Pros: Conveniently located in the center of town. Welcoming staff. Very clean and great food. Cons: Although we love music and have stayed above pubs before, without issue, it was hard for sleep. Foleys have live music 7 days a week lasting until 11:30- 12 pm. This may be a bonus for some people, but we left tired after our 3 night stay! Suggestion: Maybe do acoustic music during the week and save the amplifier for weekends!
