“Lively place”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

We stopped in for a pint and to hear the promised traditional music. However, there was a large wedding party celebrating and the music was quietly acoustic. Not a good mix. However, it's a lovely place, the people were friendly, and we enjoyed our pints. We just had to continue our quest for an evening of traditional music.

“Amazing pub”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

This pub is wonderful. I had dinner there. Ordered fish fillets. Came with chips, homemade tartar and salad. The food was great. The fish was very fresh. On a second visit, I had seafood chowder. Delicious base with chunks of seafood. The staff is very professional and friendly. The made great suggestions. I will go back again.

Good food? Great food!
Good music? Great music!
Good people? Great people!
And a really great pint of Guinness to wash it all down :-)
So if you are staying in or passing through the charming town of Ennis, make sure you have this pub top of your list!

“Good atmosphere - good food”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Like the hustle and bustle of the pub. Service a little sketchy. One waitress took the order, another brought it and I had to ask for the check to leave after waiting a long time. I know that characteristically in Ireland the restaurants give you time to sit after a meal but this was way longer than usual and it was not that busy.

“Traditional Irish music, great food and the nicest staff!”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Just adding my voice to the other reviews - this is really one of the nicest pubs in the country I'd have to say. The food is very good and good value, but it's both the staff and the music that make this place!

The staff are brilliant - friendly, helpful, polite, interested in their customers, well able to chat.
The music is just great - authentic Irish music played by very talented local musicians.

Love it!
