We pop into the pub for a quick sandwich and was very impress with the food, service and excellent coffee. This pub really has a lot of character and is satiated in the hart of the Limerick.

Too many of the so-called Irish pubs are kitsch mixtures of mass- produced 'antiques' and the worst of American sports bars. This place is the opposite. It is quiet, authentic and palpably alive. The staff are genuinely friendly and knowledgeable - and witty if you...More

Really lovely place to get a drink and not be dogged with loud music and a rowdy crowd. Really helpful bar staff, great atmosphere and, of course, beautiful Guinness served perfectly.
