An important step of most trips often involves hunting down a good local watering hole. Desired characteristics include friendly staff, good food, even better drinks, and a warm, inviting atmosphere. Enter: Irish Times Pub. Live music seven nights a week, a traditional Irish menu, and all the beer you could hope for … this public house is an excellent stop to wet your whistle, fill your belly, entertain your ears and satisfy your soul. If you’re looking for something a little more private, you can try your luck to snag the O’Hagan’s Snug, which is a cozy, one table room at the back of the bar. The Snug is just the right hideaway while you’re killing a few hours waiting for the next ferry run, playing cards, and sipping on pints – it even has its own mini flat screen TV, which is perfect for catching live coverage of your favourite team playing on the telly.
