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. Hennessy's also offers a great selection of beer, wine, cocktails and Irish Whiskey. And Guinness, of course.

Awesome pub!

Not exactly the type of restaurant you'd expect to find in Merida, but I'm sure glad we did. Good food and great music.

On a recent Monday evening my husband and I joined a group of people watching a movie in Hennessey’s Polo Lounge as we’d been doing for more than 6 months. As usual, we ordered food and drinks throughout the evening. Hennessey’s is a popular meeting spot for ex-pats and also a sprinkling of Mexican nationals who come to socialize and... More

I'd like to mention that I haven't eaten at Hennessey's, but I have been there for drinks numerous times. There are some things I like about Hennessey's. - There's frequently live music and it's usually good - It's open really late - The staff generally have a good level of English. Now, these are kind of outweighed by these things:... More

This is a pretty good spot to go for a few beers and to listen to some live music on Friday evenings. Drafts are affordable, and there are lots of choices. The prices for food are a bit above average for the destination, but about the same as some of the other well known "international" eateries such as TGIF, Chillis,... More

Stopped in for a pint and met owner, Sean Hennessey, which was a pleasure! The furnishings are great and atmosphere very good as well. Nice addition of roof top at night!

A little taste of home which is nice from time to time. All day breakfast, bangers and mash, and lots of Guinness! Nightly bands as well.

After a week in Merida we thought a little taste of home would hit the spot. After all, what could go wrong with burgers and fish n chips. Everything! Rubbery fish and rather tasteless burgers. Also if ordering a burger insist on well done.

Good pub food, good wait staff very accommodating, good value, cheap evening out with a meal and a few draft beers for 200 pesos. Take a table in the courtyard if one is available, and if not climb the stairs to the upper floor garden overlooking the courtyard and musicians. The gal that sings there on Friday nights (sorry I...
