We were told by a local to make sure we stopped at Griffin's and we weren't disappointed. The pints were cold and the atmosphere was true Irish. The tvs are all tuned to Irish football and the locals are friendly. It is not uncommon for bars in Ireland to not serve food. So, unless you are having lunch, plan on having a pint or two at Griffin's and moving on to dinner at another local establishment such as Guy's.

Great experience, great live music, all around wonderful experience. Personal attention by David Griffen with our group and memories from an earlier visit by one in our family many years earlier made the visit more special. Craic.

The last time I was here I remember leaving feeling like a regular and it has not changed. We arrived in to brilliant music, lovely atmosphere, a smile and a welcome. Got served really quick. They have a great space out the back, pool table and looks like they do some food during the day. This place is definitely a favourite of mine and will return.

A great experience. A lovely little pub. The food, drink, staff and atmosphere was what you would expect. Staff were chatty, personable and polite.
All in all one of the better places we have eaten on our trip from Dublin to Limerick via the north of Ireland. Thoroughly recommend the place

Loved the wonderful selection of whiskeys (and gins!). Friendly, knowledgeable staff, great live music - all in all a lovely place to spend an evening.
