Although I admit to loving taking in the sights, visiting museums, gardens and the like, but I also love to eat and drink well, especially in a place that is so full of tradition as this pub. This is the original Durty Nelly’s in Bunratty and always fun. In fact, it is a little bit of a living museum – with centuries old whisky casks and other mementoes everywhere.

Whether you are up for Atlantic seafood chowder, fresh Atlantic oysters, “baked fillet of salmon with seared prawns, hazelnut and parsley butter with shaved fennel” (doesn’t that sound yummy?) or baked lime and passionfruit cheesecake, a good Guiness and good company are guaranteed! Not to forget the live music – there is always some musical event going on! Check out this video, which shows you the atmosphere better than any words can.
