popped in on a wednesday night while visiting Claremorris. Was planning on spending an hour or so - but left 4 hours later! Great music and atmosphere - would recommend anyone who happens to be in Claremorris to visit.

It's a very small pub and family run. I don't think it would be a problem to bring your child in during the day but check with staff as to what time children have to be off the premises.
