This pub has a great position looking onto the beach with great outside seating. There is a bit of a downside in that the road can be busy, so a bit noisy. It is a great place to relax after a walk along the beach.

Bar and wait staff friendly and efficient,if a little keen to,pounce on empty glasses. Menu offers a decent slection including some "Irish" specials. Beef and Guinness pie was well reported... More

We went to Hoolihans for lunch and were the only ones there, no problems - nothing like picking where you want to sit. As we went up to order our meals the staff member was abrupt and made us feel unwelcome as she was too busy watching the bull riding on television. While serving us she was disgruntled about someone... More

this by far, has to be the best restaurant at hervey bay.. the restaurant itself, is based on an irish theme, but the menu and the quality of the meals, has to be the best around.. the staff are so friendly, and thoughtful as well..

A group of us came here for lunch and there was not one speck left on anyone's plates. A great meal was had by all. Can't wait to go back.

Love this place, great atmosphere, food and location. My group of friends always have a meal here when we get together every three months. Generous portions and good flavours. Sometimes gets a bit noisy if there is a big group celebrating a special occasion, but generally it is good even then as everyone seems to be having a great time.

A night out with family and friends. Meal prices are very reasonable, children's meals $10. Very affordable. Not many Gluten Free options to choose from. Friday's and Saturday's are very loud inside as a band plays. But, if you go during the week, it is nice and quiet and you can enjoy your meal without the loud band playing. We... More
