Been a while since had been here , nothing wrong nor nothing special for a few lazy Sunday drinks. Place was busy enough with a mixture of locals and tourists, standard pub grub on offer . Service good and pint was good too Prices a little high on city centre levels . Enjoyable but better on offer close by .

Went here for lunch, looked really full and was ready to leave, but there are two separate areas, walked up a few stairs to second area, and the server offered us the last table. Had their home made burgers which were great. Attentive service from start to finish.

Had an enjoyable lunch here last week. A pub that was busy enough but not full to the brim with tourists and those seeking the noise and exuberance of some of the nearby pubs. I liked the other customers, especially the Two Old Gents we sat next to, who both enjoyed the Craic and were clearly old pals who were... More

Nice buzz about this place with quick and pleasant service. Drink is a bit pricey because of its central location. They do good bar food.

Thank Michael M
