The whole experience has been extremely busy for us, but to come back and be able to eat a fantastic meal and relax is just the topping on the cake, the staff has been wonderful and any questions that was asked from us they answered with a smile

I have eaten in this restaurant 🍴 previously as I stayed in a hotel for a couple of nights, so I knew it's a great place to have a lunch with my partner on our day trip to Limerick. We had Guinness beef stew with mass potatoes and a pasta in tomato sauce with cheese, garlic bread and side salad.... More

I'd normally go there every other week to watch Spanish football matches. The food is tasty and not pricy. The bar has been re done a couple of years ago and it looks really nice. The service though is pretty bad. Specially some of the bartenders are always in a bad mood and are very rude. The pub is actually... More

McGettigans was, since the very first day ot its arrival to Limerick, a reference of the pub life in town, with a great location, a very nice and attractive environment and set up, definitely a great place to watch sports, and an even better group of lads behind the bar, friendly and attentive staff altogether. However, this situation has completely... More

I come to this pub normally twice a week to watch football and rugby matches. Great screen set up for sports, however the service is terrible, every time I come it gets worse. It's a pity that they don't take care of their customers, always in a bad mood and rude answers.

Was here Friday and Saturday as was staying in the hotel for the weekend with friends, the food was lovely and most of the bar staff were lovely to deal with, apart from one man, a tall thin man behind the bar named Dave, was very ignorant to deal with and clearly didn't like his job, on a few occasions,...
