Quick lunch during tour and had delicious shepherds pie special and got the last one. Quickly and pleasantly served. Menu looked good and if my lunch was an indication of quality would be good also.

We stopped in today for some lunch. The service is fantastic and the food hearty and served lovely and hot. The Irish stew was excellent. Other meals ordered were the soup and the fish and chips. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and the staff really go above and beyond to cater for your every need. A very friendly welcoming pub.

We drove into town at 9pm having made a long drive from Kildare to our nearby house rental. While they were closing down the food they said they would check if they could still cook for us and they did. As I was traveling with twin four year olds, a husband who also happens to have a bday today (and... More

For a town of 600 people, this little village delivered the best fish and chips that we had in entire trip to Ireland. Fresh, crisp and tasty. The service was sensational and the manager/owner made us feel right at home with the locals and the locals made us feel right at home in their pub. Great experience, a true memory!

We only went here based on TA reviews. Burgers on first night were fantastic, fresh, filling and cooked to perfection, service a little slow though. My husband is a plain eater, hard to please sometimes (with food) and he wanted to go again the following night which we did. 2nd night might have been a totally different restaurant, again hubby...

We stopped by for a quick snack and pint after visiting Staigue Fort in the rain. A good fire was going in the grate and we were invited to take the table immediately next to it. It was so comfortable, we decided to make it a full lunch and were glad we did. My wife and I both ordered fish... More
