Music was also fine, but younger musicians that night. I understand that often it's the older top-notch folks -- although some of the younger trad musicians are top-notch -- that play there.

“Great place for our last dinner in Ireland”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We really wanted to find an authentic Irish pub for our last dinner in Ireland before we flew home from Shannon airport the following morning. This place definitely fit the bill. We started with some garlic mushrooms that were very flavorful and succulent. The waitress recommended a couple of local beers which were both very good. We especially loved the Smithwicks beer. For entree I went with a twist on bangers and mash while my husband tried the mixed grill platter. Both excellent choices and we were more than full by the time we were done.
Highly recommend this place. We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the music and the atmosphere.

“Great find”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Last night ate in the poets corner in Ennis, had to be the best pub, food, athmosphere we had experiences on sadly our short trip to Ireland. Pub is in the Old Ground Hotel, which sadly we were not staying in, will next time!
We had great Guinness and then decided to eat. I had a great creamy chicken dish served in puff pastry, and John had a Sirloin steak that must be one of the best he has tasted. Good wine list and loved the casual setting. At about 9 pm great traditional music was being played.
Sadly had to leave Ennis for Shannon next morning
