Great selection of beers, wine and cocktails. As if excellent food and drink were not enough, the people there were amazing - Sean and Colm were welcoming, kind and... More

My husband and I visited this authentic Irish pub and restaurant with another couple. We had the fish and chips, Guinness pie, chicken curry and shepherd's pie. All were delicious and the dessert sampler topped off an incredible meal in this authentic Irish setting. The owners pride themselves on the excellence, quality and consistency of the food. The atmosphere on... More

Very nice atmosphere and outside deck in the back. We stopped by for drinks and dinner, but after drinks were served, we did not see our waitress again.

We go there often for great food, happy ambience, good live music, and welcoming hosts. Popular with expats and locals. The place to be on New Years Eve.

Stumbled upon this place on a last minute trip to Merida. Service was great and the selection was top notch. This is a great place to meet an interesting group of folks. We enjoyed getting to know a few of the locals here.

I ate my best burger in Merida. I sat inside near a very loud band. the plate of food was huge. The beer was better than average. The service was fantastic in the very crowded, very loud large bar. I could have sat on the porch, but I liked seeing the live band upfront. The porch, was too warm, easier... More

We came to enjoy the variety of beer, and thoroughly enjoyed the food. We loved the chicken and Brie sandwich, bangers and mash was fantastic, Guinness pie, seafood chowder, all awesome. We've had better fish and chips but still great. Easy to find and lots of parking. Definitely worth a stop.
