There were 2 levels with Irish music on each. Dining is on the second floor & we were seated not far from the stage. Food was average pub food, but tasty.

I visited this bar on recommendation from some friends live music was outstanding early gig followed by late gig. Friendly staff from door to bar. I wouldn't be looking for fancy wines or cocktails but beer and live music very good.

The food was great and the price tag was very fair. But it was BUSY. The thing that really upset me is the person behind the register did a currency conversion without asking. Which charged something like an extra 5 Euro to my card. So disappointing. If you here on holiday from another country, make sure to have them run... More

I only visited for lunch on this occasion, however I do tend to visit every time I am in Cork as this is a very lively place with good food and great service and always greeted with a welcoming smile. Plenty of live entertainment going on day and night upstairs and downstairs.

Had some of the best fish and chips ever with a few pints of Guinness in a very lively atmosphere. Great live music was an added bonus.
