Stopped in because the music sounded wonderful from the street. Entered to have our daily Guinness and about 30 min. later my husband and our friend who was traveling with us (and his wife) took over the guitars while the two musicians took a break!...More

Went for lunch nice good food and reasonably priced. Didn't go back in the evening as we were looking for a quiet drink. Music was pumping out of it in the night time so good if you want a lively drink

Small bar on the corner. They have great Irish music daily starting at 3 or sometimes 6. Pictures all over the walls of celebrities and a giant hurly stick over the bar. Good food and drinks.

This is a dive to look at but that is why you need to go, great beer, great staff and great atmosphere. Really enjoyed Saturday night with a bloody good band playing a mix of rock and reggae. Looking forward to next time.

I have to say that I just visited the pub but I didn't see the picture that you talk about. If it is truly there I would not visit again and I agree with you that it is sick.
