This is a Irish Pub, dark small with the best staff to make you feel at home and forget the rest of the world. Good conversation. If I lived in Charlotte I would be a regular.

You may be wondering why there are not tons of pics... this is a real deal - very dark inside Irish pub - where you are going to get a real drink. I am a huge fan of Irish Whiskys and they did not disappoint me! The staff is knowledgeable about their liquor and fun to talk with throughout the... More

This bar is so awesome. Great outdoor area and nice bartenders. I loved the decor. The bathroom had a huge line forever to wait in, I ended up leaving this bar to find a shorter bathroom line. I would return. Check them out sometime :)

The staff here is awesome. They went out of there way to give excellent service. It's a fun place with a really cool outdoor courtyard. Fantastic place to late-night or pre game. We didn't eat there but I would definitely try it.

Had the pleasure of staying in Americas best kept secret Charlotte for a week and stumbled across this wonderful Irish Pub on the first night and that was it I was hooked straight away. With the best Guinness outside of Ireland I have ever tasted the real secret to this pub is the staff. With lads from the four corners... More

Like most cities in the US (and the world), Charlotte has several 'Irish' bars - but it is important to highlight that putting a neon shamrock sign outside does not make your bar Irish (note to the Selwyn Avenue Pub), nor does giving the bar a gaelic name (note to Ri Ra). What makes a bar Irish is the craic,... More

We stopped in on a recommendation from another wait person at Dandelion. Great JOINT. Good Irish beer. Outdoor garden. Games to play.

Great bar, we were upstairs for a gathering before a Friday night wedding. The owner Tommy was a fantastic host and all of his staff were top notch. Downstairs was also full on this Thursday night and with all of the choices in downtown Charlotte it is obvious this is one of the hot spots for the people downtown. Hope... More
