Please ignore the five star reviews…

How is this place getting five star reviews?!?
Terribly rude manager/owner. Clearly hates his job and should definitely not be in hospitality!

Unfortunately he’s getting a lot of business right now because he’s a huge outdoor seating area and, sure, we’re only allowed to eat and drink outside at the moment.

Please avoid giving this place the business, do him a favour and let it close down… there’s other nicer pubs with much much nicer staff and service.

Desperate service
Aug 2020 • Solo
I sat and waited for service for thirty minutes. Very poor. After a further ten minutes I did not receive my pint. Very poorly staffed. I then left. Very disappointing. They did not seem to care. Avoid on your stay cation.

Fantastic Atmosphere
Jul 2020 • Family
We visited The Greyhound and Market bars last week and sampled such warm hospitality! The staff were so friendly and gave us great tips on the local area. We all had delicious pizzas and drinks! We dined al fresco which was an added bonus. Great to see social distancing guidelines being adhered to by the staff yet not taking away from a fun, holiday atmosphere! We will definitely return! Thanks

Pint and a pizza?
Jul 2020
On holidays from Mayo and thoroughly enjoying our stay in Kinsale. I left my cranky husband and hungry kids in the Greyhound while having a "quick" look in the shops. My husband had a great pint and pizza and staff were excellent with the kids. This bar has perfect outdoor eating facilities considering the current limitations. I would like to thank the staff for their kindness and the friendly banter. Will be back again!!!

Unbelievably bad service today. We had food and drinks and were planning on spending a lot more time and money in here but the Manager was incredibly rude and ignorant towards us. He Ignored us for 20 minutes after encouraging us to come I side. I went to ask for a drink and was told 'they can usually forget about customers who are inside' by the barman. After a good few eye contacts and noone coming near us I went to the bar to pay and left as I would rather give business to other much nicer bars in kinsale

Better, decent west cork bars in the town.

Rude staff
Jul 2020 • Friends
Visited this pub over the weekend with friends and were greeted with very unfriendly staff. I understand the circumstances with social distancing and how there have been evident changes to the pub scene but we didn’t feel one bit welcome. When there is such an emphasis placed on “staycationing” this year and then to be treated like such outsiders in the town, despite trying to pump money into their local economy.. it just makes you wonder. This was the only place where we received a frosty reception on our trip to Kinsale. Would not return again.

Great Old Pub
Oct 2019
Oldest pub in Kinsale. Terrific location in the heart of the town. Great locals pub atmosphere. Because it is the oldest pub in Kinsale, it will obviously be crowded during high tourist season-- but it was perfect on a mild mid-afternoon in October!

Friendly local with very friendly locals
Oct 2019
Told about this place by taxi driver so paid a visit, for a late morning session to watch the Ireland rugby match, went into the back room with the very friendly locals and had a wonderfull time with my son&wife,Even the low headroom on the door did not bother us six footers that much or the slanting floor(after a few jars of stout.
