Return visit since February of last year, went to Henessey's more on this trip. Sean Hennessey is very welcoming to his patrons. The staff is very professional and extremely friendly. The food I've seen no change to the quality and serving size, the food is excellent. If you make only one visit, you need to give them a try....you will... More

Had to make a stop at Hennessy's for a few drinks during our stay in Merida. It has a cool atmosphere, service was good (we sat at the bar) and the place had a cool vibe. Most of the patrons were gringos (incl. expatriates ... probably), and it was a fun diversion. Lots of screens to see games and a... More

We went for dinner. The pub is actuallly bigger than I expected. Service and the food were good and the prices were reasonable (you can see their menu online). We had a couple of beers and one of us had the fish and chips and the other a burger. It was raining during the time we were there but they... More

Not a bad place for a night's entertainment and a meal to satisfy most palates. Live music and a wide selection of drinks to imbibe give this site a bit of a unique atmosphere. Sit at the bar or relax upstairs and look down at the band - all the while enjoying your night out on Paseo Montejo.

This was a very good Irish Pub. I had the shepherds pie and it was quite good. The pub is exactly what you would expect in types of pub food and beers. You kind of forget that you're in mexico. The atmosphere is nice and there is a fairly decent roof top patio. If you're looking for an old faithful... More

Good beer selection. The service is okay, nothing to complain about, but not exceptional. I had a burger and it was somewhat undercooked, but I'm sure that is how most of the patrons like it. I wouldn't go out of my way to return.
