Best pub we had been to on our trip around U.K. and Ireland to date. Loved how it had multiple floors and bars. Great music playing by local artists.

Great building, an old church, or at least has many church architectural details. Service was good an so was the food. Traditional Irish options. Looks like a fun spot for music later in the evening.
