It’s attached to a hotel and a restaurant. Just stopped in for a shot. Price seemed high. But the bartender was great.

We popped in for some lunch and stayed for the Kilkenny vs Galway Leinster hurling final as my girlfriend is a Galway woman. Lunch was absolutely delicious and the pints were unreal. Servers/bar staff were very quick and mannerly too! Great atmosphere for the match...More
