It would be a shame to miss a meal at this famous restaurant. The food and service was outstanding. We had lunch. The atmosphere is casual. The size of Durty Nelly's easily accommodated our party of eight. The food came quickly and piping hot.

Went here seeing as it was no. 2 on TripAdvisor but the food we got was very average. Burger and chips and steak sandwich along with kids food. Nothing spectacular for the price. Unmemorable and disappointed

I believe they can seat 50 but this most likely will be outside, so you very much depend on the weather. Please also note that restaurants in Ireland generally close early. Better call them directly and check if they can... More
