Great live music - traditional Irish folk music. Neat atmosphere. We're Americans and we we were surprised by how many Americans were there, some were embarrassing in their behavior.

Enjoyed the music which started at ten each night but also went there early evening to enjoy their excellent guinness. Friendly, chatty staff, traditional feel, a real pub. They do not focus on food although there are snacks available but great for music and atmosphere.
