This is a pleasant courtyard with a small museum and a bar attached. Pleasant staff, good Irish whiskey, and other drinks including a restorative ginger tea--which we earned from the barkeep was a treatment for cholera back in the days of the Irish immigration boom....More

If you are interested in Irish history, this is a must hit. The museum is not very large, but it's not the size that matters, it's the passion behind it. This is a self funded (along with visitor donations) little Irish museum proud of their...More

We just had the greatest time here! The museum was cool and there were $3 pints of Guinness! Had a great time taking with the owner Mathew. A welcome change to the craziness of Bourbon Street. Highly recommend!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
