My husband I visited this pub while in Ireland in 2017. After visiting a few other pubs, we stopped here and this was by far our favorite. We luckily got to enjoy some live music and a few pints of Bulmers and Guinness of course!...More

Best pub we had been to on our trip around U.K. and Ireland to date. Loved how it had multiple floors and bars. Great music playing by local artists.

Went to hear a great band play at Quays with a group of 20 from Boston. The beer was cold, the band was hot, we had a blast!

Staff were very friendly and service was good. The food quality was terrible. Tiger prawns swimming in chilli sauce. Fish and chips partially cooked. Also having only one craft beer on tap in this day and age is just not up to standard. Very much...More

Great building, an old church, or at least has many church architectural details. Service was good an so was the food. Traditional Irish options. Looks like a fun spot for music later in the evening.
