Description: Matt The Millers Bar & Restaurant is a perfect location for your meal, private parties and festive occasions. We offer an extensive drinks menu and the same high service standards that we strive to deliver in every area of our operation. Enjoy lunch, a romantic occasion, dinner or your own private event. We cater for every taste. You will also find some wonderful private snugs throughout our bar. These snugs are perfect for small get-togethers where you can enjoy all that Matt's has to offer in the secluded confines of these salubrious havens of comfort & quiet. We have been partying at Matt's for 20 years now so we have learned a thing or two about throwing the very best parties to suit every occasion. We have Traditional Irish Music every evening along with more music on select nights of the week. For private parties, we can put any one of our five bars at your disposal and we are happy to do as much, or as little as you need us to do to make your party a huge success. There will always be a warm welcome and a hearty smile waiting for you at Matt's. Our bars are ergonomically designed to ensure only the highest possible standards of service whether you're having a morning coffee, an afternoon tea, an early evening beverage or a pint with friends at one of Matt's famous party nights. Every effort is made to ensure that our extensive menus of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are constantly updated to make sure that every taste is catered for. Our extensive food menu is also available at the bars, with breakfast, lunch and dinner served. So, whatever you're looking for and whenever you want it - you can rest assured that it's waiting for you at Matt the Millers' Main Bar.

Everyone goes there so it the place to stop. There is live music nightly and the place does get crowded. I had the fish and chips but was disappointed. My fish was over cooked. The staff was friendly though.

Despite some comments about this bar, we enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the music. It's not a totally authentic Irish village pub, but how can it be? It's in the middle of the city, is definitely on the tourist map and is not pretending to be anything else.

Music is great so i went there twice. Both times the food was absolutely dismal. The menu is really misleading-very far from the fresh homemade write-up they give on the menu. I complained the last time and got nowhere. Do not come here for food or customer service.

The atmosphere was great, the service and food were excellent.
Not sure if its a regular thing but there was live music the night we were there. A great kick off to out two weeks in Ireland.

We were happy to sneak upstairs to a quiet corner and relax for an hour or two, although we did find service to be very slow. Our starter was forgotten (without a word of acknowledgement from our server, though he remembered to remove it from the bill) and our mains were fairly straight forward. I had the slightly bland bacon and egg burger, and he had cajun chidken burger (which he seemed to quite enjoy). I think it was a bit over priced for what it was - would expect to get the same (if not to a higher standard) in any other popular small town pub serving grub anywhere around the country.This place seems very popular though, has a nice atmosphere, and I suspect you could do a lot worse. Kinda wish we had gone up to Langtons, though. Ah well!
