A chilly evening sent me looking for comfort food to fight off the cold. Hoolihans presented as the quintessential Irish atmosphere with plenty of mid week patrons dining out. My choice of pub fare was the Guinness pie served with salad and fries for $10.00....More

Paid $24 for 3 small pieces of fish and chips was not great value for the quality and they felt that ketchup should be an extra dollar There thinking they are the ritz Carlton I guess. Can do a lot better in this nice town...More

Food was good and staff were friendly and service was good. Live entertainment was good but a bit too loud as you couldn't talk while the person was playing.

We had the Irish stew which was a reasonable meal for the price. Handy spot on the Esplanade, opposite the beach.

Best burger and free WiFi! Very friendly stuff. During the stay of 5 days we went there three times because it was so good. My recommendation: ChickenBurger

Had lunch at Hoolihans last week. Found the staff overworked & unhelpful & the food very mediocre & very much overpriced. Considering the value and quality of the food I would not risk taking visitors there & doubt we'll return any time soon.
