We enjoyed a light lunch of soup and Irish brown bread. So yummy and filling! Just a hop, skip and jump from the church and across from the pond.

Dropped in here for a quick bit during our four night stay in Cong. It was that good the first time we went back. Good menu, cold beer, friendly staff. Worth a meal or two if your in the area.

A quiet Monday evening in September. Fish and chips were good, not a huge portion, just right, crisp batter. Good range of Irish craft beers. Traditional Irish music. Very pleasant. Good service.
