We had a relaxed lunch and enjoyed some really lovely craft beer in a pub with genuine atmosphere and welcome. Great pub food, great beer, you must go.

This was a wonderful stop on our tour. We met Peter Curtin the owner and head brewer and sampled some of his beer. What a treat to find a craft brewer in the land of Guinness! (Not that I don't love Guinness mind you!)

We loved our food in two different days. We had the best fish and chips ever really well cooked, moist. Succulent. We tried the local produced stout and I have to say that is even better than Guinness.

This place is legendary – a memorable venue for traditional music sessions for well over a century and an award winning pub restaurant. It manages to retain its sense of history by the simple wooden furniture, colourful décor and lots of paraphenalia on the walls....More

Sorry I cannot answer the question. I dined only in the establishment, and did not know that it was residential.

Description
The pub is open all year round from 10am until late. Food is served by Kieran's Kitchen from March until beginning of November. Last orders at 8.45pm. In spring 2011, Peter Curtin embarked on a new endeavour: He set up the Burren Brewery in the Roadside Tavern in Lisdoonvarna. The building, which in 1865 started off as a pub, then was expanded into a bakery, now also harbours a micro-brewery under its roof. His Burren Gold (lager), Burren Red (ale) and Burren Black (stout) are one of only three micro-breweries mentioned in the Lonely Planet Global Craft Beer Guide! At the same time it is a restaurant - Kieran's Kitchen - serving the best food from locally sourced ingredients. It is also a renowned music venue for traditional music with musicians gathering here every night during the summer months.
