Large pub/restaurant. MultipleTV's showing sports, music videos with live music on some evenings. Very popular and very noisy and not cheap, but an enjoyable experience.

The breakfast was good but the american was really weird, tasted almost burnt. Great value for money though, visited again in the evening for a guiness and the atmosphere with the live band was great.
