It was quite. Food was excellent. Service excellent. The guy who served us was a real pro. We had our grand daughter who he really took care of. Sadly we did not get his name. However it's the place to go for lunch

Perfect for the Winter... fireplaces everywhere and gigs even during the week on Wednesday. They have a good selection of beers and the staff is very friendly.

Just home from my sons christening and to say we were impressed would be an understatement. Everything was perfect from the gorgeous food to the helpful and friendly staff as well as the welcoming atmosphere. Thanks to everyone for making the christening so memorable, looking forward to visiting soon again.

I`ve visited your pub while we were hanging in south of Ireland. It was one of the best bar´s we visited. The atmosphere was very good and the bar service was great. Kevin treated us very friendly and always had time for our questions. We will definitely be back again.

Our family of five, (including 3 kids) stopped here for dinner on our way back to Kinsale after a day of touring. The meal was huge and very nice. I highly recommend this place.
