Description: Hennessy's Irish Pub: Bringing an authentic taste of Ireland to Merida, Mexico. Opened in late 2010 by Irish expats Sean Hennessy and Colm Cooney, Hennessy's has quickly become one of Merida's favorite watering holes and resturants, popular with locals, expats and travelers alike. Don't miss Hennessy's stunning front bar, cozy Polo Bar in back, open-air patio and billiard room. In addition to its stellar Fish-n-Chips, don't-miss menu items include stunning curries, fresh salads and delicious steaks. Hennessy's also offers a great selection of beer, wine, cocktails and Irish Whiskey. And Guinness, of course.

“Average at best!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

As other reviews mention the food is lacking in flavor and quality for the price. The service is sub par. They are helpful but slow and not very well informed about their own menu. The manager seems more worried in tending friends than the restaurant. For the price there are much better options very close by

“Only pub to go to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Stayed at the Hyatt, been here a couple of times. Owners are great, good service, and cold beers. Nice selection in comparison to other bars in Merida. Live music sometimes. Never tried the food, but menu looks appetizing.

“Nice place to eat.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I have visited twice and the food has been on the okay side. The prices are high, but it is nice place with a nice atmosphere. The beer selection is good and they always arrive at the table cold. It's one of those places that you should visit when in the neighbourhood.

“I tried it !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

So many expats have raved over the Irish Pub so I finally had the opportunity to visit whilst in Merida a couple of days.
The waitress was really nice. The place was quiet due to the low season and I think being a Monday and raining.The onion soup was very good but a little disappointed in the Curry I had ordered,it seemed to lack in flavours that curries are so well noted for and for what I had been accustomed to eating in England.Maybe I can give them the benefit of the doubt by not being able to acquire the spices here in Mexico (if one can, please let me know) I have to agree with another review.... the pricing was rather high !

“Maybe just for beer”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went once, and only once. I didn't drink any beer, though there is a good selection. I had a burger which looked and tasted like it was an out-of-the-box frozen burger (it was squarish). It wasn't cooked to my request and was edible, but not something I would go back for. The thing that really got me was the price. Wow! Expensive! We would have left and gone elsewhere, but the other places we tried along the way were all closed.

Service was good, cleanliness was acceptable.
