Had a lovely lunch here. It's busy but the service is outstanding, the whole place runs like clockwork and they turn over the tables very quickly. Food is lovely and reasonably priced considering it's on an island. Most of the tables are sheltered which is brilliant with the combination of Irish summer weather and Covid.
Don't leave it too late if you want dinner here though, it's advertised as food til 9:30pm but we arrived at 7:30pm and their kitchen was closed.

I have visited this pub a few times over the years and like it, live music, super atmosphere, great food and friendly staff.
Visited for dinner last week after being turned away from another restaurant, bit of a queue but eventually got a table thanks to Grace and her understanding of our situation. Had a great burger and chips washed down by a couple of very nice pints. Thanks for the warm welcome Grace. Beimid ar ais

We ate here on a hugely busy Saturday night, with people queuing down the road for tables. Staff were organised, good humoured and helpful.
Local Aran island goats cheese salad was delicious and the cocktails were great.
Can’t wait to go back when island is fully opened up

Friendly & efficient staff as it was very busy. We waited 15-20minutes but it could be longer depending on the time you arrived.
Drink was good. Food was standard pub grub, bit pricey.

Bhain méit liom agus mé fhéin an-taitneamh as an tráthnóna a chaith muid Tigh Watty ag deireadh mhí Meithimh. Bhí ardchaighdeán beatha againn agus d'ólamar scoth na dí tar éis lá aoibhinn a chaitheamh ag spaisteoireacht. Rinne na freastalaithe an-iarracht leis an nGaeilge agus muid ag suí chun boird. Fíonnach oraibh ar fad agus beidh muid ar ais go luath! Charlo
