Beautiful inside

Good food, good beer. Had the Shepard's pie. It was Comfort food, and an Irish specialty. Nachos are huge and appealing!

My son ordered the meatloaf which tasted okay but looked like the food had been slopped onto the plate. I ordered the potato soup which tasted liked raw flour. I honestly can't remember my entree! My husband enjoyed the fish and chips.

So, really? Could you imagine an Irish bar the best kept secret in Colorado? Yes you can. This bar has some of the best food available in town, and that's saying a lot in a town that has so many good restaurants. If you're lucky enough to eat on Sunday, have the corned beef and cabbage... You won't regret it.... More

I ate here with my son on our last night in town. We each had a pint and a traditional meal. He had the shepherds pie and I had the fish and chips. The F&C were prepare two ways, beer battered and panko crusted. Both are delicious pub food.

If you want great food, this is a good choice. If you want good service....go somewhere else. Hostess seemed pissed and stayed playing on her phone, we saw our waitress once for water and the chance of getting a smile from the staff...probably not gonna happen. We had hoped for a better Durango Colorado experience.

True Irish Pub. Try the Fish & Chips or the Bangers & Mash. Get there early as they tend to be packed. And for good reason.

I love a good Irish pub and try the Shepherd's Pie at every pub I visit. While the ambiance of the restaurant was nice, the food was not as good. My pie had more mashed potatoes than anything else. There was little protein in the filling and I had several whole rosemary leaves in mine. I hope to go back... More

Order a pint of Smithicks and anything on the menu! It's all great. Most entrees are huge, so you can split an order or sometimes just order a half order. I haven't had a bad meal there yet: fish & chips, pot roast, shepards pie, all delicious. On Sundays they have live Irish music, too.

I ate at The Irish Pub with a friend who raved about it. It was not memorable but not bad. The food was average. Service was excellent, friendly, quick. We were there for lunch. I am told that at night there is live entertainment which people love. Perhaps that is the main attraction.
