What can I say simply the best. Excellent experience looks out for their guests when they have had to much to drink as others just want your money and put you on the street.

Came across this on our travels and it looked like it would be good - it was! It was quiet on the first 2 trips but it came to life late at night with music playing and time passed on quickly.

Fantastic bar right on the edge of the Bogside, packed to the rafters most nights and blessed with an absolutely electric atmosphere. The traditional music although starting late most evenings, bounces off the walls once it begins.

Great Pub, great beers and friendly service. They have live music every night, and the bands are great! A lot of traditional Irish Music, but also modern music with an Irish Twist. Very nice atmosphere here.
