Nice local bar.

After a long day working the NCSS Conference at the Conference Center, we walked out and were directly across the street from that pub. It looked pretty cool and trendy so we decided to go in for a beer. The place was pretty crowded but in a good way with a great atmosphere. I ordered a Boston... read more

We just happened to come across this one evening while strolling down the street and my husband spotted that they had a chicken hotpot on their menu so we returned for dinner the following night. Our waitress who we will call "Aoife" because she was the head off a friend of ours was really nice and bubbly and it wasn't... More

stopped here as I am an Arsenal fan, I found that the Boston Gooners met here on match days. We had a few beers and some great food. The Chowder was very tasty and we had steak tip sliders which were fantastic. Great location close to the city centre good atmosphere and nice food

My husband and I stopped here for a drink on our way back to our hotel after a visit to Fanueil Hall and Quincy market. He had a beer and I had an amazing Dirty Martini. The only complaint I have is no one has Michelob Light it seems.

Went to catch an Arsenal football match. Great time. It was pretty crowded but the service was very good. Early match so I went with the full Irish Breakfast and a vodka and orange juice. Hey it was 5:00 o'clock somewhere.

Very cool Irish Pub with a huge bar in the middle. Beautiful woodwork, and tons of TV's showing any games that are on. Food was pretty good for a small bite.

Went to Lir for some beer and apps to watch the Pats game. The nachos were small and the salsa weak. Also the calamari we ordered was maybe the worst ever - it tasted fishy and the rings were tiny with spinach randomly tossed on top. Service was fine.
