Authentic Irish fare with lots of atmosphere and a great selection of drinks from the Celtic world. Live music most nights, hard to beat this place.

The lunch portion of Poor Man’s Pie was yummy. Fish and chips were good too. A thick piece of fish. There was malt vinegar to add. For dessert we ordered ice cream pie and it was enough for the three of us.
