I was on holiday in Osaka with the Missus. Googled pubs in Umeda and this came up. Fairly easy to find as it's on a shopping street. We arrived early doors, to make the most of the happy hour deals. We had various drinks (beers and cocktails) and three or four items from the food menu. Everything was really good,... More

If you are looking for a fun night put with good friends, or maybe you are looking for great food with a friendly atmosphere. Look no further than this pleasant little hideaway in the heart of Osaka! The Blarney Stone Osaka has been serving patrons since May 2003.

Had a great night in here - the beer is reasonably priced, the bar staff are great and all speak perfect English and the pool table is always a good laugh. Unlike most Irish pubs abroad, it's actually owned by an Irish man from Wicklow and Tom has managed to bring the feel of a proper Irish pub here. We... More

The Blarney Stone is always a favorite stop on trips to Osaka. A little hard to find, but worth the exploration. The food menu is basic, but good. Typically western food, favorites are burgers, pizza, wings, and the sausage plate. Drink menu is good and definitely Irish. Where else in Japan can you have a draft Kilkenny? Cash only...so they...

Stopped in for a beer after dinner. As you would expect it was pretty busy, but not packed. Service at the bar or at table. Plenty of seating and a pool table available. They also have a small stage area and had a rock/blues band which really got everyone going. Only downside is the smoke but this was not even... More

This pub was a little hard to find but well worth it when we got there. Stepping inside it was hard to remember we were in Japan and although we are enjoying Japanese culture it was nice to sit down with a pint and have a game of pool. Staff were very friendly and the food was quite good, almost... More

A bit hard to fine but it's only one of two bars friendly to English speaking tourists. Found it in a very interesting district that had walking streets with restaurants bars etc. Your typical Irish pub but a nice comfortable find if you want a break from Japanese Restaurants bars.
