When The Dump ( Waferer Inn) didn't have a lobby restroom, the woman at the desk directed me to Brophy's. When I entered there were just men at the bar. Atmosphere was a little dark, one restroom, man exiting. Seems like a guy's place, maybe for golfers. Probably good if you're a guy, but not what ladies would appreciate. Had... More

Firstly this bar isn't easy to find, so be patient, but once you're here its worth the street searching. Its Irish themed, smart, clean and friendly. The bar staff ladies we met were Amy & Mary, great girls. They even offer us different places to eat when we asked, not many bars do that. Music was played, good choice to,... More

It's not easy to find this place if your not from the area but if you make the effort you will be rewarded, it's not fancy, it's not stuffy, and it's not flashy, but it is great, especially on a weekend morning when you need a good hangover correction. The menu is reasonable and the food is great, but the... More

Erin has a great location...Close to the main street, but far enough off that it's more locals than tourist. 6 screens broadcasting sports, great breakfast and great drinks

Evidently, this is a gathering place for golfers and we tried it because it was next door to where we were staying. Very interesting cocktails on the menu and the food we saw delivered to other tables looked terrific. Everyone seems to know each other and it has a very friendly atmosphere. Golf was showing on the giant TVs.

Brophy's is just opposite where we stay and we have always looked forward to spending our first night in town in there where we can get a stiff drink and good burger after the 12 hour air and road trip it takes us to get there from London. The staff are a delight, we went in there for lunch on... More

We recently stayed at the Carmel Wayfarer's Inn and just didn't want to spend a fortune on dinner nor did we want to get all gussied up!! So, we discovered Brophy's Tavern. Sports Bar atmosphere but cozy and food was delicious. The food was delicious without the price. There is a happy hour as well. This eater/bar is frequented by... More

The food and drinks were affordable and excellent in taste and presentation. Service (3 waitresses chatting about personal stuff behind the bar) was a little slow (affected the tip to our server) but overall it was a fine experience.
