We had chowder and the multiple appetizer special. A lot of food for the minimal cost. It was tasty and offered us a variety beyond the pub fish and chips. The short ribs were great. The chicken wings were very good too.

Atmosphere, that's what's missing from this place. Bit pricey on the drinks and food. Youd probably do what we did and just have a pint then move on. Sorry

We stayed here mid week whilst on a shopping trip to the nearby outlet village. Got a cracking deal too.

We were early and dropped our bags off early no problem and picked up the 10% discount card for the outlet. Beata was so helpful and very nice during the check in. The room was spotless and better than some hotels I have stayed in.

Dinner was excellent and the wine with the deal was also great quality. Breakfast was also excellent.

A great location for shopping and we went to Dublin before going home and it was a 30minute journey in to the city.

Fantastic I can't recommend highly enough.

Recommended by tourist office, was nice atmosphere & listening to the locals is always fun. Lunch special and crispy duck wrap were both very good, service was extremely slow. No big rush to get back on road, but it was obvious they seemed understaffed.
