Food was very good as well as friendly service. The owners were especially friendly and welcoming. Will recommend and return in the future.

We tried both the cottage pie and the corded beef and cabbage dinners and were impressed with both. In fact the corned beef was the best I have ever had. Add to that a cold Harp’s on tap and you will be quite satisfied. We...More

The food is good, the beer is cold, they have Jameson's, but I'm not a fan of their boxty. Good place to go with friends for drinks and appetizers.

Loved the lamb burger (not many places serve lamb.) Not a place to go for a quiet drink or bite to eat but perfect if you are looking for the atmosphere and comradery of an authentic Irish pub.

Great little family run Irish Pub. On a given night you'll find folks sitting around a table singing Irish songs while strumming guitars. The decor is very fun, clean, with a great atmosphere. Katy was our barkeep and she did a great job. The food...More

Love it here-great Irish music, food, drinks, and fun. My favorite drink is the milk and honey. The service is excellent, and they look like they are actually having fun while waiting on everyone.

I have seen children in Morrison's on several occasions and it has been at lunch time or early dinner time. But I would suggest calling the pub to ask about any kind of kids menu because I am not familiar with it.

Yes. Please call the pub when they will have it. I live to far away to know from day to day their schedule.

Think of Morrison's as your Ireland away from Ireland. From the moment Lisa, Mary, and Katey arrived in Ireland, they knew what they were experiencing in the small towns and pubs was too wonderful not to share. Morrison's Irish Pub is a family-run labor of love down to the beautiful hand-built bar and tables housed in its magnificent brick building that dates back to 1865. It is not unusual to see Morrison's 'pub family' of customers, musicians, and employees form bonds or burst into song--so, it's safe to say it's bloody good fun around here. Slainte!
