Try it. You will love it.

What a fun place! The food and the service were very good. The portions were super large. Great music on most days.

Stopped in for dinner, it was pretty slow, waitresses weren't very attentive. The food was okay. I definitely would not go back again.

I stopped in for a drink because I am hoping to settle near a town where someone pours a good Guinness, unfortunately they missed it here. The bartender poured off much of the head and worse the beer was ice cold. If it had been a pilsner I would have applauded their efforts but any good Irishman will tell you... More

The atmosphere certainly met our expectations - a real pub ambience and Irish music. Good variety of cold beer. Since it's Irish, I ordered the Shepard Pie my wife the fish and chips. Both were poor. This was NOT Shepard Pie. It was mashed potatoes with an over abundance of chopped carrots in it and the whole think was disgusting.... More

We visited this Irish Embassy again, taking along two of our friends. My wife and I had the Shepherd's pie while our friends had the chicken wrap. We found the food excellent. Everything tasted fresh and was flavorful. My friend's daughter insisted a few days later that they go back (we were in Pagosa). Service was excellent. We were waited... More

We attended this restaurant during our passage in Durango. It's décor is very traditional your Irish Pub with the heavy wood. Absolutely great fare, lots of favorites. Great friendly service. In Durango, this is a must for dinner, and perhaps a few pints. Rather inexpensive.

We had high expectations for this restaurant due to it having some great reviews but our experience was very disappointing. After being seated our waitress was quick to bring us water and a menu. However it then took forever for her to come back, we waited at least 15 minutes. OK, we thought, she is here so we can handle... More

Had the chicken strips. I really liked them. It was a really nice place with live Irish music playing. Wait staff did a great job and the prices were good.

What a great Restaurant and Pub in Durango. Had their special of the evening Chicken Pot Pie. The meal was very hot when it was served and had to wait a little while before I could eat it, but that is good. Restaurant has excellent atmosphere for couples and groups. Had no problem getting seating for our group. Service was... More

We tried the sliders. You get 4 per order. We had an order of the pulled pork and an order of the pot roast. Pulled pork was sweet and delicious, and the pot roast was tender and tasty. Restroom was nicest in any restaurant in Durango.
