This is a Nice Old Irish Pub and they pour a good Guinness. The Crowd was quite Friendly, all tourists that we talked to. The Staff was not particularly Friendly, fair service. This is an ok place, but there are better pubs in the Neighborhood.

Fairly common Irish pub, a bit cramped and loud with an affinity for hard-core rock songs. Bartenders were pleasant but inattentive. They do have some local beers and an average selection of whiskeys. We were here on an early evening and it was quite busy...More
