Join us in our turn of the century Irish pub, shipped piece by piece from Ireland and relocated in the heart of San Diego's Historic Gaslamp Quarter.As soon as you walk through the door you will be enveloped by the warm relaxing atmosphere of an old Irish country pub. Irish people the world over have earned a reputation for their friendliness and hospitality, so our crew will make you feel welcome and relaxed as soon as you meet them.Our menu includes all of your Irish favorites, like shepherd’s pie, corned beef and cabbage, fish and chips, Guinness beef stew, boxty dishes and full Irish breakfast served all day.The Field is happy to offer discounted food and drinks during happy hour, from opening until 7 PM Monday - Friday and from opening until 5 PM Saturday and Sunday.The air at The Field is filled with the buzz of people engaging in the art of conversation, savoring the homemade food, enjoying the traditional music and of course the clink of glasses as revelers sample one of our many imported draft beers. If you prefer something a little stronger, we boast one of San Diego's largest selection of single malt and blended whiskey. Irish, Scotch, Bourbon, and Rye are all available, with over 50 different labels in all.

Authentic Irish Food, Drink, & Atmosphere!

On a recent vacation to San Diego, we were able to stop at the Field Irish pub and restaurant in the gaslamp district of San Diego. It was very reminiscent of pubs we've visited in Dublin. The Guinness, food, atmosphere, and service were all outstanding! Unless you're watching whatever game is on... read more

Tried The Field on Trip Advisor recommendations; did not disappoint. It was he fish and chips I went for, and I'm glad I did. The batter was done right, allowing the fish to be the star, well done. Atmosphere in the bar is what you want in your Irish Pub. Would be a fun place to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Authentic Irish pub atmosphere with traditional Irish fare. The sampler plate is the way to go if you want to try several of their staples. Their curry fries are a MUST! Don't forget the Irish coffee!

Very cool Irish country decor, some will find it a bit dark. There were Irish dancers on the small stage when we were there -- every other Sunday night I think. The food and drink were typical and slightly pricey for what you get. Worth stopping in for a pint.
