A great little bar on the Quay close to Reginalds tower. Great pints of Guinness. Very popular with the locals and friendly staff. A great bar to visit to get a feeling of a proper irish pub.

Perfectly served chilled Guinness in a quaint old bar. Well worth dropping in for a beer at any time of day. Good selection of whiskies to go with your beer.
