Came to hear the singing and acoustic music, and also had a fish and chips. The owner made sure I had a comfortable seat and everyone was friendly.

Stayed in Ballycotton for a week, went to this pub everyday for about a week. The fish and chips were tasty and fresh, the cider was cold and the barman was friendly. Lots of big screens for the football and live music sometimes. Over all...More
