This gastro-pub is positioned right beside the quay of a fishing town in a picturesque bay on the South Coast of Ireland. It is a great location, very friendly service, serves excellent food at reasonable prices, and, it has free reliable wifi; who could ask for more!

Dined here for dinner with family. Lovely pub/restaurant in a fabulous location! Food was very good except for the chips. Soggy and inedible.

We stopped off here on a journey from Cork to Waterford. Lovely place, didn't have food but it looked good. We had a coffee, which was good and a scone with jam and cream and it was hot, very nice. Would call again.

Stopped here after a day if strolling. Nice friendly atmosphere. Casual style. Did find the upstairs area very stuffy and warm but downstairs was airy.

Thank Yvonne C
