Visited our first night in limerick. Got the pub plate with a mix of bar foods which was so yummy. Waitress was super friendly and attentive. There was a live band playing some awesome Irish music. Definitely recommend and would go again.

Was in here for a night out with a large group. There was live music and good atmosphere. Wouldn't stay here for the whole night but did the job for an hour or so. Bar Staff are nice before it starts to get busy.

This was a fantastic pub to visit. We popped in for the one on our way home and ended up staying here till closing time. The building itself is massive and has many floors which is always a positive thing. The staff were very friendly.
