One of the coolest pubs I’ve been in. Great staff, great pints, good food. Each room has a fireplace and the place is always toasty. It’s truly an great experience. Very popular with the locals.

This is the longest Pub/Restaurant in the World! It is divided into different sections, each with a different theme which is quite impressive. It also has a large outside eating area. We got there at 3 o'clock, which is quite late for lunch in Ireland,...More
