I have been to many Irish bars in China in all of the Tier 1 cities and on reflection they are all very similar. Hooleys has a good selection of beers on the pricey side but this is to be expected in this area. Its worth while taking advantage of the happy hour which I believe is 5-8pm. I did... More

Drink was good, atmosphere was lively, and there was a superb jazz pianist from London on stage. An excellent night had by all.

During my stay in Guangzhou I visited hooleys every night for some drinks and food. The food was good and it had a good atmosphere. Got to watch the nrl game between west tigers and the Rabbitohs. Also watched the wallabies vs England Union game in rubgy Union so that was great. On The second floor they live music. It's... More

Been here a few times. Handy location, over priced though and mediocre over all. Very disappointed last night as went to watch Ireland playing in the Euros, a match which the advertised on their website, however it was showing only on small screens with no sound. Left and went to the bar next door which showed it on a big... More

By far the worst pick of the western bars in GZ. Ordered a burger and it came on a sweet bun...absolutely disgusting. Service is slow and often you need to keep asking where your drinks are as they are usually forgotten. Prices are more than what you'd pay in any western country. Will never go there again. Happy Monk or... More

Defo worth checking out if you like live music. Downstairs has a nice pub feel to and is a little more relaxed and upstairs id where you will get to listen to live music. I had a great time as the band that was playing at the time were awesome and funny and did quite a few requests.The place gets... More

The happy hour is buy one get one free and they have a pretty good choice of mix drinks and beers. The food is a nice taste of western food. The longer I'm out of the US, the better the food is!

My last visit at Hooleys occured when they were gouging customers during the fair. There were no seats on the western toilets and with a deteriorating beer selection there is little interest for me to return. I have been going here for several years and have left some positive reviews in the past but I feel its going downhill. Better... More

It's a nice place if you are looking for a live music.. It's quite loud tho ... I prefer the less hectic 1st floor .. The manager Jennifer is really friendly

This is a very nice Irish Pub in the in a sea of nondescript bars along a strip. Very nice selections of beers, including Guinness and Kilkenny. They have daily food specials and probably the best chicken wings in Guangzhou..
