Great venue. Outside area is great and heated. Inside area had couches and very relaxing. Security at gate is reassuring. Live music adds to the atmosphere.

Hiya , yes Irish traditional folk music is played by a good band in the bar section, if you get bored, more contemporary style music is played in the lounge.
