We came here for a few drinks knowing there was live music. It was great as there were loads of musicians playing traditional Irish music. I loved it! Plus they had a good selection of gin!

The barman was very friendly and brought the Guinness over only when it was perfect. All the customers new each other and talked to everyone including us. We had a bar meal of new spuds. cheese. bacon & spring onions. It was great.
