Currently in the start up phase, in the warmth of the old Leinster Arms building is Goldy’s! – a cosy pub serving nostalgic comfort food and booze with a modern spin. A home away from home, Goldy’s! is a community hangout for every dog and their human. What she lacks in refinement, she makes up for in good times. The door is always open at Goldy’s!
