Reviewed September 13, 2012

I remember this place when smoking was allowed in pubs. Can't help but think the patrons grew their own tobacco. Very creative bunch! Good oul days. Anyway, Monroes for a great pint, a good lash of irish trad and ballod type music and very famous for it's pizza.

“Great fun, good food!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

We were lucky enough to see the set dancing here. During our 11 days in Ireland, this was the only place where we saw this happening. Loved every minute of it! Great pub, and they have lots of fried, yummy foods that go well with a late night out!
