The Guinness in here is the best I have tasted in any pub in Ireland. Unreal. Holds the pint the whole way down and so creamy.

Well they have the DeBarras Folk Club on Postcards. Enough said!! Maybe not everyone’s cup of tea. Dark, old, and a thousand face masks looking at you - just the right set-up to become one of the world most famous Irish dive bar’s. Must visit!
