First night in Ireland and this was a good choice for fish and chips with Guiness to start the trip right. Just what I was looking for.

Hi! Me and my wife were here to have lunch today and I have to say it was the worst food I ever had in Ireland. So disappointing after such a nice experience in the lovely city Kilkenny!

We went in because we heard music, and we had a great evening. The food was good, the atmosphere warm and welcoming and the entertainment was very nice. I can still remember the pie that I ordered. Music and Irish dancing.
