A great Irish Pub. Lovely decor with comfortable chairs this is a great place to go. Huge choice of food and drink, all served with a big smile. Barstaff are fantastic, so friendly and attentive, special mention for Agita, she was brilliant. Prices are competitive and they even have Happy Hours making the place unbelievable value. Thank you for a... More

Good beer selection and good jukebox! Lively bar on the weekend with a good atmosphere and friendly staff. Not overly Irish in nature but recommended nonetheless!

Good location in the Old Town, lots going on and lots to see. All the staff are helpful and pleasant (especially Olivija) and we would recommend to one and all. Nice pub/bar/restaurant. Good menu, vast array of drinks and a good price. The staff are helpful and attentive, happy hour starts at 5 pm. The pub has one of the... More

Good place to spend your evening in Riga. Have a drink and order some of the typical Irish food. Enjoy traditional Irish music or watch some sports on one of the big screens.

Didn't like the feel of this pub. Not very welcoming with little atmosphere. There are better Irish pubs in Riga

Typical pub food and not so great service. Food was decent, but not that great. Plenty of beer and TV's for sporing events. Lot's of similar places around here, so feel free to drop by others as well.

We popped in here at tea time fo a beer and a snack to keep us going until later. The atmosphere was sad - like an English estate pub - the beer was poor and the nachos were the worst I have ever tasted. Best to walk past and go to one of the many other bars in the area.

I love this pub. It is situated in the busiest part of Riga and is often buzzing. It is in need of some TLC, but it is quirky and it is easy to forgive its rather shabby décor. The food available is reasonably priced and varied in its origins. The music is eclectic, but generally more progressive. In general, this... More

2 floors, 2 terraces in summer time, live music, great meals, a lot of beers and good staff. Daily sports, bussiness lunch. A little expensive, but its understandable, because the pub is in the middle of Old Riga City. Had a great time, thank you.!

Paddy Whelan's - the first Irish pub in the Baltic's! Since 1995 we have been offering more than 50 beloved local and global beers and ciders, including the classic Irish Guinness, our own Užava, Brenguļi, Valmiermuiža and other beers, and many more. We also offer a wide range of foods, and because we never want to limit our taste buds, we have traditional Irish dishes, popular burgers and sandwiches, breakfast and lunch offers, popular Latvian foods for our local fans, and our pride and joy - homemade Indian foods at affordable prices! We are still one of the most popular venues in Rīga for live sports broadcasts, leisurely evenings, and a chance to meet local Latvians, local foreigners and guests of the city who have stopped by for a pint of beer, a glass of whiskey and a tasty meal. We are a member of the Latvian Association of Hotels and Restaurants, and we are delighted to help out in improving the hospitality environment in Rīga and throughout Latvia. No matter from where you come and no matter what you do on a daily basis, Paddy Whelan's will always welcome you. Come on in, have a seat, and enjoy a glass of beer. Maybe two.
