I visited Merida Summer of 2012. I ended up going to Hennessy's Irish Pub on two occasions. The first time was with my parents. We ended up have a few drinks at the bar. As the night progressed we ended up meeting the owner Sean Hennessy. He made us all feel welcome and we were thrilled to meet a fellow... More

Love their specials, and constant good service. They are always thinking of new ways to get people together, so they can have a good time, either related to sports, movies,shows,bennefits, and lots of great music.

I now live in Merida and Hennessy's is one of my favorite places to go. GREAt esperience. The waiters go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I especially love their ol' fashion Fish and Chips and the big Cheeseburger. They have special occasions such as Academy Awards Night and live bands on the patio on weekends. The... More

During our year living in Merida, Hennessy's was a weekly indulgence. The staff always went above and beyond, to the point of having our orders memorized and drinks ready shortly after arriving. The live music on the weekends was always amazing and should not be missed. You will also likely find the owner's hanging out with the regulars on the... More

We have been to Hennessey´s several times during our recent trips to Merida, as it is a very popular social spot for expats who live in Merida. The bar is attractive with a very good selection of drinks and beer. The menu is upscale pub food and all of it is good. And there are often special events in the... More

Was looking for a good place to watch the World Cup and was suggested to come to Hennessy's. Didn't eat but this is place to get a proper Irish breakfast and pub meal. Owner makes you feel welcome. Came back two more times during my stay.

We were in the mood for some pub grub, and thought we would try out this pub. We were expecting an Irish pub, but with some quirky twist of the sort one expects in the Yucitan. Instead, what we found was a boring, cookie-cutter pub decor that could be in a strip mall in Canada. We ordered standards: fish and... More

We went to Hennesseys bar due to the St Patricks day celebrations over the weekend. Didn't eat there but felt very welcome sitting at the bar enjoying a pint of Guinness. Live music outside was really good too and overall it was THE place to be for Irish shenanigans!!

Hennessy is a great find in the historic former capital of the Mayans. Merida is a city that will fascinate the traveler who likes history rich culture and something off the beaten path of tourist destinations. Merida is a city in revival not to be missed. Hennessy is as authentic as one can get for Irish pubs with great food... More
