Came into The Local due to the owner of our Bed and Breakfast telling us they would be playing traditional music that evening. Great place, great music, and friendly people!

It's been about two months since my last visit to this fine establishment, where I'm always met with a warm welcome from Helena & Donnchadh. I've tried a lot from their menu & suffice to say......it's all good. A must stop for a weary traveller...More

What a cosy but modern pub. Really lovely. Excellent atmosphere in here with equally excellent music being played in the background. Possibly the best priced drink in Dungarvan - a night out here will by no means break the bank!
