Our menu is suitable for vegetarians, but with only a small selection of gluten free meals(we're working on that one). All our staff are local so can offer great advice on tourist spots in our area. we close MON & TUE between Nov - March. Food served from 1pm to 9pm

Thank you for taking the time to post a review, we are glad you enjoyed your time in Bofey Quinn's. I cant take any credit for the food as my husband Niall is the chef.
We are very lucky to have fresh fish , vegetables, and meat produced locally and not have to use frozen.
Hope we have the chance to meet again.

“Too many Tourists on Traditional Irish music night... but good Pub.”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

Bofey Quinns is two pubs in one. It has great character and atmosphere, from musty wood rooms, excellent decor (fishing plaques and an Irish Chupacabra). The Bar itself is lively and with some help you can get a great Guinness, although the Irish Whiskey selection is a bit limited.
The locals are friendly and the music, which is played at the first section between tables and bar, is good. Accoustics, however, are challenging... and if you aren't in the first set of tables past the musicians, it's very hard to hear them, and seeing them through crowds is even trickier.
Also, on a summer night, it can get quite hot in the bar, as there is (as in most of Ireland) no central air conditioning.
Drinks are the most affordable I've seen in Ireland, you get a fair deal for a Guinness, whiskey or mixed drink, and they pour you excellent portions.
On "Traditional Irish Music" night, this pub is *loaded* with tourists. Conversations in 10 different languages could be heard, and at times it was fairly bumpy just getting to the bar or the outdoors to smoke. The most charming and engaging part of the pub were the locals, but there were just too many non-locals (including me) invading their place for it to be as enjoyable as it could be. I have heard that on non "Traditional Irish Music" nights, it is a bit calmer and the local hangout.
I recommend a trip on a non-touristy night, otherwise, the great character of this Pub is washed out by the crowd of visitors.

Thank you for your review, I totally agree, there are some Wednesday nights in August where it is very busy with tourists, but we are the only venue in the village with Irish music, but this can add to the buzz. Saturday night is very different, the musicians are less and the tourists are less, but the locals are out in force. We host our music all year round so it is a very pleasant experience out of season. Also in July & August you can experience Irish music & dance in a seated venue "The Teach Ceoil" in the village on a Thursday night.
I am glad your overall experience with us was a good one, and we are value for money, not too sure what you mean by generous portions with drink !! should I be worried my staff are too generous..
But once again we appreciate fed back, we work hard to ensure any visitor into Bofeys has an enjoyable one, tourist or locals alike.
