Decent bar food, but not strictly Irish, run by eastern Europeans. Try hard to welcome you, but pub rather lacking in atmoshere, and Guinnes just average.More

We found Breathnach's under new ownership with Lucas and is still recommended by local B&Bs. He serves a great steak and a great pint. They also appear to have a new group playing trad music which is very good.
