“Wonderful place for a pint and a bite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

We stopped here for our first Guinness pint of our trip and the young lady who worked there was the perfect hostess. She recommended food to go with our drinks and was lovely to talk with. Very warm and inviting place to relax and enjoy yourself. Great food too, hats off to the Chef!

“Great little pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Since the weather was so wonderful, we sat out in front of the pub at a barrel table and enjoyed a pint or two.

“Dined here twice as it was SO good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Delicious food with great service! The food was so good we ate there twice.. The decor is very cool. It is centrally located and has outdoor seating but unfortunately that where all the smokers hang out. Will definitely return!

Everything - food, staff, quality, value for money and ambiance. Whether for a drink or to eat, you are welcomed in the same wonderful way. A great find.

“Better Ribs Than in the USA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

My wife and I both had a rack of ribs, and they were superb. The meat was falling-off-the-bone tender, and the sauce was perfect (for our tastes): no too thick and not too overpowering. The sauce had just the right combination of sweet and sour. We were both very surprised and happy to find such high quality food in an Irish pub.

We didn't have a reservation, but the staff was gracious enough to find us a table. I would recommend making a booking if you decide to go. The restaurant was crowded even on a Wednesday evening when we went.

Service was excellent, and the atmosphere was welcoming. Our dinners and drinks (2 pints of Guiness) came to about 60 Euros.
