A real Irish pub with generous portions of excellent food at really good prices. The drinks are big and the prices are low, great place to eat and relax. The staff are all friendly and efficient.

We've come here many, many times...with kids, without kids, at a table, at the bar, with friends and family. We love all the spots, and corners, we love the comfort, the fill-you-up-food, the service, the atmosphere. Such an easy place to go to, even when...More
