This Irish pub is a old staple place in Bloomington. The decor is unique. Love the poitin ! Distilled Irish liquor with over 40% alcohol. Great digestive drink... also recommend the blarney balls.

Always friendly knowledgeable about the many many whiskies behind the bar. Even if you don't know what you want they will lead you in the right direction. The fish and chips is spot on. The only slightly off thing is the mussels...no broth. But I...More
