Grub Food the best, Beer always pouring, the whiskey , we what does one say about Irish whiskey (don't mix it with ice cubes, or water, you barbarian!!)(, enjoy drinking it warm and listen to the music by the fireplace in the whiskey room. A wonderful time, prices are the best in Ireland, fair and honest craftsman and women sell their original Irish goods there, you''ll find no better pub in Ireland to visit

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.
