Had a lively lunch with my wife and her sister. Friendly staff took special care of the special eating requirements of my sister in law. Oh and the food was yummy. Try the bacon, Brie and avocado sand which :)

We found this stop while passing through the town, and it turned out as a jackpot! The food was absolutely great, the service was very nice and fast, and the whole place is lovely furnished and really cozy. Don't miss this when you are in town!

We've been in Ireland for two weeks and had some wonderful meals but this by far topped them all. The food, service and atmosphere was the best. When we're lucky enough to come back to Ireland, this will be a must on our places to visit again!!

Good food, great service and good atmosphere. Just passing through the town and stopped because we liked the yellow paint on the windows. Had the salmon, steak sandwich, pulled pork brioches and chicken quesadilla. All meals were delicious.
