Visited here in the summer of 2010.
Had been aware of this venue for a few years but hadnít got round to visiting. It seems the beer range/choice had gone downhill compared to a few years earlier.
There were 2 redundant cask lines evident.
There was however one non macro tap stout available - Carlow OíHaras which is probably the only one Iíve seen in Dundalk over the last 5 years or so!
Also (see availability) some bottled beers that arenít the standard macro crap.
Bar itself is a trad irish style town centre affair with plenty of bric a brac and largely wooden seating/tables.
Visited around 9pm on a Saturday and we just squeezed into the last table going.
Quite a noisy bar with a younger crowd. A doorman had appeared outside by the time we left.
For Dundalk - as good as it gets in terms of something other than macro!
