Excellent food, at reasonable prices, with very attentive and cheerful staff. The music session on Saturday nights is absolutely superb, as the musicians run it like a real traditional session, and not a tourist venue-- very welcoming, and friendly.

Dublin Airport us approx 15 to 20 minutes away by Taxi but this of course is highly dependent on the time of day. At rush hour it is a lottery but by evening time it's much easier to get about Dublin.
