Popped in on our way home after hearing an acoustic artist. He was pretty good but the atmosphere was electric as everyone joined in. The beers were also goo!

Went in mainly for the live music, but made good friends with a personable bartender. We got lucky enough to start a conversation with David who offered to take us to some nearby rock pools the next day. Went back in the next night and had so much fun again.. Live music every night and such a good scene. Love... More

This is a venue I have dined at several times previously. This time though I just enjoyed a beer. It’s a quite popular Irish Pub located on the main street through Surfers Paradise.

Had afew drinks here during gc600. Cheap eats & drinks available at this venue. Hard to get a seat when busy. Expect to wait at bar, when busy, to order drinks. Staff friendly enough, but were run off their feet when we were there. Venue clean enough & drinks cold. Will probably return here when next in town

Have been here a few time now. The Guinness is really good. The menu has something to cater for everyone. Prices are good and the food is very nice.

DO NOT go to this bar if you value your safety. My partner and i went and our drink was spiked with Methamphetamine and Benzodiazepine while drinking there. We have been told by venue owners and past patrons who are friends and even police that it is extremely common at this venue.

Good food live music and easy on the wallet drinks. What more you do you need for good time. Great location easy to find and very close to the central city.

Food was great (reasonably priced as well), atmosphere great, barstaff were miserable and not that happy to interact. Irish folk are always happy to chat - not so authentic. Music was good, security were friendly.
