We stopped into Buggle's for a couple pints to escape the rain. This is a no-nonsense, 1-room bar with a local flavor and lots of charm. We found a comfortable table by the warm peat fire and enjoyed a well poured pint.

This is a charming pub with great character... and friendly conversation. The art of pouring creamy Guinness is alive and well in Buggles.

Stopped in for a bite to eat. Good service, good food, fair prices. Busy place with little alcoves decorated in a style that goes back many years.

We found this place halfway through our visit and it definitely has the best craic in town. Full of locals, the bartender was excellent and the proprietor was in and out all night. Reasonable prices relative to other pubs in town.
