I don't usually frequent Irish bars when abroad because there are plenty of them at home. This was recommended to us by a Portuguese waiter who served us in Jardim dos Frangos. He reckoned it was more of a genuine Irish Bar than O'Neills down by the beach. He was right. It's a fairly quiet spot but the staff are... More

I visited this pub for two days last week and really enjoyed it. Although their local craft beer Pato should come with a warning. I had 3 pints and you would swear I had 10. Good stuff. It has a very authentic feel to the place (unlike O'Neills nearby which is about as Irish as Ronaldo) and it seems here... More

It was a late Sunday in November and usually they say you need reservations for their Sunday lunch special (roast beef or lamb). I went with some friends and we all opted for the roast beef. It is basically sliced beef like a "steamship roast" at a cafeteria / restaurant in the US. It is not prime rib but good... More

Excellent spot to grab a pint. Unpretentious and laid back. My husband and I love to grab a pint here. Good crowd. No pressure to drink quickly or buy lots of pints. We sit in a corner and enjoy the authentic Irish surroundings. They offer sandwiches as well.

Popped in for a pre-prandial pint last night. Have been to this place several time but never wrote a review. Great authentic Irish pub, with a very unstuffy atmosphere. Even the Portuguese get into the spirit and chat to strangers here. Sunday lunch is highly recommended - but book well in advance. They have recently stocked a draft ale made... More

Called into this pub for a drink and a snack. Had a sandwich which was lovely, well presented and full of really fresh ingredients. My friend had a Guinness which I was assured was superb. I had one (or 2) Irish Coffees which were among the best I have ever had. The young lady who was serving was a delight.... More
