We called in here on the Sunday Night of the Fleadh Ceoil and the place was hopping with a really good collection of Musicians playing inside the front window. Excellent night with really good Guinness

Oh I can't praise McHugh's too highly! I have always and ever had a great experience here, and have been here lots. The food is all but excellent, very high quality bar food which is just the ticket at lunch time. I might add that the portions are very decent also - no skimping and you simply won't go hungry....

This bar was a lot of fun. Definitely a younger crowd, but the guitarist playing was outstanding. And the atmosphere was very lively. Definitely would go back.
