We go here often for casual dining. They have the best corned beef whether it's on the Reuben sandwich or boxtie. Their Shepherds pie, fish and chips and Dublin burger always satisfies. A local family favorite for us when we have a taste for Irish food.

I ordered fish and chips as everyone commented on how good they were. They were ok, but I've had better. The wife had shepherds pie and thought it reminded her of Dinty Moore Beef Stew. Oh well may not eat here again.

Located on a strip of Northwest Highway, where there are a few restaurants, even a couple other Irish pubs, Curragh sets itself apart from the rest with good Irish selections. We started out with mozzarella cheese sticks and they were the lightest cheese sticks I have ever had. The kids absolutely loved them. The Guinness cheese soup was very good.... More

The Curragh is wonderful with groups. Very easy to make a reservation for 20 or more. The group can order right off the menu and all be served meals at the same time. Food is very good.

Surprisingly large and well laid out party room upstairs. Above average bar food - wings, sliders, chop salad - laid out buffet style with great service. Been to the main dining area in the past where service was a bit slower. Overall, good experience....

We enjoy sitting outside on the patio for lunch here on a sunny day. The staff is friendly and the food is good. We enjoy the Ceili Spuds too! The Cider French Onion soup is hot and wonderful if you are there in the winter, also can sit by the fire inside if you go in the winter. We often... More

The interior of this bar makes you feel like you are in Ireland. Rich wood throughout, great service and really, really good food. It's a step above typical bar food. I've had a spinach salad with grilled salmon on top. The salmon was cooked perfectly (not overdone or sushi style). Love this place for lunch too. Nice little outdoor seating,... More

One of favorite places to go for a Friday "no cooking night". Groupon often makes it better. We love the fish and chips and the corned beef is authentic. We enjoy the atmosphere, the staff is always friendly and efficient. Of course it's a great place to have a pint.

We'd been here in the past (3-4 years ago or so) and enjoyed it but we came again recently and were disappointed. The place wasn't even crowded and it took a long time to order, for drinks to arrive, and to reorder drinks. My husband asked the waitress what a particular drink was and she replied by simply saying the... More
