Oh My God!! Food is fresh and huge quantities!! Seafood chowder has huge chunk of salmon. Many of it! I ordered this as a starter and also main. Wow! Huge mistake! Seafood chowder itself can stand as main course. This bar is famous for selection of whiskey, too. So don't forget to get your Irish coffee.

Looks smaller from the outside but is really big with a lovely beer garden. Had the all day breakfast. Some items missing and had to be asked for but then came promptly. Large portions and well cooked. Although waited a good half an hour for a Guinness alongside the food. Seemed the staff were a little overwhelmed but very friendly... More

Recommended by our B & B host, this restaurant did not disappoint. Pub grub and lots of televisions allowed us to keep up with the Euro cup competition while quenching our thirst and getting our appetites satisfied. Was a little too loud to try and have any type of conversation but was akin to a sports bar here in the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at An Pucan. We had great seating near the front to watch football, then the musical entertainment. The waitstaff was efficient and took good care of us. Good selection of beer and especially enjoyed the steamed mussels, which were probably the best I had while in Ireland. Would highly recommend this to all who visit... More

Great venue, fantastic live music, amazing range of drinks, extensive food menu, fresh / tasty / well-prepared food and last, but definitely not least, friendly efficient welcoming staff. We had a wonderful evening before heading out to Ireland's Smallest Comedy Club. THANK YOU.

There are some new items on the menu which was nice to see as a vegetarian. I got the tofu and chickpea tartlet. I enjoyed it apart from the tofu which I have had in a vegan pasta dish here too. I did not want to complain as maybe it is a personal preference but the texture of the tofu... More

We chose this spot looking for a relaxed rehearsal dinner venue and couldn't have been happier with the way things turned out. A few tables were reserved for our large party (40 ppl) but most of the time our guests were walking around and enjoying the live music and absolutely stunning beer garden. The service was incredibly kind and obliging... More
