4 tv sets. Barmaid starts her shift and puts all tvs on soccer. When asked to put back on original sport on one of the tvs claims other customers are watching soccer. The Eagle House, a short walk away, was very glad of our business.

The manager "Rock" is a rock star who kept the pints coming all night with a smile while we enjoyed the Irish music and meeting new friends. We returned every night during our holiday. The burgers were good too!
