If you are planning to visit Akvor then you gave to go to Hickeys Irish bar. Full of craic and genuine hospitality. Great beer too. Third time for us and two trips planned for next year already.

We popped in a few times for drinks, friendly staff. we chatted to Irish, Scottish, Welsh and English folk and everybody appeared to enjoy the impromptu sing-alongs when various musicians would appear unannounced. Cheers ! Thomas & Kate, Dundee, United Kingdom.
