“Good food at a fair price”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

I recently took a trip back home to see family in Ireland as I had not been back in a number of years. Durty Nelly's was a favourite haunt of mine when I lived in Limerick some 40 years ago.
It hasn't changed much since the last time I was in it about 25 years ago. I stopped on my way to the airport and took in a Sunday lunch. Absolutely excellent a good dish, enough on the plate, at a fair price and served with a smile. What more can a traveller want. With a bit of luck I may get to repeat the experience. Thanks Folks.

“Come for the Beer and the Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Drinking in a 400-year-old pub, chatting with the locals, and swapping stories with your fellow travelers. What's not to love? While I can only comment on the pub aspects this time around, during a much earlier visit (15 years ago) I did have an very good meal. This time, though, the evening was limited to drinking, talking, laughing and enjoying the atmosphere. I even got a baseball hat (which is now on display in my office). If you're in the area, stop by. You'll have a memorable evening.

“Nice surprise.”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

A group of us went and were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. Service was excellent. The bar was really crowded and the guy on the piano was fun entertainment.
