The Village Inn, better known as Durty Nelly's, has completed the renovations which have been going on for the last few weeks/months and opened their upstairs bar and grill, and quite nice it is too - good service, a good looking menu and a nice balcony all adding a rather refined contrast to the straight up Irish flavour of the downstairs bar. We decided to call in as we were passing and swiftly installed ourselves on the balcony - don't expect to get away with this at busy dining periods if you're not eating though - we managed it by dint of turning up just near kitchen close. Some changes have also been wrought downstairs, with the amenities remodelled and moved right to the back of the bar, adding some extra floor space, but with the disadvantage of opening up the 'snug' area in the back corner, where the pubguide would often settle in for a few quiet Guinnesses and a Newcastle Brown (which incidentally is no longer here, sadly) We think the renovations are a good move, and are probably going to call in to sample the Sunday Roast, which has apparently been proving fairly popular, and maybe Tuesday trivia too. Cheers!

very loud backpackers leave this place at all hours of the night... not fun when you're trying to sleep. Good on em for having fun, but how about a bit of consideration for the poor enhabitants of Glenmore rd

If you are from Ireland & Dublin avoid like the plague. Nothing Irish about this place at all, well except for lots of culchies!
