This is a friendly little bar with reasonably priced drinks and good entertainment on the two nights we visited. Would definitely recommend this for a bit of craic.

Now if this was a real competition this pub would get a podium finish. A family run ( 3 Sisters ) pub in the heart of Ardara with music nightly and volunteer singers and players welcome. It is hard to leave.

Great pub only the crowd didn’t respect the musicians. Most were too loud. Even with amps/speakers you could barely hear the music if you were very far away.
