Lovely find while it may be an Irish pub it is in a quaint little locale and has great lunch deals with fantastic staff. There are still Italian inspired dishes here too!

This wonderful Irish Pub was just meters away from our accommodation, located almost opposite the famous La Gelateria Frigidarium (best gelatos in Rome). Responding to the call of a Guinness, my husband took me with him to visit. The pub is like a tardis - small looking on the outside but heaps of room inside. Happy hour is from midday... More

If you need to go out in Rome the abbey is the place to go to! Besides the bar tenders being awesome, you meet a great group of people who can become your friends for life. If you don't come to the abbey while your in Rome you don't do Rome right! Shout out to my homies Dave, Dan, Jordi,... More

On our last day in Rome we discovered this Irish gem We were welcomed to the premises by Ricky from Co Kildare and the cider & pinot grigio went down really well We indulged in the beef & guinness pie and the chilli con carne and both lived well up to our expectations too! Our only regret is that we... More

Good pint, nice pub and loads of sport Bar staff in no hurry to serve unless you are a regular. Kept waiting for over 5 minutes with no queue because they were chatting.

Taco Night is on Tuesdays and Thursdays and you get tacos for 1 euro each (minimum 3) and they are delicious! Don't be scared by the fact that you are getting Mexican food from an Irish pub in Italy, these tacos are legit

When in Rome, and that's a great place to be, you may have a desire to check up on your teams or just have a proper pint. This is an excellent spot for watching a game and enjoying classic pub food. It's just a short walk from Piazza Navona. For more than a decade this spot has been on my... More

The pub takes its name from the world renowned Irish National Theatre, which was founded by William Butler Yeats and Lady Gregory.Stage props and costumes from the storerooms of the Abbey Theatre have been used in the decor, giving the pub a very special atmosphere.The six fully air conditioned rooms of the pub are spread over two floors, and a huge range of Irish whiskeys, cocktails and long drinks are on offer, as well as Irish beers on tap including, of course, the famous Guinness.The Abbey Theatre offers irish, italian and international cuisine all day everyday. We are able to show all major sports throughout the pub on 14 TV screens. ( NFL, Premiership, Serie A, Rugby World Cup...). The pub has a happy hour during the daytime, live irish music every week, and free Wi-Fi.The pub also offers private parties or weddings. Our welcoming pub, is considered one of the best in the city and it is laid out in typical Irish style with lots of little rooms linked by narrow corridors.

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
