The Salthouse Bar is a rare find in a major city. With over 120 bottled craft beers from right around the world. Whether it's IPA or Rauchbier we have it covered. 21 Taps of which at least 6 rotate, (sometimes we get carried away), and a cask engine which pours a new real ale every week!

All this in a typical Irish setting; small, cosy pub, perched on Raven Terrace over looking The Claddagh. A unique atmosphere for those who love their beers!
