I miss this place the most since I left Louisville a few years ago. Bangers and mash, fish and chips, cottage pie and most importantly Draft Guinness. Was always spot on every time I went.

We stopped here on the way to Nashville and it was great. Had the cottage pie and a guinness. Live music was playing and it was really just a fun atmosphere. Food was amazing. We left stuffed for around 10 bucks apiece.

Genuine feeling of a big Irish pub. The food is tasty and authentic. The owners are often in and stop by tables to check in on you. The cashel salad was unbelievable and fresh! Just the right size for lunch. I highly recommend this restaurant...More
