Shoot the Crows is a small traditional pub not to be missed. A great Irish pub with good range of beers and great staff. A place you could stay in all night!

This is a true gem - a totally authentic Irish pub with tradition seeping from the walls. Tight on space but that's part of the charm. Had a lovely evening with friends and really enjoyed the music...all round a very enjoyable evening.

Yeah, if i'm ever lucky enough to return to Ireland, we'll def plan to be in the area and swing by. Trip of a lifetime. Unbelievable scenery and such lovely people. We felt welcomed everywhere.
