Been here a few times. I haven't had any of the food, but the beer is cold and they've got a good selection of beers on draft (as well as cider.) We actually left to go to another bar and ended up coming back here...More

Walked in an a bunch of cops were hanging around, so you KNOW it was an authentic Irish pub, right down to the young lady (from Cork) with the Irish lilt. Nice bar with windows that open to the sidewalk

Came upon this place after dinner across the street at the White Horse Tavern. We heard the music spilling out the front door- and had to go have a look. What a pleasant group of musicians! Its a great spot for a jar of Guinness....More

A great Irish Dive Bar in downtown Newport. I actually went here twice. The food is your typical pub food, but all really good. Great selection and variety of beer. They also have two dart boards!

Stopped in for a beer (or 2). Had a nice vibe to the place. Bar staff friendly. Quiet mid-week but very busy Thursday on.

I visited here last night with my wife. The atmosphere was pleasant. The place was very crowded. Nice crowd of people. The staff was courteous and efficient. The bathrooms were very old but serviceable. Adequate selection of beer that was served quickly and was cold....More
