We stopped off here after visiting the Guinness factory. It was really busy and we had to wait a while for a table. Once we found a seat we ordered food as it looked amazing. I ordered the Guinness beef stew and my partner the...More

A nice spot in an historic pub. It was crowded but we were able to get a table and eat relatively quickly. It's worth checking out, it's been there since 1198.

Love this little pub. Great food and great traditional music. Sunday afternoon seisuns are the best with Joe and Johnny. Venue is small but always busy. Plenty of craic. Other musicians join in making it a truly fabulous afternoon.

We so enjoyed the atmosphere and the history of this place. The bar was so friendly and the food was very good. Even though it is a tourist destination it is a great place to hang out.

Ambiance is fantastic and the history of the pub is pretty neat. Service was terrible. Lunch was even worse: fish (fish & chips) was DRIPPING in oil. Could not eat it. My son's burger was so hard we had to cut it with a knife...More

We visited on a Saturday afternoon. It wasn't very busy and we easily found an empty but uncleared table on the patio. As soon as we sat down, a server came over and cleared some of the dirty dishes and glasses but he did not...More
