Very busy pub with Irish music and dancing. The food was good but the experience was better. Must do if you haven't seen any Irish dancing before.

This pub was recommended to us by locals, plus we'd seen it on the internet. We went for dinner and to experience the music. There was a duo playing and they also had a step dancer. It was just music, though, with no singing. It was a nice intimate setting and the place was packed. I ordered the Sensational Seafood Pie on the recommendation of the server. It was very good, piping hot and a huge portion. Very good. An all around good dining experience.

Quaint pub within walking distance of downtown Limerick...just on the other side of the bridge. Very friendly staff and atmosphere. Very good pub food. The entertainment and music was very lively. Enjoyed the live demonstration of Irish dancing. Can choose to sit outside on patio with heaters to take the chill off!
