No bad words for this hidden treasure behind the graveyard.
We enjoyed some cold beers And lunch at this lovely managed pub.

All food was amazing, make sure you try the homemade pies, which are delicious.

To make things even better, you can have lunch with a beer and share a cake for only €10 per person!

Travel to Ireland every year in the Dec-Jan time frame. I always go to Kavanagh's on each trip for a pint or two and a great meal - always the coddle. None better in Ireland. Ciaran (classically trained chef) and his sister Ann will ensure you enjoy the best of Ireland with their hospitality, exceptional food, and authentic pub atmosphere. As the 7th generation proprietors of the pub, the tradition of Irish pubs is ingrained in them. You must go there even if it's your only stop in Dublin.

A Pub/Restaurant with history, charm, unforced friendliness and the best Coddle you’ll find in all of Ireland. In 7 trips to Ireland, we ALWAYS make our way to Kavanagh’s!
Family run for generations, you will feel on your first time there that you are welcome, and you soon realize that you WILL come back!
