Wonderful evening of good food, great service and entertainment. Dermot Daly singing Danny Boy was practically a religious experience.

Prawns were amazing! Beef stew intense! And the service excellent. Would go again and take in the music show - had a peep and it looked great.

A great venue for good ol' Irish songs. Quite a long drive from the centre of town. Booking essential as very full. A hearty singalong. Food good but limited selection.
