When we arrived we were told there was a problem with the kitchen and there was no food which is fair enough. The next day we went back and the kitchen was up and running. When I walked in, I thought I had gone blind as I couldnt see it was so dark inside. We wandered around and found a... More

Our first night in Ireland after a long day of traveling. We just wanted some nice warm food and a warm pub to eat it in. We got that. The bar staff was friendly, welcoming and patient. We had a lovely meal and enjoyed watching the "locals" come and go.

Really fun local pub that welcomes families with children. Food is really tasty and the beer is cold. What else could you ask for?

This is the perfect place for either a relaxing and very tasty meal in the restaurant or in the traditional pub environment. Due to its lovely set up with access to play area for kids and the beach behind the building it makes it the perfect location for families. We will be back!

We had two very delicious meals that were much fancier than the standard pub fare we expected. Great little spot right on the water, we would definitely dine here again.
