“Always nice to find an Irish Pub!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

Sure, it's not your "typical" Irish Pub... but if you can tell me what they are suppose to be like, then I'm sure we can find lots of examples that don't fit. Personally, after travelling around for a while, we find it nice just to find a place that is friendly, multicultural, has beer selections and they mostly understand English.
This place fits the bill and the cost and beers are decent. People are friendly and we met some college girls from the US that were studying Spanish. It was fun!

“Best burger in town! Try the Chipotle sauce and good beers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

If you are in San Jose, Costa Rica you need to go to this restaurant. It is an Irish pub so you know what to expect, but it is a great one!

The food is amazing but the best part are the beers. Younger crowd, so 20s to mid 30s is the norm.

“Never going back- EVER”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2012

So inside the bar my wallet and cellphone got robbed. Immediately I told the security guy which close to being absolutely useless said: What am I supposed to do about it? Asking the rest of the staff inside they completely disregarded what had just happened. Appearently it happens a lot. I would WATCH my stuff and be extra careful here since they have no security or intention to keep you or your stuff safe. Never going back. not because I got stolen because they cared zero about it.
