A reflection of true Irish charm and friendliness, this vibrant venue has been the recipient of many an accolade. Last year it was hailed ‘Irish Pub of the Year’ worldwide and on our shores, won the award for best live gig and best live venue.

While away a lazy weekend with the fam here and it’s the stuff memories are made of. Take a snap of the little ones playing in the lake, catch up with mates while swigging a cold one or enjoy a hearty lunch with your brood. Anything goes.

Tuck into a menu of traditional favourites. Fish and chips, roast of the day (complete with Yorkshire puds and all the trimmings) and delicious Irish stew, with tender lamb pieces and root vegetables all make an appearance, for the best comfort-food experience outside of Ireland.

The allure of this venue regularly pulls in some famous names to perform their hits. Bob Geldof loves it so much he makes an annual appearance on St Paddy’s Day, while <Nothing Compares 2U> hitmaker Sinead O’ Connor and Bob Marley’s band The Wailers have also taken to the stage in the past.

Any excuse for a party! Whether it’s the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, the Darts Masters, The Rugby Sevens or New Year’s Eve, this haunt knows how to celebrate. Keep up to date with events, for guaranteed good times that you should definitely mark in your calendar.
