We went to watch the Ireland V All Blacks in this venue only last week. It was marvellous. The pub was alive with rugby supporters and non supporters and a fabulous atmosphere was in the pub. The food is also excellent in this pub with traditional music also some nights.

I recently went here with a few people for dinner. I didn't know what I was expecting but the food was amazing! I had the chicken and it was really to die for! The bar had a great atmosphere and the staff were very friendly!

Found this place through trip advisor so decided to check it out. Turned out to be well worth the time. It was also recommended by a local who told us that Jenny or Andre would look after us, and Jenny certainly did, bringing the chef out to talk to us. We had the roast chicken dinner and the bangers and... More

This quite a big bar and is on two levels and right besides the peoples park and there is plenty of parking nearby,the food is very good and reasonably priced and you get large portions.

Had a fantastic meal of Irish beef and local beer. The bartender/waiter was great at suggestions, friendly, and competent. It was a quiet night and we enjoyed our first night in Ireland with dinner and a beer. Ambience of bar with wood, lighting, and layout was great too.

Popped in for lunch. A real Irish pub. The food was good, service friendly and helpful. Interior is quaint with booths to sit in. Good selection of local beers. Has a great atmosphere.

Showed up early for Sunday brunch so we enjoyed a couple of pints while the food was being prepared. Justin was our server and when he found out we were touring the country he recommended we drive the Copper Coast (we did and loved it). I am a Vegetarian and had plenty of food to choose from. Staff were helpful... More

Thanks to Justin, we not only got a true welcome to our first day in Ireland, but also got some great travel tips on what to see and where to go. Thanks again Justin!
