Popped in prior to show next door. Very dull inside and in dire need of a serious makeover. Toilets smelly. Could be a nice experience if only the decor was addressed. Gin and tonic and sparkling waster €10.50 but I guess that is town prices....More

Sharing a last name with this bar, I was very excited to go. But it surpassed my expectations. I had to wait a little bit for a table, but the food and Guinness was worth it!

Brilliant pub, always a good crowd and vibe in the place, proper auld pub with a nice pint of Guinness. Nice untamed decor and furniture adds to its character. Good location, very central. Well worth checking out.

Same round of drinks ordered and changed different prices. Not acceptable. Probably mistaken as tourists.

Felt the pub had probably been exactly the same for a hundred years. Very old fashioned and traditional.

Ducking in to dodge some raindrops, we were just looking for a dry place to wet our whistles, and expected a typical tourist spot. But Brogan's was lively and the pints were top-notch.

This is a place that hasn't changed over time .... in a good way. It's a fine pub to have a drink or two and a chat in, before moving on elsewhere. With a pub like this you know what to expect, and I suppose...More
