Edward Langton’s information
The restaurant within this enormous, snazzy pub seems able to seat much of the town (certainly most everybody’s here for Sunday lunch). The food is quality trad Irish: never-ending bowls of boiled potatoes and desserts like toffee and brown bread pudding with hot butterscotch sauce. Regular dinner-and-show specials for around €40 are popular with locals and tourists alike.
