Great traditional baked Irish ham and the lady at the bar was very helpful for a tourist like myself. Would recommend this bar over others in the area due to the better service at the pub! :D

Liked Brennans a lot. Had lunch there and brought friends back for dinner same day. Good Irish bar ambiance. Service was quick and food excellent. Irish stew and fish & chips particularly good. Would be very happy to eat here again!
