Handy on the shorefront

Just a short walk from the caravan park. Friendly bar with seats outside. Didn't eat there, so can't comment on that, but would go again.

Easy dinning at Hoolihans. We enjoyed wine and steaks. We took a chance and we were pleased with our meal. Staff was friendly.

This is a great pub! Easy to locate and an easy walk from a lot of accommodation in Hervey Bay. Pleasant walk either before the meal or afterwards on the Esplanade or along the beach which is right at the door. Outdoor dining, but when we were there it was a little overcast, so indoors it was. Booths very large... More

This place is the best! The best service, The best food, The best drinks And the best prices. This place has one hell of an atmosphere about it that you not only won't want to leave.. But you'll call another 10 friends to come join you.

An enjoyable pub meal with value for money dishes and good service. Liked the big booths. Easy walking distance from Torquay accommodation.

Food was fabulous. Beef cheeks were cooked beautifully. The Guiness was nice and refreshing. Beach is right across the road. Great Irish pub.

It does have a more traditional pub feel inside Hoolihan's, with an Irish pub slant. Drinks and food all good, as was the service. They do special deals if one of your party has a birthday. It has outside space on the Esplanade, over the road from the beach, but you are on the road-side. All in all, if you... More
