Taste the 4 corners of Ireland, or ask for their recommendation! These guys know their whiskey. Cozy bar with a lovely staff and some great live music on a Saturday night.

If you are a foodie, you must eat here. Fantastic atmosphere and delicious food. James O'Neil is the manager here and knows how to deliver excellent customer service. This was one of the best meals we had on our trip.

What a great spot. Chad at the bar helped us navigate everything from the streets outside to the whiskey we tried. He was helpful and the drinks were superb. We'll be back for the food if we can.
