Well, the first few times (several years ago) that i came to the Irish Pub I did not like it. Maybe it was the service just turned me off or just a bad day. since my first reviews, I have returned with friends and I have a totally different view. It is a very good place to eat! I love... read more

This is a great place. The food is excellent and it is second only to the friendly atmosphere and welcoming hosts. Had great craic here meeting with locals and having a laugh. The place feels like it is part of the heart of the community.

My wife is from Ireland, so we wanted to check this out to watch the Women's World Cup. It did not disappoint! The atmosphere was great and so was the food. The Irish owner has done a great job of creating an authentic Irish pub in the heart of Merida. A special thanks to the waiters: as soon as we... More

The place overall was "blah". The food is not that good, poor quality and expensive for what they serve. Won't go there again.

Who would ever guess you would find an Authentic Irish Pub small dab on the Pass! Shepherds Pie, bangers, and Guinness all while listening to 80s rock. Great food burgers (big) Alfredo truffle oil dish was super. Staff works hard. It will take an hour to eat here. But you will like it. The cost was higher than most other... More

Stopped to try this location and found it to be top notch in service as well as menu selection. Only disappointment was there was no Guiness on tap in order to have a proper pint. Only available in cans which I had assumed would be unlawful. The Owner/Manager Sean informed me that it is not available in the barrel in... More

If you visit Merida make this one of your stops for a meal. Great atmosphere, menu and staff, in a great location with excellent food and music at night. Say hello to the owner Sean, very nice person who knows his business and will take the time to insure you are satisfied. Can't say enough good things about the Pub

Hennessey’s is not the place to go when looking for traditional Mexico/Yucatan cuisine. It’s where you go to get away from the touristy part of el Centro and mingle among the extended local expat community. It’s a delightful walk on an amazing boulevard from both the busy zocolo and the more northern hotel district. The menu is a mix of... More
