they say Guinness doesn't travel! think again!

As a seasoned Guinness drinker, having been to St James's gate, and taken the tasters tour, i can categorically tell you, that it does travel and you can get a magnificent pint in Zell am See in A Bit of Irish, great atmosphere, great people, always a warm welcome Thanks Dec and Julie (It... read more

We first came hear after reading the reviews online & it is great. Our original visit was to partake in the quiz - which we won! It has a lovely atmosphere and if you want to sample what a typical Irish pub is like you should drop in here. The landlord Declan will welcome you warmly. There is Guinness &... More

In a town where most bars tend to have people smoking, this palce was entirely smoke-free, a definite positive in my view. The owner, Declan, is extremely welcoming and chatty, and yiou are guaranteed a good time here.

This is a superb Irish pub, not the sort of cheap imitation you find outside Ireland. The Guinness is superb as is the atmosphere and the owner is very friendly. Ideal to watch rugby/football while on holiday in Zell.

I have frequented A bit of Irish on all my skiing trips and last years summer visit to Zell am See over the past five years. It has always proven to be the friendliest and best run bar in the area. Being Irish, it serves a great pint of Guinness, it carries a great selection of whiskies and it's toasted... 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

This pub is a little oasis. Fully stocked bar. It was lovely to have an Irish whiskey. Home from home. Watched the Liverpool v Chelsea match there and good ambiance. Staff in bar were very friendly and eager to please. They just do toasted sandwiches. The also do fun quiz nights. It's definetely worth a stopover. Even just for a... More
