We had a BBQ, the food was very tasty and plenty of it. They did burgers, sausages, chicken, chips and a load of delicious salads. The food was very fresh.

What makes a pub a great atmosphere? To me it's the friendly people you meet. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Giltraps talking about travels, the town and the sport of Hurling. I would go back in an instant.
