This is a true gem - a totally authentic Irish pub with tradition seeping from the walls. Tight on space but that's part of the charm. Had a lovely evening with friends and really enjoyed the music...all round a very enjoyable evening.

Our first night and pub visit in Ireland! Had my very first Guinness! Though I'm not a beer fan, I enjoyed it very much! It was a great way to start off our adventures in Ireland! Very quaint and would definitely recommend!

After hearing about this pub from a few others, we walked around until we found it. It was a long and narrow pub with a fireplace area in the back. He says he had the best pour of Guinness and it was fantastic.

A fine example of a real Irish pub. A nice craft beer from the White Hag Brewery. Open fire and live music from 10pm. A place to visit on any trip to Sligo.

Yeah, if i'm ever lucky enough to return to Ireland, we'll def plan to be in the area and swing by. Trip of a lifetime. Unbelievable scenery and such lovely people. We felt welcomed everywhere.
