Really good venue. There is music upstairs and downstairs and plenty of room too. Well worth going to both for food and a night out!! Recently booked Monroe's for a party and couldn't have been happier. Food, live music, seating all spot on!!

Gave in my expensive hoodie and they gave me a ticket. When I came back with the ticket to get my hoodie back, the young lad could not find it. He called over a bouncer to come help him but he was no help either. The bouncer called over another member of staff who managed to find the guy who... More

Extremely disappointing experience here. My friends were here for a night out recently, we left our jackets at the table, where they were all robbed from. What disappointed me mostly was the lack of help from staff, I approached a bouncer and told him all our jackets had just been robbed, his reply was 'well it wasn't any staff, sorry... More

Visited Monroe's to listen to Freddie White in concert. Thoroughly enjoyed the music and the venue was spot on for an older audience. However, I was ticked off by the young 'Popeye' table cleaner/bouncer for talking to one of the people I was with! That was while others wandered in and out chatting and sometimes stood blocking peoples view without... More

I stopped by this place based on reviews I read and word of mouth. The live music was good and it seemed like a cool place. We decided to leave after having a drink. As I was walking out, someone tripped me...didn't realize right away that it was on purpose. I looked down to see what I tripped over and... More

I love this venue. They always have great live bands and a disco in the back bar if you fancy a change is scene. The band on Saturday 13th of February were excellent. I couldn't find their name in any of the immediate surroundings but loved them. Bar on the top level and two bars on the bands level and... More

Stopped in here for a pint because of the music we heard as we walked by. Ended up staying 3 hours because the music was so good, and the patrons loud, but very friendly.

We stumbled on this place during our vacation and absolutely loved it. Great selection of Irish beers and whiskeys coupled with great music!
