With fewer and fewer of the old places surviving its always a pleasure to be in the abbey. Dave, Ricky, Micheal, Theresa and the rest of the staff are always the best. While I mostly call it my home away from home and drink a lot of harp, whenever I do order food its always tasty and fresh..... They always... More

I am an Irish person who went into this bar for some appetizers and drinks recently. While sitting at the bar alone enjoying my food and drinks, some members of staff sat around having drinks and chatting.

The atmosphere is comfortable and like a typical Irish pub (especially during football and rugby matches). If you want a cool pub... More

We were looking for at place to have a refreshing beer, and from the outside it seemed lovely. When the waitress finaly decided to acknowledge us, she rolled her eyes at a simple question I made about the beer selection and answered very crudely. We definitely will NOT go back there.

Despite being from the US it was a nice change of pace to visit this Irish pub in Rome. The drinks were great as was the food. Definitely recommend visiting.

I spent some time away from the family to watch Wimbledon and have a few beers during. Good location, good crowd, funny and talkative bar staff. St. Michael the bar man was particularly funny with no in-ambitions. I would go back next time I am in Rome and I recommend to all.

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.
