Fantastic service food piping hot. You must eat here at least one morning during your stay. Traditional Irish breakfast comes highly recommended.

If you want to have a breakfast that'll keep you going for the rest of the day, you are in the right place. Delicious and generous portions of all kinds of hearty morning foodstuffs. The famous Tony fry-up is famous for a very good reason....More
