We popped in here one busy Saturday night and it was pretty full. We got served quickly though and the staff were friendly. I could see people eating everywhere including the bar. It is well laid out and has a modern feel. I think its a great option for a couple of drinks before dinner or even for the night.

Visited this pub with a large group of friends and spent 3 hours here drinking and spending large amounts of Euros.....it is without doubt the most unwelcoming place ive visited for a long while. The staff were unhelpful and unpleasant but only to happy to take our money with little welcome

Called in here for a drink before going on to a local restaurant. This looks like a really good pub, with lots of little corners. Very good service, and great smells coming from the food that was being served. Certainly worth another visit.

I went to this bar intending to watch an NFL game and was not disappointed. Along with a pretty good selection of beers on draft (didn't dip into the bottles/cans) they had plenty of televisions and I was satisfied with my experience.

Friendly staff, pint of draught beer only €4 each. Special deals €10 for main meal and a pint. Chicken curry was quite good.

Was there watching rugby. Went out for smoke. Went back to bar for a pint. Bouncer told bar staff not to serve us anymore. I was a regular in the place. We were causing no trouble.

try the 'meal deal' - 1 pint of guiness or wine + 1 main course (decent, not extraordinary, but still) = 10 euros - as it's one of the best deals in the area

all i have to say is, bangers and mash. Tastes just like what momma makes, tastes home made and the prices are fair.
