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.

Few spots claim to be Irish cause of the name, well you cant be a true Irish bar without real bartenders from Ireland. Its an unwritten rule in NY, just saying!!!!! Nice live Irish music on Thursday night, lots of Guinness and Tullamore Dew are flowing. You may even run into people visiting from Ireland there too :)

I would have given it ten stars if I could-- DO NOT MISS THIS little jewel in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter! Shipped over brick-by-brick from Ireland, this cozy pub will have your heart singing in no time! The food is awesome too, my egg & rashers were to die for!!

We couldn't find anywhere that appealed and came across The Field on walking around..quick check on Trip Advisor and well the rest is history. We ate ther the 2 nights we were there and enjoyed the food the wine and the company. The Shepherds Pie was excellent. We certainly would go back and certainly recommend.
