A very warm welcome from friendly staff who are trying hard to make this a fun and enjoyable place (rare in Lyon). A bit of a party pub and pre-club venue, especially at weekends, which makes sense for its location. Better than it looks from...the outside. Open late, and lively (loud) in the evenings.More

Went to the Monday night quiz at Flanigans which is always good fun. Unfortunately we had to wait for 20 minutes to buy a drink because they don't employ enough barstaff to cope with the customers. We ordered food which was quite frankly, barely edible....My friend's dish was a plate of UFO's (unidentified fried objects) which were horrible. All three of us had an upset stomach afterwards. Standards have really dropped at this pub. A few years ago it was very good.More

Great quiz on Monday nights, but not enough staff serving behind the bar. It takes for ages to get a drink. A shame the bar upstairs is not usually open.

Beautiful bar, built by South African Irish diaspora. Inspired by the Gin Palace in Dublin if you ever feel like going to Ireland. Has been sold little two years ago to a group of three french "businessmen". But now there is nothing else Irish about...the place. The few regulars know it, and you would know it too. Prices are pretty cheap regarding the draught beers on Happy Hour, but so is probably the paycheck of the majority of the staff and the day-to-day students working there. Food is really expensive since they raised their prices greatly the past few months, without increasing the poor quality, plus most of the food isn't made there. The only good things are the fries/chips which are surprisingly delicious (also the only thing homemade there), AND the staff. The French-style version of an "Irish Pub" that tries and turn itself into a club on the weekends. That would unfortunately include shady characters late in the night. Mens toilets ricks and all this is probably what they mean by their motto "More than a Pub".More

If you want to enjoy beer and burgers, and at the same time watch some sports on tv, so this place is a good choice. It seems to be popular among the local people. The staff speaks good English so if French is not your...strength, you don't have to pass this pub :-)More

Was visiting with an Irish friend who is a friend of the chap who owns this place so it was inevitable that we would end up in here. The usual "craic" was interrupted by a gang of youths who ran in and raided the bar...while the barman's back was turned and all hell broke loose. But that's just part of the unpredictable scene. There's an unwritten lore in this plastic Paddy bars, the owner's know it's a bit naff and nothing like an authentic Irish boozer, you know it is and the other customers do too....but everyone smiles, has a good laugh and you fork out for over-priced but usually tasty and well kept Guinness and lager and fried comfort foods. A few "Irish flags" later and you can't recall if you were in Diceys, Waxy's or O' Hooleys but you have a vague recollection of having a laugh. Take it for what it is and enjoy yourself.More

We were in this "Irish" pub watching the build up to the Ireland v Italy match and two minutes to kick off they switched to Belgium v Sweden and despite requests from three different groups refused to put the Ireland game on so we left

I've been to this Irish Pub probably 10 to 15 times and just realized I have never reviewed it. I was there again last night. Flanigan's is your typical Irish pub and a local hangout. The price of drinks is reasonable and the food is...really good. Their burgers are big and tasty as is their chicken sandwich. The place is always packed. The bartenders speak very good English in this French city and most of the customers speak English as well. Worth the trip especially if your home sick and needing some good food with bartenders who are friendly and speak your language. Service is at the bar. They don't wait on you but they will bring your food to the table when it's ready.More
