The family run bar, off licence & microbrewery is now in its third century of trading as a Public House and has come up for mention in publications all over the Globe.

Had to stop in because of the name. Fairly standard Irish pub with nice patio out back. Was hoping to get more history from staff on Reilly surname.

Manager Brendan was extremely rude and self-important. Would not go back as a result of this. Pity because the bar itself was quite nice.

Established in 1856 Dicey Reillys is one of those typical Irish bars offering a good selection of beers and whiskeys. They serve a range of beers from their Donegal Brewing Company: excellent quality and well worth trying one, two or three. Friendly, warm welcoming staff...More
