Every bit of food we had there the two times we popped in was perfect...the steak, the Guinness Pie, Mattie's chicken, the champ...the beer is cold and the staff is great. Nothing fancy here, it feels like sitting in your family dining room. The locals were kind and warm to the Americans that couldn't quite figure out which doors to go through! Good laughs had here with ice cold beer.

We enjoyed hearty Irish food at this pub/restaurant. Tasty and generous portions. Friendly service. Without a car it was a mile's hike up the road from Ballygally (not the half-mile promised by its sign). Check in advance to see if there's music--the one night we could go there wasn't, so we cannot comment. But the instruments on the walls show that music does appear! Most of the folks appeared to be local, as it is really off the tourist path.
