We went to Hennessy for lunch in an afternoon where everything else was closed on Paseo del Montejo. My partner was very happy, as he is Irish and loves trying out Irish bars in each city we visit. I rate it with only 3 * because the food was terrible, terrible. We both had Italian and was the far the... More

Hennessy's has a very cheery and comfortable atmosphere. I felt very "at home" and the food exceeded my expectations. It has a full bar and a few specialty beers that enjoyed. Service was very friendly and responsive. A great expat hangout.

Excellent menu and superior food and service. Owners are almost always on hand --really sharp guys from Ireland; the Irish Pub flavor of Hennessy's is living reality of the two Irish blokes named Sean and Colm. Beyond the excellent food and atmosphere, they offer a good venue of culture in music, special events and community open mic nights, etc..They have... More

Hennessy's- which is located in Paseo de Montejo -saved our lives during the HOTTEST week ever in Merida. For us anyway. It was our first visit there and the hot weather had just started. We didn't have a rental car when we first arrived and were walking everywhere. Sometimes we couldn't find a taxi or the taxi was taken. So... More

Lovely food, great atmosphere from 21.00hrs on, shame Guinness not on draught though! Staff were very attentive and the beetroot salad and Irish stew, along with the decent wine made for a memorable evening.

This is an oasis of great beers, friendly staff, great food and enough of a local hang out to feel like a genuine pub. The design is what Irish pubs want to be, inside very comfortable chairs, a great bar full of all the top shelf selections and a beer menu like no other In Merida. The front patio is... More

Hennessy's Irish Pub was "just OK". The food and drinks were typically overpriced for the Paseo de Montejo area but the pub was comfortable and a good escape from your Merida immersion.

Hennessy's Irish Pub: Bringing an authentic taste of Ireland to Merida, Mexico.

Opened in late 2010 by Irish expats Sean Hennessy and Colm Cooney, Hennessy's has quickly become one of Merida's favorite watering holes and resturants, popular with locals, expats and travelers alike. Don't miss Hennessy's stunning front bar, cozy Polo Bar in back, open-air patio and billiard room.

In addition to its stellar Fish-n-Chips, don't-miss menu items include stunning curries, fresh salads and delicious steaks. Hennessy's also offers a great selection of beer, wine, cocktails and Irish Whiskey. And Guinness, of course.
