My husband and I stopped by for a pint and met Mark who owns the place. What a cute and charming bar! Mark was so friendly and we were lucky enough to also meet his brother and dad. Thanks!

Fantastic small little Irish bar. Guinness is best outside Ireland. Who says it doesn't travel? Good place to meet new friends.
