We were told about this place by a bartender. It was so much fun. We met local people, danced and drank the night away listening to traditional Irish music

Had visitors over from England. Great wee traditional pub. Music is great as well. But busy at the bar. But took advice from TripAdvisor and went into Robinsons bar.

Live music was fantastic! Started at around 10 pm and was totally worth waiting for! Drinks were slightly cheaper than some other bars but still standard city prices. Great atmosphere- if you want to experience a proper Irish bar with a proper Irish band then...More
