Great place to take a break from a busy day touring. Warm and cosy with lots of brick and wood. Very hospital staff and they can pour a perfect pint.

If you're looking for a good wholesome time and a taste of Ireland, this is where to go. We came here on a lucky night where there was a live band playing local music. The entire bar was singling along and dancing. Everyone was really nice. My favorite night of all!

Nancy Hands is one of our favorite pubs - Hands Down. Plenty of bus tours drop thru here, so there is typically a diverse crowd. Plenty of locals in as well. Great food, great Guinness, great beer garden and amazing atmosphere. Staff is bright, bubbly and friendly. Always a great time.

We ( 10 ladies on a birthday trip) called in for your 'free' taster of Guinness which was free with the open bus tour we were on. The staff were excellent and so efficient, even when we all decided to order liqueur coffees, and a lot of variations!! Fab pub
