Really enjoyed the live music - which is good, because it was loud enough to preclude all conversation while the musicians played.
Scotch egg was a let down for me, but the goat cheese stuffed dates nearly made up for that.
Bartender was extremely pleasant and pulled a proper Guinness for my guy. ESB on tap for me.
End of the bar was a little tight for a couple to sit and eat at, but we really enjoyed our visit.

There's not much better than enjoying a drink along with a cheese/charcuterie board here. Fantastic ambiance, friendly/efficient/informed staff, and high quality food with great presentation.

A small comfortable place with a large whiskey selection. Felt like a regulars type of place, but through conversation it seemed it was the atmosphere and not the customers that gave it the local feel. Sat at the bar and got good service. Saw the food come out and it appeared to be a cut above normal pub fair. Recommended as a good non tourist bar in a very touristy area.

We try to resist Irish bars when on holiday but this was a genuinely lovely bar that was not tacky Irish. Great whisky collection-one of the largest I have seen outside Scotland. Friendly staff and the Guinness wasn't bad either

Our server was a fantastic girl from Ireland, she was charming and lively. Our bartender was Irish as well, and poured an excellent pint of Guinness.
Love the fact that there are no screens up everwhere, music was at a volume you could still speak over. Oh an they have authentic Tayto crisps.
Regrets? Only that I hadn't discovered how magical this place was before now. A real treat, especially if you have been to a real Irish pub before, and know the truth.
