“Sunday evening slow down”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 days ago NEW via mobile

We ended up here on the recommendation of our taxi driver, Jimmy, great atmosphere and top class Irish music. Don't come if you want conversation- only for great music and whiskey.

“Unpleasant place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Prices are way too high and the service so slow you can take a nap on your empty table! My friend had to wait for more than an hour to have an average salad! Anyway I loved the sandwiches, the chicken wings and the fries, all very tasty. But the waiter was very rude to us, that's definitely not how it should be. Not recommended for girls alone because of the huge amount of drunk men harassing you.

Great place! Friendy staff and god atmosphere! Love the live music! If you stay at Harding hotell the pub is just downstairs so really easy to find your way back when the pub closes ;)

“Loved this bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

Loved having this pub attached to our hotel! Great live music at night and filled with lots of locals. Everyone was singing and dancing - it just had a great vibe. Felt like we were part of a local "secret"! Many different beers on draft so there's something for everyone! We ended every night here and got to know some of the staff. Thanks to them I learned a way to enjoy Guinness - with a splash of black currant juice to sweeten it just slightly. Thanks to Natalie, Padhraig, Mo, and everyone else for fun memories!
