I stopped off here at lunchtime in April 2013. I came across the facility by accident and seeing that there was plenty of available free parking decided to give it a try.
This is a large bar with intelligent use of space so you and your party can feel that you are able to dine in relative privacy. It is clean and comfortable and a welcome break on a long journey. It is also has good Wi-Fi is you are in need of communication.
The Guinness I ordered was one of the best served pints I have had anywhere in Ireland and the staff were efficient if a little distant. This standoffish characteristic seems to be part of the Limerick psyche and it takes a little time to break down. Behind it all they can be quite approachable and friendly.
Eating was another matter however. The food was piled on the plate in an unattractive heap and although I asked for potatoes and no other vegetable, the waiter managed to get the message reversed so I had plenty of vegetables and a little potato. In Ireland people consider the potato not as a generic vegetable but as a separate item so you will sometimes hear the phrase, "some vegetables and potatoes (of chips)!" My fish was quite adequate and helped to provide sustenance for the rest of my travels that day.
All in all it was not a bad experience but I would not be inclined to make a detour if I were heading in this general direction.
