Visited this pub after a busy day climbing around Mesa Verde. It was just what the Doctor ordered. Chicken pot pie was the special and was very good. Nice atmosphere and great staff.

Came here on a suggestion of a local and it was delicious and worth it. Not wheelchair accessible though, that was a little tricky. The fish and chips were wonderful and could be easily be split. The Mac and cheese was savory and has a...More

Our group of 4 had a mixed experience here. The fish and chips are pretty good, not awesome. The chicken pot pie was bland and not good. The Rueben tasted good but only had one slice of corned beef on it. Really? The bangers and...More

Several of us went initially for happy hour and the place was hopping. Service was good and the atmosphere was fun. We later went back for dinner and their fish and chips was really good. Prices are fair and the service was great.

The fish and chips were recommended, but we did not think they were that good. The beer batter was dull. Fun atmosphere in a central area of town.

Pleasant Irish pub, nice atmosphere. Good staff. This review clouded by the fact that they serve Shepherd’s Pie. Suffice to say no Irish shepherd would recognize this. It is made with minced beef, and too sweet. An expensive waste of money. Shame.

Enjoyed my first visit to the Irish Embassy Pub. Ordered their fish tacos. They were good, especially the fresh cabbage salsa. The fish was lightly breaded and tasty. I sat at the bar and my bartender (Carmen)was awesome. My experience overall was perfect. An added...More

We went here for dinner on a Monday night. The place is very attractive, and had about six or seven tables occupied. There were only two people working the bar and dining room. The waiter who helped us was very nice, but with the place...More

We were looking for a relaxed place to eat in Durango and we came upon the Irish Embassy, it appeared to be popular so we thought we would try it. We had a really good meal of corned beef and cabbage. Our server was friendly.

Conveniently located in historic downtown Durango, the Embassy is a local favorite. The pub is authentic Irish - every piece of furniture, every picture, every glass was shipped directly from Ireland. So if you’re wanting to take a trip to the Emerald Isle without leaving town, stop on by. Enjoy a 20-ounce Imperial Pint of Guinness, a tasty serving of our famous fish and chips, or listen to a traditional Irish jam.
