I met my Irish friend here and he highly recommended this place for me beforehand. It was truly worth the money - the combo plate with two meats was one of the best dishes I'v ever eaten! The staff was nice and helpful and the bar itself was a sight.

In for a quick bite, service was prompt and food was really good. First time I had peach cobbler, won't be my last 😊

Go for lunch here on a regular basis, food is incredible. Great staff too. Very reasonable prices. Portions could be a bit bigger but that is just me being greedy.

A great place for informal dining. The BBQ food was top class; everything from the ribs to the chicken wings was cooked to perfection. The bar boasts a good variety of beers on tap but it's real jewel in the crown is the whiskey selection. The staff were friendly and helpful making the experience all the more satisfying. To round...

Wonderful place for a bit of grub, a pint and a good whiskey. Also if you want a barman with a bit of irish craic then chat with Dean. LEGEND of a guy u will enjoy all the staff here. Its a top notch spot and best for me my bus home is right outside.

What can I say!? By far the nicest BBQ food I have had in Ireland. The staff were amazing, with Bairbre recommending the chilli dog special, washed down with smooth pints of plain. Bison might become my new haunt.

This place is eclectic and feels great. It was busy when we arrived but the waitress went out of her way to ensure we got a table as quickly as possibly. This is straight up food. All the focus is on the taste. Beef brisket with fries and coleslaw- yummy. Really good food. The mustard and bbq sauce are amazing.

Busy spot so booked in to make sure we got a table. This place must be on every tourist itinerary out there. You have to be a meat lover to eat here, vegetarian options don't exist, so don't ask. The rack of Ribs is truly awesome. RECOMMENDED. Staff are excellent and keep things moving.

I really like this bar but I had a very disappointing experience here when I tried to book a table for a friend's birthday. I booked the table 5 days in advance and asked for the window seats. When we arrived the staff had reserved a table for us OUTSIDE (temperature was around 0 Celcius) and in the SMOKING AREA.... More
