We stopped off here on our bike ride around the island. Excellent mussels, chips and Guinness friendly staff and there is a small children's menu also.

Lovely place to stop off for a drink or some dinner. Lovely fire warmed us up. Staff were welcoming and looked after us well on both of our visits. Live music every night which is a highlight.

Excellent food with good drinks choice in front of a roaring fire near harbour. Waiting staff were great and made the difference.

We have enjoyed many of the legendary Irish pubs during our 3 week road trip and of course the quality of the Guinness remains the acid test between the good and the great. However, as someone that has now reached the age where my beer...More
