The old Brian Boru no longer operates as a hotel - but it is home to Brew, a fantastic cafe/wine bar. We had an amazing meal there, fantastic value for money, and the place is full of character. Thoroughly recommended.

We went there yesterday for lunch. The staff were very busy and never missed a beat, the food was delicious with good sized portions. Real value for money in a nice setting. Will definitely be back again.

Nice cafe/bar with good coffee and food. The old historic pub has character and atmosphere. Big burgers and home made chips are all good. Friendly service

We took both sets of parents here for mothers day ( 2 old birds... 1 stone) packed out with a lovely atmosphere it was a great looking place ( recently been given a lick of paint). My partner was on crutches after having recent knee surgery there was still plenty of room to get round tables and sit comfortable. The food was awesome, great menu with mothers day specials, bouquet of flowers were given round to all the mothers from the owner. Fantastic touch. Staff were friendly and very helpful. After being a front of house staff in a previous life, I was amazed they could cope as well as they did under that pressure and still be friendly. Skill in its self. When it came to the bill It was very reasonable for 6 people, cannot complain. Going back again.... Without the old birds this time :)
