This was our first day in Ireland and our first introduction to an Irish Pub. We were there a little early and it wasn't very crowed then 5:00 came around and the work crowd came in, and it was packed. So we chatted with some of the locals and actually ate dinner in the bar. It was very good and the atmosphere was lively. The pub itself is something to see. We liked our meal and the bar so much, we had dinner in the restaurant upstairs the following night. We weren't disappointed. Friendly attentive staff, great atmosphere and good food, can't miss.
