Overview
More
A small, traditional Irish pub with unchanged interior and live music 4-5 nights per week, with an open fire on colder evenings. Carberry's Pub (C. Ní Chairbre) has been in the same family since 1885 and has been in use as a pub, long before that. It is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 9pm each evening.
