    We called in after dinner to sample the local music.

    It is quite a small place and can get crowded, especially around the bar. Our group were a bit noisy and received dirty looks from the licensee and some of the customers who were interested in listening to the music.

    Can't blame them really - this is a serious music pub.

    We had a couple of drinks and left. There are more "open" music pubs in Kinsale!

    Very nice seafood. Tried lobster and was delicious. Also tasted a couple of interesting vegetarian options and they were good. A short drive from down town.

    Traditional old Irish pub. Fabulous for tourists and locals alike. A step back in time. Lovely open fire and a great pint.

    We stopped in late afternoon to have a whiskey tasting flight. This was our first experience with Irish whiskey and it was great fun. Bartender Alex is knowledgeable and did a fine job educating us. The bar has a good, funky atmosphere and was certainly the right place for our “school “. Most enjoyable.

    Seemed to be the most crowded spot in Kinsale. Live music was good covers and lots of people dancing. Quick bar service.

    Stopped in for a pint on. Nice May Day as the patio looked inviting. Staff was friendly and the pub has charm. Overall it was good enough for a second pint

    Dropped in for a pint after a drive from Dublin. We appreciated the chance to dip into a nice local pub and avoid the bus trip folks. A couple of nicely built Guinness’s for my sons and me, a reasonable chardonnnay for my bride and we left refreshed.
    Highly recommended.

    Standard Irish pub meeting all the expectations. There are plenty of tables in the side room or towards the back. Bar service is fast. They poured me a Shamrock Guinness which I heard was a bit of a tourist thing but the place was filled with locals.

    Not somewhere i shall return to. Great potential but lacking so much.

    If only the management invested
