These people know what they are doing. Best wings and beer you can buy in Ireland. The people there are amazing and you will never be asking for help. They always have whats on their menu.

I come here every year I stay in Swords for dinner, drinks and live music. OK prices and a good selection of draft beers and dinners. I'll be back again next year.

My dad and I went here last night. We had recomendations about this place, but the expectations were reached and passed. So good food, service and price. One of the best Irish Pubs in northern Dublin.
