The food is outstanding. Everything I had on the menu was great. The short ribs is to die for. The taste of Red Tolley beer will take you into another zone.

We visited the Blarney Stone Irish Pub on Sunday morning, September 21 for breakfast. We had patronized the establishment on the previous evening and were pleased, so we came back. SIX people at our table, and we were pretty much alone in the place around 8am, so we got some devoted attention. Very good breakfast. Good time, good value and... More

My friend and I wandered in last Saturday night, after finding standing room only at our first choice. It ended up being a happy coincidence, as we had a great time. They weren't really croweded, but Steve, the guitar player made the night. A fun place with a friendly crowd and an entertaining guitar player.

The older, smallish, Hispanic Bartender asked me for my ID. I showed it to her but, she asked me to take it out of my wallet. I said I... More

Not much of an Irish feel here. Loud live rock and sometimes blues bands. There are lots of other bars and pubs nearby that are more fun.

This was my second trip to San Diego and my second trip to the Blarney Stone. This irish pub located in the Gas Lamp Quarter is everything you would expect in an irish pub. The walls are adorned with irish garb as well as newspaper clippings of notable events over the years. The drinks, the waitress, and the entertainment (Steve... More
