Stopped by for a pint and some lunch. Good pub food, some local beer to try. Nice and quiet when we stopped in, I think they did have some outdoor seating.

Friendly staff, nice atmosphere with regular live Irish music. Only stayed for a drink, food looks nice, mid range price, around 15-20 euro + for main meal. No food options for vegans, only pizza or soup for veggies.
