Sharing a last name with this bar, I was very excited to go. But it surpassed my expectations. I had to wait a little bit for a table, but the food and Guinness was worth it!

Brilliant pub, always a good crowd and vibe in the place, proper auld pub with a nice pint of Guinness. Nice untamed decor and furniture adds to its character. Good location, very central. Well worth checking out.

Ducking in to dodge some raindrops, we were just looking for a dry place to wet our whistles, and expected a typical tourist spot. But Brogan's was lively and the pints were top-notch.
