Love to go in and jam to the live music on any given night. They have a great selection of beers on tap and they rotate beers on a regular basis. Food is also good pub grub.

Haley's is the typical New York Irish Pub, except that it is in Metuchen, the people are friendlier and the food is better.

Good beer, live music. The food is good enough. There are TVs playing sports, but no sound so it isn't too distracting.

It is a great place to drink some good beers and spend time with friends while watching a match or listening to good music. They have live bands and the place has a great atmosphere

It's a good thing my husband and I stopped in for an early dinner because as the day wears on, this place gets busier and louder.

Haileys was recommended by several locals. We were thoroughly pleased with entire experience. Easy street parking, awesome bar for cocktails, plenty of tvs in case the guys want to catch a game before dinner, extensive menu that didn't disappoint. Prices were very reasonable and staff was on top of their game. Great Service!

Went on a Sunday afternoon. Not too crowded or noisy (as I've read it could be). This is simply a wonderful Irish Pub. I've been to some great English Pubs in England and this one rivals any I've been to. I love the county banners and references to "real" football (soccer). Being it was our first time here, we went... More
