Highly recommend this pub if staying in Cong. We would put this above any of the hotel options. Very good for kids too, they were made to feel very welcome.

Every time we visit Cong I have to come here just for the Sticky Toffee Pudding! Everything else here is good to- but be sure you leave room for dessert!

Stopped in Cong for lunch, several recommended places were closed so we ended up at the Crowe's Nest. Had traditional Irish breakfast and it was huge. Great find.

We wanted to go to Pat Cohan's pub from the Quiet Man movie, but it was closed for the year. The food here was good and had a pint of Guinness.
