This is a quirky place located inside a former school house that is popular with the locals in Swords, Ireland. It gets crowded after 7:00 pm, so arrive before then to get a table. I had the ribs (awesome) and my wife had a burger with sharp cheddar and bacon. We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere was a plus. Items on the menu include multiple variations of burgers (1/2 inch thick!), seafood, steaks, ribs, soups, and salads. Prices are reasonable and portions are larger than average.

In the centre of Swords, was a decent bar with plenty of selection and the prices were ok. Has an area outdoors where you can also drink and smoke.
Taxis were easy to come by outside the bar.

Great atmosphere, great service and delicious pub food. They offer a varied menu that has offerings for everyone. There were young people there, families with children, older people...it was a fun, wholesome atmosphere.

Excellent service and delicious food made this an experience we will happily choose again if we come back to Swords. The day after St Patrick's was an ideal opportunity to sample the local food and drink and neither disappointed, the local brew proved very popular amongst our party! Although the restaurant was busy we weren't rushed at all and there was plenty of room between tables to not feel overcrowded. Service was quick and staff very friendly and helpful. All round good value and a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
