If it is just too hot outside on the cobblestones streets, pop into Abbey Theatre for a 5 euro draught pint in the cool a/c. It is refreshing and fun with big screen TVs and tasty bar food. It's a fairly big place with meandering rooms that can accommodate a group. The staff is friendly and service prompt. Have a... More

Nice English Pub near Piazza Navona. Friendly staff and good food. We had the mixed cheese plate and chicken wings, both of which were generous and very tasty.

Went in to this lovely little pub to get away from the heat, excellent atmosphere, bar staff were friendly and always very helpful for directions, Rick was chatty and full of banter and was very helpful for directions to the Vatican, came back later for food and they had this great deal on tacos, nice place to drink in

My husband had a beer and I had one of their specialty cocktails. It was a nice break from the Italian red wines we had been having at almost all the restaurants! Also nice to hear... More

A warm and friendly atmosphere with a large variety of food and drink to choose from. Lovely and cosy decor which makes you want to stay longer. The best irish coffee and baby guinesses.

Loved the break from the Italian cuisine for a bit and Irish stew, cold Harp and Guinness and a ballgame was a nice change. David at the bar remembered my name when we returned and made us feel very welcomed in a busy pub. Great food and atmosphere
