visited on a busy Friday evening. The bar was packed but the bar service was excellent and the Guinness was really good. We were lucky to get a seat in the middle bar, there was a really lovely atmosphere and we really enjoyed our evening.

Had a ball here with our extended family ranging in age from 23-80! Found a snug and enjoyed the spectacle all around us! Loved the history, music, art, and vibe of the place!

This bar was so cool! I thought it was a middle eastern bar from the colors outside, but it was in fact this really old multi-room Irish bar. It was such a cool atmosphere. This awesome Irish band played just sitting around a small corner...More

I love heading to Neachtains - great staff and great ambience. You can always strike up a conversation with some of the random characters bobbing around the city. They will kick you out if you're in a big group and being a little too boisterous...More

Tigh Neachtains, what's not to love? It's like going back in time while still being in a modern area. It's the perfect little country style pub that's situated in the city. A great spot for anyone to go to especially on a warm sunny day,...More
