A perfect lunch spot for burgers or fish and chips. Reasonably priced and consistently good. The staff is totally nice. If you don't like crowds or don't want to wait for your food, avoid times when there's a big football match on the TV.

Went here with a colleague for a Guinness. Great looking pub, pretty authentic, and with a great selection of beers. Only thing I missed was the great Irish music so I would not rate it as comparable with a true Irish one.

Always a sucker for good Irish food and beer, however the menu wasn't that impressive. Standard Guinness and Kilkenny on tap. Bar trivia seemed like a hit on a Monday night.
