We were on our way to Glendalough and we popped in to this nicely appointed venue. It seems like an Irish bar rather than a restaurant and is festoooned with antique Irish bric a brac which would appeal to the tourists! There was a very good value kids menu and the wicklow trout was very good indeed. Friendly efficient service... More

We had ordered a starter and a main but the main was already on the table before we even finished the starter. Some people might appreciate the effectiveness but... More

The meal was great - good honest food and kids ate everything. Service was very slow though with mixed arrival at table. But we ate... More
