The pub has loads of atmosphere and a great location. It's just a shame that they couldn't add killer food to that combination.

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
