We needed some ballast between the Lee Sessions at Charlie’s and the Lee Sessions we were headed to at Sín É so we wandered around a bit looking at restaurants but everything seemed like TOO much food (we really just wanted a snack to take the edge off). The menu posted outside Dan Lowry’s looked about right…soup of the day and a sandwich would be great.
On the full menu I spotted fish and chips and went ahead with that, instead. More breaded than battered but not bad (you can definitely taste the beef drippings in the chip fat which is always a bonus) and the peas mushed up nicely.
The pub itself has a nice, family-local feel at the early hour we were in (just after 5 on a Sunday). And, like everywhere we visited in Cork, they could not have been friendlier if they tried.
