Nice Irish pub atmosphere. We ordered our drinks and meal at the bar in the back. There was only one young lady doing double duty on bar and serving our dinners. Our table ordered the Guiness beef and the fillet of kangaroo. Never having had Kangaroo before we were a bit apprehensive about our first bite, but is was absolutely... More

What a great Bar, service was amazing and staff were very friendly and welcoming which was very nice to see. We got our monies worth with our "Happy Hour" and the food was out of this world. High Recommend

Poor service, seating is uncomfortable and place is dark and uninviting. When band is playing it is too loud for the venue.

great pub but staff more interested in their mobile phones than serving people it seemed as though you were intruding in their private life than paying their wages. good pint of guiness though.

We had one of their lunch specials (until 5 PM). We enjoyed our steak, fries, salad and wine (or beer) for $23. The steak was decent for the price. We sat up by the bar and enjoyed the mix of music - from the 60s (American) to Irish blend.

Early lunch after Sunday church, we called into this establishment, we were greeted by a friendly waitress named "India" who made our lunch a delight with prompt service with a smile.

Lunch date with my wife on a midweek day off. We arrived just prior to midday beating the lunch rush. Good value lunch specials and as always, the steaks are great. Service as always, efficient and friendly. Wined and dined here several times over the years, and as always, enjoyed immensely. Highly recommended for a good meal and a beer.

Nice pub, nothing exceptional. Bar staff are hit and miss. Closes relatively early. But, good for a quick pint before dinner in the city.

We were looking for a venue for lunch and decided on Gilhooley's for the location and beer selection. We had sirloin and kangaroo for mains. Both dishes were tender and the kangaroo was particularly well cooked.
