It's a fantastic pub. The service is great, drinks are superb and the atmosphere is always great. There is however, a serious issue with the security staff. There attitude toward the public is completely unacceptable, based on both myself and family being in there on numerous occasions, and for that reason it is probably a better alternative to head to The Barrack or Dinn RĂ­.

crowd can be a bit up themslves. apart from that its the only place i go on a friday..the beer garden is great, the djs play mad stuff all together but great, the girls are easy, has to be one of the best looking pub interiors in ireland. bit expensive but worth it i think

The price of drink is crazy and it rises as the night goes on. Most of the staff are rude - learned it from the manager, I asked him on a few occasions why there never is water in the taps in the ladies and he just walked off. Obviously hygenie not a priority for the med. It has started to get v. rough, not surprising as the bouncer only interested in chatting up girls.

awesome.best pub in carlow. the place ALWAYS have a crowd, and its just a lovely place to have a night out. its a nice warm pub,the decor is brilliant, the djs play great varied music...bar staff are quick and friendly, and there is different 'zones' within the pub, some areas are quieter to have a chat, and others are loud for those who want to go mad. the only slight negative is the pricing is slightly higher than other pubs, but even when I go to another pub thats cheaper, I find my self heading back to the Med! keep up the good work

I am from Carlow and have sampled various pubs in the locality. This is the best bar in Carlow. Granted the prices are a tiny bit more expensive but I think that is warranted as they also provide a DJ, excellent floor service and the decor is well thought out. There is always plenty of staff on so you aren't left waiting. All of the staff are very friendly and get to know their customers well.

I was on a hen night in here a few weeks ago and it was brilliant. I had reserved an area and when we arrived the staff had put up Ballons which i really thought was a nice touch. The staff were fantastic and the music brilliant they played everything from 80's to current chart music. Would highly recommend this pub. The smokers were delighted too as the smoking area is definelty the best i have ever seen.

Im a Carlovian and have frequented this bar many times over the years. Its too crowded during the weekends, they pack people in like cattle. The atmosphere is always muted, possibly because the majority of its patrons are middle aged and have gone from discussing their fictional property portfolios to how much they have lost on shares. On the up side, the staff are friendly, decoration is lovely and the bar itself is well located. Seemingly its a well known meeting up point for couples inclined to 'Swing' and Thursday night is apparently gay night.

This pub lacks athmosphere. Bar staff are rude for the most part. Music at a nightclub noise level. Lack of seating is a problem. Gets very overcrowded and excessively warm inside.
