The bar was small and quaint. They should have some more books if they are going to call it the library bar though :) Staff was friendly and nice. We got our tasty coffee here in the morning too.

Arrived with a crew of six for a pint and a bite before dinner. We kept trying to flag waiters only to be told that, "I'll be there in a second." They were not busy.

We had tea for 6 (15 Euro PP) and it was enough to feed an army. The atmosphere was lovely and the service was good. Everyone gets a huge amount of food and not problem to take away any extras.

Basic bar food, did not have tea, and library is a bit of an overstatement, very few books. Service was average, though the Guiness and Smithwick's was lovely!
