Went here based on reviews for Irish stew and it was very good. Staff was friendly and effective suggest you go before six as we got immediate seating. After that others were waiting but still seemed to go quickly for them

Great irish food and bar. We spent a lot of time here waiting to check into our hotel and we had great beef stew and brown bread. Service was great and was a great atmosphere in a great location in Ireland!
