Being Irish, it serves a great pint of Guinness, it carries a great selection of whiskies and it's... read more

The Bit of Irish is firstly a non smokinhg haven, amongst far too many bars in Austria that still welcome smoking inside their establishments. Although quite a small Irish bar, this actually helps create a friendly and convivial atmosphere as everyone seems to engage with each other. Meeting place for the Ski club of GB ensures plenty of good banter,... More

It was the biggest surprise for us after checking the place on TripAdvisor, there is no food served there it's just a bar so if you are going for a dinner there it's not the best idea . We came back after the dinner for a drink and it was worth it. There was some game played in the bar... More

I had my family stag do here the night before my wedding and we were served by an Irish barman who was also getting married at the Romantik hotel next door in January. Great beer, excellent service and atmosphere, a shame I couldn't tell him I was coming back the same week as his wedding as it was a surprise... More
