The Goose's Acre Irish Pub stood on Main Street, Midleton, Ireland, immediately in front of "The Goose's Acre," a historical landmark named by locals where geese gaggles grazed in the 1800's. The pub opened in 1886 and was handed down from father to son through the years. In 2005, the pub was forced to close to make way for new development.

Although it meant shipping the pub across the Atlantic Ocean, the previous owner was ecstatic that The Goose's Acre Irish

Great Irish Pub located on The Woodlands Waterway. Weekdays they offer dinner specials that are a great value. Monday is fish and chips for $10. Generous portion of Cod and fries cooked perfectly. Recommend going their for dinner and drinks.

We sat outside with a view of the waterway. It took some time to get the attendance of the waiter, but that was the only small problem. The food was excellent (all of us had burger) and the price is reasonable. We will come back!
