Always a good crowd great live music and nice food. I prefer it to some of the louder more packed pubs in the village. We were upstairs in the terrace bar which is a lovely spot.

We stumbled in here in the rain and immediately loved it. It's what I imagined an Irish pub should be. The staff was helpful and friendly and the food was hearty and delicious. I recommend the seafood chowder which was rich and filling. My wife had the caesar salad with chicken and enjoyed it. We had such a good time... More

Good local pub with friendly staff. Nice selection of beers available as well as reasonably priced good food. Generally live music on here at weekend nights so can be a bit loud but overall a nice spot..

We found this quaint pub after our visit to Malahide Castle. The wait staff is cordial and friendly. Their Guiness pot pie was delicious and so was their french toast and ham. They do serve beer with breakfast.

We had 45 minutes until the next train back to Dublin. After visiting the Malahide Castle, we stopped in here from the lunch special sign out front. A local pub, but with lots of locals eating lunch. The Euro 2016 games were on and it was a fun atmosphere. There was only one server, but she was so friendly and... More
