I had Beef with Guinness Stew followed by Rich Chocolate Fudge Cake. Everything was delicious. This was our first night to meet the rest of our group in our tour of Ireland.

Good enough but not good enough to return. Roast beef not tender. Belly pork really good. Orders mixed up. Received chips instead potatoes, salad instead veg. Don't expect haute cuisine. However was perfectly satisfactory for mid week pub meal

受朋友邀请在这里参加了一个爱尔兰传统音乐的聚会,聚会是在二楼举行的,场地非常好而且音响设备声临其境,同过窗户可以看到整个都柏林湾的海景,加上便捷的交通,是一个举行聚会的好地方,楼下也有爱尔兰传统音乐的演出,还想再去!! Was invited to a traditional Irish dancing event, the venue upstairs was fantastic with decent waiters and delicious bites, sound equips and music are world class, can see gorgeous sea view through windows which I would highly recommend for events in the future, also...More
