When I visited T. Breathnachs I was overwhelmed by how friendly the staff were. The Guinness was lovely and good value too. A trip to Ballina should always include an evening in T.Breatnachs.

Guinness was great and there was a genuine friendly buzz about the place. It reminded me of how the pubs used to be years ago. Will be back agin without... More
