9 of us dropped in for coffee after a 5 hour walk along the coast. We were very impressed with the lovely fire, friendly staff, complementary chocolate digestives as well as mint chocolates!!. We will definitely call again.

It is not the smartest pub in town, but there are not many anyway. Very friendly, a good pint of Guinness and perfect before our meal out.

We are here because everywhere else was booked up. We were told that the chef was new - just there a week, and young (early 20s). We were so pleased to enjoy a really excellent meal. Great balance of flavours and some very adept use of ingredients. Excellent!

Called in with sister for a wine or 2! It's back to how it should be with cosy bar, lovely little Bistro and a great back lounge for playing pool! So clean and homely with a lovely beer garden out back! I'm looking forward to trying out the Bistro on my next visit! Lovely friendly staff! What more can I... More

The pub is now under new management as of July 8, 2016. We re-opened a week later. It is now back to its former glory after a name change back to ... ... Tonn Ruray Public House. Stop in for a visit again. We'd love to see you. It's getting busier every week. Currently open Thursday through Sunday.

This was easily the best pub food that we had on our short break to Northern Ireland. If you are looking for a warm welcome and good food without paying for fine dining, this pub is a good option.

This is the place we learned about from the owner of an apartment we were renting from to "get a proper pint of Guinness." Tucked away on the end of Dundrum towards Clogh, it is a lively and bustling small place. Popular with the locals, Brigid the owner sets the friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The real treat is if you... More

A small friendly pub with a lovely open fire just right to round off your evening. The staff ensure a friendly welcome where you will be able to join in the craic if you wish.

This is a local pub that is the gathering place for the community. Taken over by Bridget a few years back she has cleaned up the clientele and knows how to create atmosphere and how to serve. We enjoyed an evening here in conversation while staying at The Carriage House next door. If you are looking for a real Irish... More

Went here just once for a drink and I was very impressed, its quaint and welcoming pub. Not really much else to say, would recommend coming if you're in the area. Shame for the bad reviews but I always take those written by "1 review members" with a pinch of salt. I was told by a real-life Irish man that... More
