Tricky McGarrigles is a pleasant, traditional Irish bar with comfortable seating and pleasant decor. The barman was very friendly and the coffee was excellent. It had micro-brewers' beers.

Next up was McGarrigles Pub, a smallish pub with some pretty cool relaxed decor. I think they call this style Berlin retro or something, where the bar looks like your old living room with wall paper, lamps, old chairs, and framed pictures all around. Have...More
