Visited with friends and ate here six evenings out of seven so sampled a wide selection from the menu. All meals were excellent, generous portions and good service. Highly recommended and will eat here again on future visits.

Stayed just down the road and visited twice, both occasions we had dinner which was excellent and very good value. The atmosphere in the bar is very friendly and would highly recommend the Guiness.

We enjoyed two visits to this pub while we stayed in Gurteen. The bartender was very nice and the food was terrific! We recommend the beef stroganoff, lasagna and the fish and chips. Our favorite dessert was called sticky pudding I believe.
