“Great Lamb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

It was my meal in Ireland and I loved it. Very friendly (like all Irish people) good atmosphere and good beer/wine.
We had Beef & Guinness stew and lamb stew with creamy mashed potato. Both were brilliant, large portions and very tasty. Mashed potato was unexpectedly delicious, full of butter.

I must say the burger on the next table didn't look anything special.

I would definitely recommend for a good meal/drinks.

“Best Lamb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

It was my first meal in Ireland and absolutely loved it.
Great atmosphere, great beer - wine and a fab food.
We had lamb stew and beef & guinness stew both were faultless. Lamb came with creamy mashed potato and it was unexpectedly delicious; full of butter.

“Great Spot for Dinner/Drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We stopped in after a long day on the Aran Islands. The cheese plate was delicious as was the rest of our meal. It had a great atmosphere and really felt like a local kind of place.
