This 'Pub' was what I imagined an Irish pub to be like. Dim lighting with a great atmosphere, good staff, great food and then live Irish music and Irish dancing. A great night out.

This Pub is fantastic.
Music, dance and great food.
I have allways loved fish and chips.
Until eating at The Locke, I never new I never had Fish and Chips.
This was the best EVER.
The sea food chowder was spectacular and more than I could eat.

The crown of the evening that made the entire time wonderful was our server Kate D.
She was delightful.
Personallity, and presence was so warm and she made out of town visitors feel completely at home.

This place is the emerald jewel of limerick.

Thanks you and I will be back during my stay.

Good food, attentive service, great atmosphere, great music all on an otherwise dull Monday evening to say goodbye and good luck to our colleague who is moving on to a new job.
