Description: Hennessy's Irish Pub: Bringing an authentic taste of Ireland to Merida, Mexico. Opened in late 2010 by Irish expats Sean Hennessy and Colm Cooney, Hennessy's has quickly become one of Merida's favorite watering holes and resturants, popular with locals, expats and travelers alike. Don't miss Hennessy's stunning front bar, cozy Polo Bar in back, open-air patio and billiard room. In addition to its stellar Fish-n-Chips, don't-miss menu items include stunning curries, fresh salads and delicious steaks.

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

I have been to Hennessy's before and I have always enjoyed the experience. I stopped by today for a late lunch. I found they had updated their menu choices and were serving Lamb Pizza. It sounded good. It tasted great. The crust was toasty, thin, and crunchy. I loved the chunks of cheese in the lightly spiced tomato base and... More

This is a great place! Best food I've had in Merida and compares favorably to similarly-priced restaurants in other countries.
