Myself and a mate pulled in on our bikes for a pint courtesy of Alan. Unfortunately the pub was shut due to Covid. However, we had a great chat with him and he very kindly fixed my mates bike. Well done Alan! I look forward...to having a pint in the bar when you re-open.More

Stayed in Inistioge with friends at the weekend. Having tried all 3 pubs in the village, we settled on The Otter. It is warm and cosy with an open fire and was decorated with Christmas Lights for the season. Alan and his wife couldn't have...made us feel more welcome. They chatted to us like old friends and Alan kept us entertained with his sense of humour!!! You get the feeling you are sitting in someones living room. The atmosphere is laid back, the Guinness is Gorgeous and the dogs are adorable. Thanks guys for a memorable weekend! We'll be back in Summer and for Octoberfest. xMore

The dog ought to. Although not over-friendly, the one-eyed Jack Russell will, on cue, run over to the corner, take out his drinking bowl and demand a Guinness. He signals this by rolling over in front of the bowl until its topped up. Not too...concerned wih letting it settle either. The host, manager, and manager's daughter were very friendly and welcoming and there was a lovely fire. (Which the dog lay in front of when he wasn't swallyin pints). And a great selection of painted rocks for sale, of which the boat crew bought one. Definitely worth a visit. We were staying across the road at the Woodstock Arms. (See separate review.)More

Small pub with a big welcome. Open fire to sit by & relax, very homely. In Summer time, there's an option to sit out front, or the back. Locals quite friendly, happy to chat away if you want the company. Alan & family make you...feel like you are in the sitting room, & the doggys will say hello too! Have never sampled the food, but hope to do so in the near future.More

We stopped at The Otter where we were warmly welcomed by Alan and his family. We shared stories, watched their one-eyed dog do tricks (and drink Guinness) and were served a wonderful snack with our coffee. But the best part was the way in which...they treated us like family. Wished we had more time with them. But we have our painted rock to take home to remember them all.More

We went into the Otter looking for food but instead found amazing people! They don’t offer food in the winter, like most villages in ireland, but the owners were amazing! This pub is everything we were looking for in Ireland, walk in, have a pint,...and a great conversation with the locals! Definitely recommend!More

Thus pub boasts a lovely atmosphere, really nice staff and we received a really warm welcome. The hostess provided a welcome spread after our day out. I recommend a visit.

Visited while traveling through the area with my mother. Very nice staff whom we chatted with and they were very helpful with directions in the area. The ham and cheese sandwiches were excellent as was the beer. The type of place I wish I had...in my hometown.More
