The pub is cosy and the service friendly. We were all hungry and the service was fast. The menu is not very Irish (nor are the drinks) with hamburgers and pizzas. My hamburger with chilly was reasonably priced and tasty, but to get anything extra,...More

It's an ok place with nice interior and a games room but not much room to sit at the bar like you would expect of an Irish bar. Not a good place for the solo traveller to make friends.

Nice atmosphere and is always busy. I've had mixed experiences with the staff - some being friendly and some being fairly rude and overly stressed. Good location!

We only had a couple of beers and didn't stay longer than 2 hours - the place is welcoming, the service was average, but no communication whatsoever.

Made the mistake of visiting here once. Terrible service, staff and v rude and slow. Far from an authentic Irish bar excepting a couple of signs and bad Guinness. No atmosphere a typical pretend Irish tourist bar. Avoid avoid avoid
