Cannot fault The Tavern in any way. We eat here very regularly. The staff are always friendly and food is never not top quality! I always look forward to a meal here.

Just what we needed after a hike up Croagh Patrick. Cold beer, cosy fire and yummy food. Delicious fish pie and chowder! Well worth the visit!

We stopped here on a windy day in February. There was a roaring fire and a hearty welcome. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The chowder was awesome!
