Stopped in for drinks, and paid €24 for a pint and a large wine. Next door was only €8 for a the same beer and medium wine. No contest where we drank after that. Staff were pleasant enough.

We visited this pub a couple of times for dinner and to watch the footy. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was energetic. A great sports bar, live music venue or restaurant.
