Quality of Drinks

Typical Irish corporate fare, albeit with 1 beer on from West Kerry brewery, which counts as a minor miracle. Decent whisky selection.
A really quite typical Irish pub decor but not too heavy on the flags and bunting, which helps. Cosy gloom accented by candlelight, some coastal decor as could be expected. A great view out of the back.
A local’s pub by day and by night, with local conversation that gradually gives way to a more communal atmosphere during the evenings. The lady of the house keeps charge very well.
Limited outdoor seating, snacks, occasional local events
Value For Money
Fair for the area.
Homely, personalised village pub with views of the mountains and coastline. Rustic wood panelling and some typical coastal pub decor. Some live music and good grub and a keg offering from local West Kerry Brewery which, in ultra-conservative Ireland’s beer culture counts as a win.
