Ate here last weekend, top quality food, and fantastic staff, was everything and more that we hoped for on a night out. You just wouldn't feel the night slip away in such pleasant surroundings. We will def be heading back once we get the chance to spend another weekend in the kingdom.

Traveling through the SW and after a long walk on Tralee there just is no better stop. A must. A real buzzing pub with an amazing restaurant attached. Served us late at 10pm with an advance call to a most inviting barkeep. True Irish hospitality. Wonderful service and craic. Thoughts of my return get me through the grind of NYC and life in general.
