Went to Matt The Miller Bar for dinner because it was opposite our hotel. I had the spare ribs and my partner the steak. The spare ribs were great and the Irish music set the scene perfectly

Located right across from where we were staying and recommended by the concierge as a place for Trad (traditional Irish Music).

One of our favorites. We ate in a dozen or more during our three weeks in Ireland. This was fantastic. Great music. Big beer and whiskey selection. Fantastic seafood chowder. Just great and a super medieval town as well.

6th on Tripadvisor,I'm afraid not, deep fried frozen cod, dried up, when I advised waiter he said he would mention to chef, why, I don't know. Friendly enough staff but poor quality food - best to give it a miss

We had a great dinner upstairs while the place was pumping. I was amazed when the bar manager saw my Guinness was poured a little low and grabbed it from the table to top it up. Now that's service!
