“Real Irish pub”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

A great pub. A great service always and a traditional feel. Irish music played regularly and a lovely fire burning. No better way to spend an evening

“Friendly Pub”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

visited the Widows on a Friday night whilst staying across the street at the 7 Horseshoes - we asked if it would be possible to watch the rugby which was not a problem, Brendan also sorted out those in our party who required it access to the wifi network. All-in-all a plesant visit with good beer and friendly service.

“A warm welcome”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

The Widows Bar is an old world establishment which has excellent traditional music nights with session musicians and regular band nights. When you enter the bar your welcomed by a warm and friendly atmosphere. The bar owner Brendan is a friendly and jovial host who takes time to welcome all visitors to his bar. It is a joy to sit by the open fire listening to the traditional music whilst downing a lovely pint of the black stuff. True bliss. Well worth a visit
