Beautiful cozy room. Shared a seafood platter, smoked salmon, crab claws, prawns and poached salmon and delicious fresh baked brown bread. We had wine and enjoyed the old world atmosphere . We also had a sticky toffee pudding which was spectacular.

You are in Ireland when you enter the Bar. The staff is great and very friendly. They have music some nights and the food is quite good. Try the seafood chowder.
