My wife and I drove from Galway in the morning to Bunratty Castle. After a drive of about 1.5 hours and 3 hours or so at Bunratty Castle we headed across the street for lunch at Durty Nelly’s.
The food and the service were both very good. The pub and the restrooms were clean. Both the staff and other patrons were friendly and offered us some tips for driving around and exploring the area. Nelly’s made for a nice lunch break after exploring Bunratty Castle, we would stop there again.
Its worth mentioning that if you’ve only had a Guinness in the U.S., then you owe it to yourself to have a pint overseas; the Guinness we end up with the States is skunked by comparison. If a stout just isn’t your thing, Bulmer’s Irish Cider gets two thumbs up from my wife and I. Give it a try.
