Our last meal in Ireland, before heading back home. We really enjoyed a fantastic dinner of grilled sea bass and grilled steak! The portions were very generous and the sides were stellar. Loved the service and ambiance!

Seafood platter and Chicken Vol-au-vent were delicious. Really big portions for the chicken vol-au-vent and very tasty. It's a very popular, busy bar and the staff are very attentive and friendly.

Stopped for a pint which turned into 2 and had a great time. Music not to start till 9:30 but with a 6:00 wake up decided better go to bed. Great service and atmosphere. Food looked great but had already ate.

We really enjoyed this place. Lovely mix of hotel guests and locals. Live music most nights. The food was good and the portions were large. You could split a meal here and be very full. Would like to see a better balance of pub food...More
