First visit with friends will not be returning. Had steak special we couldn't cut through the bread. The kitchen is open so all the frying smells were in the dining area our clothes stank. No hats or gloves worn by people preparing food. Utensils in plastic looked like old margarine tubs. A lot of people going in and out through... More

Homemade soup and soda bread was a delicious lunch. Friendly staff and a buzzy atmosphere. Breakfast lunch and dinner or a coffee/tea stop. All food looked lovely

The breakfast here is excellent. ( I can get my eggs cooked soft :-) ). Their Omelettes are available for breakfast; unusual for Ireland. The Tapas dinner on the 1st Friday night is excellent. The available wines are limited but match my taste and I think are a great value.

Good value for money, I had the omelette and my wife had the bacon bap. This will be somewhere that will be visited again for lunch. Unlike the listing for opening hours that say closed... More
