This is located on the Bunratty Castle & Folk Park grounds and it's pretty incredible. It's been around for more than 400 years and has some of the original interior. The place is definitely a pub, with a huge bar and all kinds of patches...More

This was our first stop after checking in to the B&B on our first day in Ireland. So we had to have a Guiness and some fish and chips (with mushy peas!). They were both perfect. What a great start to our vacation.

I was here two weeks ago with a small group of Americans and an Irish woman. It was at the beginning of our trip and we were getting acclimated to the thick Irish brogues, lingo, and culture. Someone suggested to one of our travel companions...More

This place is old, has a smell, and isn’t the cleanest restaurant. That’s exactly the point. Felt pretty authentic. But, the service and food were top notch. Their brown bread, wings, soup, mussels, and whisky icecream were worth the visit! 💚☘️ and service was quick...More

Great food and great service. No better atmosphere encountered in Ireland. Best photos of our trip. It feels like you live in the Castle next door.

They tell me this is one of the most famous pubs in Ireland. It is multiroomed and some may find it dark and dingy in places but enchanting nonetheless. Food is lovely---I had the fish and chips and husband had the steak. Very tasty and...More

Located in the shadow of Bunratty castle our dinner at the pub was lovely. Fine Guiness, good food and trad music...what more could you want?

A place that was established in 1620 must be doing something right. Ancestors I have never known could have eaten here. The present generation enjoyed our dinner on our last night in Ireland.

I believe they can seat 50 but this most likely will be outside, so you very much depend on the weather. Please also note that restaurants in Ireland generally close early. Better call them directly and check if they can... More
