Stopped by to grab a beer and some oysters! Great atmosphere and service was over the top! Will not disappoint and the decor was fitting next to the castle! Great time wish I had more time to spend but had to get to Ennis!

We stopped at Nelly’s after dinner at the castle and had a great time! An impromptu group played music much to our delight and we had great fun listening and singing along. An unplanned and unexpected pleasure!

Great Irish pub with a lively local crowd and a few tourists. Met a local couple there and enjoyed learning about them and the area. Very friendly people there and a very quaint setting.
