014

Loved the atmosphere during the day and early evening. Great pubs, shops and restaurants. Later at night it becomes a bit feral. Too many drunks and wild tourists late at night.
