Myself & my girlfriend were doing the tourist thing in Ireland, when we happened upon Lisdoonvarna. we went into the market across the road to find an ATM, the clerk said there wasn't one in town but if we were looking to have lunch, we should try at the pub across the road.
We did & we were delighted to find a cheery bloke greet us as we walked up to the bar. he enquired what we were looking for, I said a feed & a couple of pints of Guiness.
I had the bacon & cabbage ( simple yet excellent) & the missus had the beef & guiness stew (even better). The publican was a complete gentleman & the beer & food were top notch!
We told everyone we saw for the next week how good it was & will definately frequent this B+B if we get back to Ireland again
