Where is the singsong, where is the atmosphere, where is the good beer? A pub that calls itself Irish has a reputation to maintain. And what is an Irish viking, by the way?

As the title says i had the best stake ever, was very tasty and the service was excellent. Followed by some live music. I really enjoyed it. Upstairs they have a bar with comfy couches and a terrace which overlooks a fountain. Very relaxing sitting with a nice cold beer.
