Our family had a gathering after the wedding rehearsal dinner at the pub below. The food was good, service was excellent, and even some local musicians. A great spot in the center of the town.

We stopped in here for lunch. Loved the beef and Guinness pie. Also had a nice cold Smithwicks red ale, which is my favorite Irish beer. Very nice. Huge portions. Very friendly staff, I’d go back! My daughter had a sandwich, and she also liked...More
