    Just off the harbor in Letterfrac. Great views of the water. Beautiful pub with old woods and comfortable seating. Very friendly staff and excellent seafood. Craft store and ample parking. Highly recommend. They have a name change but the parking lot says Bards Den.

    Spent a night there on a road trip recently. Staff was very friendly and forthcoming upon arrival; I got a basic but decent room on very short (i.e. no) notice. Food was very good, and so were the pints. What makes this a five-star review...More
