Friendly atmosphere and staff - a quiet lunch with my son sharing 12 oysters and a couple of steak sandwiches - over a couple of pints of Guinness - simple classic fare. Recommend.

Only had breakfast here as part of my stay at Murphy's B&B which was nice and tasty. Good selection and friendly staff, also had a few pints in the afternoon which again was nice and tasty. Can't comment on lunch or dinner menus or evening entertainment as we went to O'Hares across the road. In a good central location though.

Food is great. Staff are friendly and warming and so too are bouncers. The Loft has the best cocktails but alcohol over priced, for a younger crowd but olders would enjoy too.l

Went in for dinner as I had heard the food was good from a local..well she was correct..

Good for a night out, music is cheesy but fun. Tiny club though, felt like someone's living room! Only one female toilet which isn't good. Staff were friendly though.

This is a nice family friendly bar, which has a a restaurant and serves bar food. Reasonably priced food was good but no brilliant. Service was very good. Good stop for lunch and a pint I would suggest. We were there off peak and it was fine, would say it gets packed very quickly in the high season.

Nice lunch of oysters and Guinness. Would recommend without hesitation. Great staff, good food and quick service. Stayed in the area two years ago and they even sent a car to pick us up for dinner. An easy place to linger with the log fire and music.

Thank Howell J
