Friendly staff. Varied menu. Good food. Irish music and dancing. Nice looking place. Plenty of parking. Nice option after visiting Muckross Abbey and House or if you're staying at Friar's Glen.

Great place for a Guinness, with live music and traditional Irish dancing some evenings. Food was good, service unrushed and friendly. Two minute walk from the Muckross Abbey which is beautiful.
