Let me start by saying that I tell it like it is. As you can see, I have along with many others, reviewed this establishment before and could not fault the restaurant. This is still the case. But a recent visit to one of the downstairs bars is what brought this following problem to the fore.
I ordered a drink, they didn't have it. I tried a different one....they didn't have that either.... Now I'm not talking 'Chateau Lafite Rothschild' here, or a 1996 'Dom Perignon Rose', I'm on about the standard stuff like 'Jack Daniels' or 'Jameson' whiskey, the likes of which us 'commoners' drink! When I did find a short that they did have, I asked for 'Coke' as a mixer.....guess what....no Coke!!!! How can a bar have no Coke? It's like having 'Laurel' with no 'Hardy' or 'Jordan' without 'T***s'! So, whoever's in charge of this establishment....nip out the Killala road for a mile and you'll find a big industrial compound on your right, it's called 'Ballina Beverages', and it just so happens that it is one of the largest manufacturing plants in Europe belonging to the Coca-Cola company....ask them to lend you a crate or two! Oh, and ask them if they have any JD or Jameson they can spare!
