  • Nice old style bar, serving their own brand whiskey. Superb pints.

  • If you come to Ireland, you seek an authentic Irish experience. Guiness might be the the second or even the first thing that comes to your mind. Of course at this precious pub you can enjoy a pint or two yet there is so much more to discover. I simply was stunned by the warm hearted owner Paul and his lovely sister (sadly forgot the name of that lovely lady). It's a family business with over a century and a half of history and tradition, simply caught me right at the spot. I had some of the best laughs of life when I came to Waterford and truly felt welcome. The prices are fair and and the selection of whiskeys is astonishing. I'd wish, I had such a place at my hometown. Highly recommend!

  • There last month. Proper ‘old school’ pub. Full of locals on a Saturday night. No fuss, no frills, no fanfare and learning the history you understand more. Not a great fit for just anybody but we loved it and came all 3 nights we were in Waterford.

  • The Americans were there on June 21, 2023, and had a great time. We even got the bartender to show us his "sexy" smile. Hope to return there again in the near future. PAt O'Malley
