4 of us stopped in to see a local band play. The room where the band played was in the back of the bar and really isn't set up properly for music. The stage is pushed far back into the room and I would say...More

This place is just basic enough to be like a true local pub in Ireland. Not a kit bar, they know how to pour a Guinness properly here! Atmosphere not fancy but friendly prompt service and lots of open walls to the outside
