The 1954 movie of the same name actually gave birth to this pub and its popularity in general. The film company used the pub as its base and most of the cast stayed there during filming. The pub is stacked with memorabilia connected with the film which shot harbour scenes in the Youghal area and there is a video of the film at the pub.
The owner has produced brochures for visiting tourists which are available in a variety of languages including Irish, English, French, German, Italian and Dutch. Soup and sandwiches are on offer.
