Live music. Fantastic. But that's the best of this place. Too noisy. Ordered a Caesar salad - not hard...I thought. Only change I requested? Double anchovies. What came out? Lettuce, croutons, boiled egg, a few bits of bacon. NO anchovies. NO dressing. Very ordinary.

I'm a bit of a fan of Hoolie's, they seem to be one of the only places in the Bay that are able to put on loud bands without being the RSL or Boat Club. Drinking pints of Guinness at a wood finished bar is always a welcome experience for me and I will continue to keep coming back. Staff... More

We were able to walk to this bar from our hotel and had a great time. We sat outside to start with and had a few drinks and then went inside for dinner. Varied and reasonable menu and our meals cooked perfectly. Very busy place but food arrived quickly. Lively atmosphere but very friendly and welcoming.

We had dinner at Hoolihans was were pleasantly surprised. The meals were excellent and pricing was reasonable. It was extremely busy and noisy so I would recommend booking early to gain an outside table which would allow for easier conversation. Overall this was great value for money and had a great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Our group of 4 adults dropped into Hoolihans for a late afternoon drink which turned into dinner as well. It's nice to find somewhere that has character and a distinct ambience. That's what you get at Hoolihans. Irish theming with a big bar, timber tables, sport on the televisions, friendly staff and a fun casual setting for drinking and dining.... More

We stayed nearby at the Riveria Resort and this was so convenient for us to walk to. Went two nights in succession and were not disappointed either night. The menu selection is quite extensive, the staff are excellent and the food did not take long to arrive. Both my husband and I had different meals each night and enjoyed them... More

Due to a power outage at home, we set off in search of a good quality but not too expensive meal. Hoolihans definitely fitted the bill and fulfilled all of our expectations. All were very happy with their excellent food served quickly and efficiently together with a couple of pints of Kilkenny (for Mum and Dad) to wash it down... More

Went there for lunch yesterday, one of many return visits, Staff are always friendly, food is excellent and they have Guinness and Kilkenny on tap. What more could you ask for?
