It was great to see the Hi-B open again, great atmosphere and the bar staff were so friendly.It was also great to see the No mobile phone rule in place.
So much nicer seeing people chatting and laughing

Upon entering this pub, I got an immediate vibe that I wasn't welcome, I was on the receiving end of a packed room of questioning stares. In the next moment, two very elderly and pretty smelly fellows began chatting with me. I was surprised they very adversarial in their remarks and it was very clear I wasn't welcome. I left immediately. I found a great pub around the corner, "The Poor Relation." I was chatting with a local and mentioned my experience earlier that evening. She said that pub is very "cliquey," so really just the approved group is welcome there. After reading the other 1 star reviews, I feel fortunate it wasn't worse. So let me save you a cringe-worthy experience: DO NOT SET FOOT IN THIS PLACE.

Really enjoyed our visit here. Very quirky & old worldly. Forget your mobile phone & converse with those around you to contribute to 'The Craic'.

John at John Cronin's recommended the Hi-B to meet the locals. We had a good conversation and enjoyed good beer. It's small, but quaint. Enjoed immensely.

Imagine walking into a Neighbors front room , equipped with a bar & that’s where you have found yourself with the Hi Bi . It’s a Cosy bar with a great atmosphere on Oliver Plunkett street . It was particularly busy the night we visited , but a great buzz was palpable . Well worth a visit .
