Irish pub still cherished. Visit and cherish the moment. Sit in the snug and peer through the revolving windows or in the lounges. No music, no food, no nonsense. Enjoy x

Nice old pub. Guinness is €4.30 a pint. Worth a visit if you are going to be nearby. Found out about the place from watching the film “ The Irish Pub.”

What an awesome wee pub. Great service, dinky and quaint. Would recommend drinking at the bar location as this is were all the craic is. Good old fashioned Irish bar with no nonsense service. Would recommend you do not walk by this wee bar.

as announced in the local newspaper, Nan Brennan, one of the sweet elderly ladies who ran the Criterion Bar, passed away mid August. So sad. Deepest sympathy to her sister Patricia and family.
