What Our Customers Think


"Went here yesterday for a trim while over from England to see family. Best barbers I've been in. Atmosphere is unbeleivable, owner has some serious craic and all the staff get right involved. Not to mention one of the best haircuts I've had. Fly back for it any day!" 
- Alex


"My son went in here today and got a brilliant hair cut! Mark had so much patience for him and spent a lot of time cutting his hair! I would really recommend this place! Brilliant Barber, thanks so much!" 
- Andrea


"Always a great haircut and a bit of craic when you go; still come up from Kilkeel to get my haircut there, so can't recommend enough!"
- Rory
