“Something Different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Old fashioned Bar with great atmosphere. Some good sessions here, where you will definately have a great mixture of local characters and visitors. Look out on to the main street and view the everyday happenings of Wexford. A great place for a quiet drink or a good session, depending on the time of the day.

“great crack”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

For the true Irish experience, with traditional music, great conversation and great conversation with the locals located in the heart of Wexford town one of the last authentic irish pubs which has managed to keep it simple, and traditional. great for a sing song and a good pint of Guiness. Try it on the weekend when the crack is the best..Enjoy

“Heart of the town”

Great place for a drink especially when wife is out shopping. Its in the heart of the town and you can see the bull ring while sitting inside or enjoying your drink outside in the sunny south east. Friendly staff.

“Visit 'The Undertakers'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

So named because the original proprietor was also the local undertaker. Try to go on a night when there is live music, especially when Martin Jackman is singing and playing guitar. Very good Guinness.
