Nice little Irish Pub, with good Finger Food (Hamburger, French Fries, etc.) nice selection of different beers (well a little bit more expensive, but good) Good music, perfect place to get a „European rest“ from Japan, if needed.

I walked by this pub while on a business trip in Kyoto. It was shortly after opening on a Sunday so it was pretty empty. The bartender was friendly and a good English speaker. I had a few draft Kilkenny’s and lunch, a tasty pub-style...More

The previous reviews about this pub were very positive. I found it disappointing, over priced and lacking any atmosphere. Was it supposed to be Irish? The worse pub I have been into whilst in Japan.

Guiness on tap is available. Drinks are rather expensive though. There is a friendly vibe and the food choices are okay. Found the risotto to be a bit small. While it looked like vegetarian on the menu it actually had meat in it.
