I had the lamb shank (17.50€) the lamb had the texture of shoe leather and the taste of a dirty old sock. I am not sure what the cook did to this meat, but I have never had lamb so poorly prepared.

We have been here multiple times over the past decades, and have enjoyed it every time! The food is always great, and the location is super convenient to Bunratty Castle.

A must visit when in Bunratty. Staff are friendly, nice atmosphere within and a great pint of Guinness. The only mistake I made was not eating here, but will do the next time I’m in the area. Can’t fault it. Definitely recommend.

Great music great food great This was really a neat tavern with the feel of a local hang out. Somewhere where local people probably go to eat drink and be merry.
