Great pub to hear the beautiful Irish music. The pub has good music performances, as well as a good restaurant with typical dishes and great beer choices. The service was helpful and fast.

We offer an exceptional Food Menu for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Whether you are a tourist looking to experience an Irish Breakfast or some great fresh seafood or a local looking for fantastic lunch time value, we have it all.
