To be fair, part of the reason it was so busy was, aside from being the weekend, there was a match-making ceremony/hooley going on. There was live music & a lot of talking & laughter. The Guinness was excellent, of course.More

No reservations needed, just walk in and find yourself a table. Get a menu and order at the bar because there is no table service. Then sit back and enjoy the atmosphere.
