I was surprised to see that The Pale is listed in Tripadvisor as a restaurant, as it is not a restaurant, but a very popular Irish Pub. It does not serve food. Over the years we have been in the Pale several times, and as...More

Pub which you have to like. Lot of different beers, kind and nice people around. Placed in small square near to cathedral and Rue Nationale. Just try it.

Had a few lovely pints in the evening with the family. Good craic. Not 'mad' Irish but good none the less. Pint was good. Good selection of Irish Whiskey. Very warm indoors but couldn't get a seat outside!

I saw this when passing earlier...now I had a chance to sup. Decent choice of beers - Punk from Scotland, Guinness, Kilkenny. Outside it was slammed, but inside cool and ferry few people. Prices were fairly...6 euros for a few 500ml Guinness.

Great atmosphere in a lively area. Really enjoyed the city and a few pints in the Pale. Really nice to visit pubs that welcome football fans unlike back home.

Tours wouldn't be the same without the Pale. Good beers and saucisson. Great staff, very friendly bosses. Always something going on: concerts, plays and so on. Often crowded but, well, there is a reason for that: It's the best pub in town!
