“Genuine Irish”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Traditional Irish pub - no airs or graces. Great location. Serve a great pint of goodness. No music but loud with great banter! Hot open fire. Interesting angling and nautical bits and pieces dotted about. Typical Irish bar staff - the best in the world!

“Christmas night out in Galway”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

this decent pub is ruined by the surly bar staff who seem to be labouring under the misapprehension that they are employed as prison officers. They are rude, aggressive and aloof and they wear this house style as a badge of honour. Special mention for the snotty woman behind the bar who told me to mind my manners for simply asking her to leave a water jug in place the better to use in my whiskey.

Some of the best pints of Guinness in the area. Great crowd and friendly staff. Ticks all the boxes.
