“Great food”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Ate here over the Easter weekend, we had a table reserved which I would recommend as they had a very full house. Food was excellent, huge portions and really friendly staff. We stayed on for a few drinks, there was live music. The owner spent the night making his way around the tables making sure everyone was well looked after. A great spot, well worth a visit

“Magic Mother's Day”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We had a meal on Mother's day. The restaurant was exceptionally busy, however, the staff were friendly and efficient and attentive . The food was superb, we all opted for beef which was cooked to perfection. I would recommend the chowder as a starter and for dessert apple crumble. A main course for €11.95 max price on Mother's Day is a real bargain. The whole dining experience was most enjoyable, so much so, that we stayed on in the bar for drinks for an extra couple of hours

“Great food & friendly staff”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

A great restaurant, always good food, lively atmosphere. Can be busy at weekends so advisable to book in advance, music also some nights so check who's playing! Friendly, attentive staff so worth a visit.

“Great food and value ”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

We rented an apartment with full kitchen etc, but only stayed a night. The apartment was on he basic side but newly refurbished and very clean and comfortable.

The dinner bed and breakfast deal was great and we could choose from everything on the menu, with 4 courses. Everything we had was excellent, tasty and very big portions.

The restaurant was busy with a great atmosphere and there was a traditional band playing on the night that we were in who were very good.

The area around the restaurant is being developed so should be finished soon and looking good. Plenty to do nearby and lovely scenery.
