After a long day and a late lunch, we found Fiddler's Elbow near our hotel and stopped in for a quick pint of cold Smithwick's. We ended up staying a few hours and having a few more pints. Clientele was a nice mixture of locals and visitors from all over the world. Staff was very nice and the bar food... More

Popped in for a quick Guinness whilst the other half was getting ready. Great little place, shows the horse racing. What more can you ask from an Irish pub.

If you enjoy sitting at a table with some disinterested waiter taking your drinks order, getting it wrong charging 15% service charge and wanting a tip then ignoring you for the rest of the night don't come here.

Popped in here to watch Wales in the euro semi. Got a seat at the bar. Great bartenders. The Irish guy working was super attentive and never stressed. I work in a bar myself and was really impressed. The girl working was really friendly and chatty. If I had more time in rome I'd definitely visit again.

Small great little Irish bar in Rome. It's a hole in the wall in a small street that no one goes down. The owner is extremely friendly. Great place to get away from tourists. Highly suggest to stop for a couple pints. Not a place to eat though

Very busy pub with a good choice of imported beers, as in most city centre pubs imported beers are not cheap, but the pub has a great atmosphere with live Irish music played on the nights we were there

I'm used to go there, because you'll find an Irish atmosphere, the football soccer derby, or (better) music, also live music! The best Guinness in Rome!

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
