Loved it great decor! Friendly staff fast service. We sat in the bar but it was very family friendly on a Sat night.

Great comfort food. Irish cottage feel with lots of antiques about. Roast chicken special with mashed potatoes and asparagus done to perfection. Chicken curry not enjoyed. Corned beef plentiful and good. Crab sandwich special very mild tasting. Great ambience, lots of parking and great prices.

A true Irish Pub in North Conway. Try the Irish Sampler. Their Pot Pie is wonderful, the Shepards Pie extraordinary, But the Stew is awesome!

This place is great for Irish food and classic "comfort" food. Their portions are large, menu has something for everybody. The service was excellent and the atmosphere is fun and friendly.

Look forward to this special on Thursdays! Nice size app, perfect portion for dinner, and a tasty treat. Odd man out can eat alone for $14.95. Can’t beat this awesome deal.

Agree with arriving earlier rather than later. We were there at peak for lunch and sat in a lovely location at 11:30. I might add, we never felt rushed even when they were busy.

This is a moderately priced restaurant. An average priced meal runs around $15, some higher some lower. Obviously, beef dishes are higher.
