Nice enough, not the sort of place that stands out in my mind for any real reason good or bad. The word inoffensive sums it up nicely!

Guinness was good
Niot the sort of place you would go out of your way to go to, but ok for a pint if passing

This place is pretty much what you would expect from the Irish Wishing Well shop conversion chain of pubs with the usual generic draught and plasma screens that show Sky Sports, Setanta (probably not any more though) and GAA.

There were only five other punters, but they seemed like a nice bunch as they discussed the benefits of getting totally plastered. Unsurprisingly, Magic love songs was playing on one of the plasma screens, not that anyone other than the barmaid was listening to it. She said please and thank you and even said goodbye when I left, but she seemed like sheíd had a long day as she didnít crack a smile once.

As I went to use the toilet at the rear of the pub I passed a bloke was smoking at the locked back door inside the pub. He glanced at me and asked if he would be ok smoking so close to the gas canisters, which were actually empty beer kegs. I had a chuckle to myself as he thought he was risking his life just to have a sneaky fag in the pub rather than standing on the high street out the front.

I ended up sitting at a table and reading a paper from the bar that another customer had left. It was here, whilst I was trying to work out why I didnít like this place as much as other Wishing Wells, that two dogs started shagging in the middle of the pub and it took until they had finished for someone to calm the situation.

Iím still not entirely sure why I wasnít so keen on this place!
