I ate here with my husband last night for the first time. Have been in previously for drinks many times and thought the meals looked nice. We didn't book and got a table very quickly.

Poor range of craft beer, and also very expensive in the one or two they actually have. They seem to offer a lot of cocktails and gin etc so maybe beer isnt their thing.

We had a delicious meal and numerous G&Ts ( a huge selection available) in this great establishment. Our waitress Averil was fantastic. Friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and a wonderful quick sense of humour. A great evening and well wort a visit.

What a hoot. Super casual and comfortable. Staff were ultra friendly and even allowed us to smell a dozen or more gins before we all decided on our concoctions. Yum. Brocktons is my new fave gin, but then again, I didn't try the other 109. Good was filling (everywhere in Ireland) but delicious.

I absolutely love Muriel's. Atmosphere is something different and they have a fabulous range of gin. As a member of their gin club I look forward to making my way through all 80+! They serve food but I haven't sampled that..... yet. Prices vary depending on the gin your drinking. Staff also very pleasant

From the moment we walked in to this quirky little bar we loved it. Extremely friendly and inviting bar staff/waiters. Very nice drinks. Loved the décor. The food was amazing. Better than most food only establishments I've been to anywhere. Decent portion size. Everything about this place will make me come back and tell everyone to do the same. Amazing.

Thank tazarry
