Booked a room at Garvey's because of its location in the center of town. You enter through the bar as the locals stare to get to a small reception area then wait for the barmaid to come check you in. The room is nothing special...More

Bar man was very rude to my friend's and I once he heard the Dublin accent and wouldn't serve us a drink and asked us to leave. I wouldn't go back even if they offered me money or free drink

Stopped here while waiting for a train to Dublin. Very friendly staff, reasonably priced Guinness, and take out food to take on the train. It worked out great and the food ( pizza and wings combo for 15 euro) was actually quite good.

Had a good time at Garveys, right across the street from our hotel, close to Eyre Square, friendly bartenders and staff. We enjoyed our evening there!
