  • The pint of Guinness that my sister has looked lovely. The atmosphere was great. It was the only pub that I ever saw one man (American) down a pint of Guinness in 50 seconds. Weird.
  • Irelands oldest bar.. allegedly ;-). very traditional look & feel bar with genuinely friendly staff & lots of international visitors when we visited. good prices and knowledgeable staff when it comes to the whiskeys local & national. well worth a visit when you are in the area or want to tell your friends you have been in Ireland's oldest bar
