This was just steps away from our B&B...full of celebratory families rather than primarily for tourists. Good food, pleasant atmosphere, nice service.

Enjoyed a fine traditional Irish meal in a slightly upscale (for Ireland) setting. A family owned restaurant with the expected warm service. I would return.
