This is an authentic Irish Pub with a very nice ambiance. The music was very good but not too loud. Super interior with lots of flags on the ceiling.

Great spot for live music if you want a place to relax for a bit. Live music usually starts around 10:30 pm. It was down the way from the hotel I was staying in too. A must if you’re in Londonderry.

Shuffled in on a rainy late Sunday afternoon and found a lively filled pub with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. A wide spread of generations enjoined their drinks and sang along and listened to live Irish folk music, classics as well as new arrangements🍀

This place doesn't really need your patronage. In fact, it's pretty packed most nights of the week with its combination of traditional boozing and traditional music. Last time I was here was with a straggler crowd of internationals. And we were welcomed with a warmth...More
