On the recommendation of the waitress, we tested two different local beers. They were delicious and tasted exactly like described in the menu. The decoration is authentic and the atmosphere really nice. A great place!

Visited the Glen Tavern with my family. Great experience from the minute we came in. With covid restrictions we felt at ease with social distancing. The staff were very attentive and were clearly trained on the guidelines. Food was excellent. We had cod and the...burger and left nothing on the plate. Kids were well looked after also. Would highly recommend a visit when in Limerick!More
