We popped into this beautiful Irish bar Gildea's for supper, the food and atmosphere was amazing. Everyone was friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The owner welcomed us behind the bar for a photo opportunity. I would highly recommend a trip out to Gildea for good home cooked food and craic.

Friendly place with excellent service & interesting ambience -- Irish county flags throughout the place. Not quite as homey as a traditional pub in Ireland but that's only because the furnishings here are nicer! Great wooden interior. Good traditional Irish offerings. The shepherds pie and the bangers were both excellent.

We attempted to go back since we enjoyed our meal there the last time. We walked in the door and were totally ignored by the bartender. With no one to seat us, we sat ourselves, (2 other gentlemen were having dinner). We were still totally ignored. We waited 15 minutes and left and no one even tried to stop us.... More
