“Aww...a wee bit of the Emerald Isle tis' Ireland's Own!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Always a thrill, the excellent musical groups & their food offerrings at Ireland's Own. I would add their beer selections are also "top drawer" and the Irish Coffee is great!

“Poor food ok service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Crab dip was void of any crab or crab taste. All cream cheese and spices. Shepard's pie had so few veggies that they could fit in a thimble. Filling tasted canned. Home made crab cake was overpowered by spices. Too bad because it did have a fair amount of crab. Total waste of my hard earned money.

“Great for Late Night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Ireland's Own is a landmark pub in Alexandria. The owner sponsors the annual St, Patrick's Day Parade. it is a great place to stop in late on a Friday or Saturday night. Hot food served and live music played ... granted the music is usually melancholic and/or depressing Irish ballads.

“cute little place with live entertainment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

the drinks and food are certainly on par for what you expect in a pub. the service is quick and courteous. the live entertainment is good. (live performances are not on all the time from what I can gather, you should really check their schedule beforehand) .

what takes this place down to average, however, is the lack of a crowd - in my opinion, the buzz of a pub is a key part of what makes going to one fun. the place was only about 15% full on a wednesday night, even with the live entertainment. i am sure that the pub owner is just as disappointed about this as i am. a dead pub is just no fun.
