J. & K. Walsh Victorian Spirit Grocer


J. & K. Walsh Victorian Spirit Grocer Reviews

  • Stopped in for a pint midday. It is a lovely unchanged Victorian 1899 grocer and bar building with a rich history. It is small and there were other patrons but it was so quiet. The quietest establishment I have been to in Ireland.

  • WOW. Best Guinness on the planet. I did not like Guinness prior to having it here—sincerely. This place is great for both a quick drink and a long night. The staff is wonderful, the drinks are perfect, and it’s situated nicely for small groups to socialize. It’s top of our list to visit when we return to Ireland!

  • Really authentic Victorian pub in the centre of Waterford. Very old school, all wooden seating, no TV and great Guinness.

  • Very small bar and now we were there on a Tuesday in January but by the end of our pint we were the only 2 people there and since there is no music or anything it made the place feel kinda awkward. I'm sure when it's busy it would be more fun. The pieces of history around the bar and brilliant to look at.
