They had live music from 7-9. Played our requested Bob Dylan tune. Local bought us a round as half the room sang along! One our favorite pub stops among many!

Wonderful service and explanation of the various whiskeys we tried with the tasting platters. I would recommend tasting your whiskey in this way when you come here as you can sample rare whiskeys available only in Ireland. Garin, a whiskey expert was very helpful!
