I love this bar. So much fun during the pub crawl. Close to the aquarium and shopping. Good drinks and good music. Always fun when people are here for the crawl. Nice Irish bar.

As expected, super busy during evening hours and quiet during day. Has a good rush for happy hour on weekdays. Good ambiance, great servers. Sports bar style but still maintains a good irish pub feel.

We absolutely LOVED this place. We just happened see it while wandering around. We needed a break and decided to go in. It was so quiet and peaceful, you could tell it was a "locals" spot. A lot of other larger restaurants were at capacity...More

Poorly lit, dirty floors, open windows and bad smells - that about sums this place up. Go across the street to the Black Rose for the polar opposite of this. See my review on this. Stayed for about 10 minutes and was not once asked...More

Had a late lunch here-cold beer, friendly service, good food-burgers, chicken tenders, and chili. $43 for four including two beers-not bad for Boston. Nice atmosphere as well.

We stopped in for a few drinks and to listen to some music. The band was authentically Irish, which was nice, and the bartender provided great service. Worth a try.

We visited here recently with two families. This worked out perfectly for us all. I guess we never considered an Irish Pub a good family place but plenty of advantages here. The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect in an Irish Pub in Boston....More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
