It's been a while since I have eaten here, but I have eaten here about 7 different times and each time was nicer than the next. The staff, the atmosphere, the food was all about par. I haven't eaten here for an evening meal yet, but for lunch it is lovely. The place can be a little busy, so it pays to be here early, the service and quality of the food is excellent. The place is so homely. It is also lovely to see our old house converted into a fabulous restaurant. Well done Colm and Tom and all the staff at the South County. Looking forward to eating here again soon.

This has to be one of the best pubs I have been in!! Open fires galore, Irish charm, friendly staff and nice cosy seating including a snug! I was delighted to see posters for an Irish conversational group due to start soon and also for a table quiz for charity!! The smoking area also has two open fire and two flat screen tv's, class!!!!

Visited twice since Christmas as it was recommended to me after friends had their Xmas party night out here. I had the Seafood Chowder & Chicken Skewers and was very impressed with the service, atmosphere and the type of food on offer.
They also have Irish trad sessions regularly so I was pleasantly surprised on one visit to be able to stay after on dinner for a few drinks and listen to the music. Great night had by all. Will definately go back again.

Visited the place twice over the Christmas period for a drink. Very friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere.
Most of the pubs in the Douglas area have become 'superpubs' almost akin to nightclub venues. However this pub despite having been extended in recent years retains its charm & warmth.
This pubs also serves food.
