Quirky decor, good food, Irish music. Always come here when we visit. We almost didn't find a place to park on a Sunday afternoon

Had a late afternoon drink & bite here on a visit to North Conway. Server guy was funny and welcoming, beer great, food was traditional Irish fare - fries excellent. Good atmosphere and this place has so much kitsch stuff on the walls and ceiling that your eyes won't get bored!

We had a really delicious dinner here with our 5 yr old. The food we had was delicious. My husband, who is from Ireland, was thrilled to find an authentic Irish chicken curry! The staff and owners were super friendly. We will definitely be back!
