This is just a great little place to have a beer or a meal with friends. It has many traditional Irish dishes, like stew, Shepherds pie, Fish & Chips and even Blood Pudding. The beer selection is great too, especially if you like Irish or Belgian beers.

Wide range of beers here. It wasn't quite your typical pub, but it was very low key on a Saturday night. Nice atmosphere and well put together. Just a couple small tvs but just right.

The Bards is a nice place to have some drinks, and some dinner if you are into UK type food. I am not an expert on this type of food, but I think what they have here is pretty good. This is a pretty standard Irish bar, and is usually fairly quiet and relaxed, but can get busy at times, especially during soccer season. They usually have a pretty good assortment of draft beers, and are always offering new choices as well. The staff is laid back and friendly, and the place is welcoming, in good shape, and very clean. Give them a try!!

If you're looking for a great Irish Bar with the best Guinness in town - look no further. This is the perfect place for a quiet drink with your SO, or with a group of friends. They have a great menu, a great happy hour, and a fantastic staff. It also has the look and feel of a traditional Irish Pub. I strongly recommend this place if you're in the area. Slainté!!!
