We found the place just walking a few minutes arround Shinjuku area,the lighting, the decor, the atmosphere and just about everything was inviting s in. the owner Will, greeted us with his bright smile and soon we ordered from the great wide selection of Beers. What he recommended was AMAZINGly tasty!!!
***It started to rain purely and Will gave us 2 umbrellas*** now. We don't know if by visiting there you'd get an umbrella but- the visit is for sure worth it!!! Cheers. Oh. Try to arrive before seven o'clock. HAPPY HOUR!!!

It all happened by chance, we stumbled upon this gem on a quiz night (which was great craic), we had so much fun and the hospitality we received was fantastic, we just had to go back! And it so happened it was music night! Chances are you will see Will (the owner), and what a guy he is, the perfect man to own an Irish pub. If like us you go to at least one Irish bar when you're away, make it this one. The decor, the atmosphere, the food, the company were above and beyond 5* for us! Cheers Will!

Can't get over this place, Creme de la Creme of nice welcoming Irish pubs. Staff are fantastic, this is really what makes it. Will, (even if he is from Tipp) knows how to run a great pub. Food is beyond good for a pub of this size and a nice little selection of Irish Whiskies. Recently turned 4 yrs old also. Otanjōbiomedetōgozaimasu!

The food, drink, music and most importantly, the craic, are all fantastic at An Solas. I especially recommend the famous "Tipperary Burger"- a freshly made beef burger with Cashel blue cheese. The pints of Guinness taste like they do at home (in Ireland) and there's always something going on- from table quizzes to Irish music sessions to live GAA (Irish football and hurling) matches being shown on television. The decor is also reminiscent of Ireland with many quirks including signed sports jerseys, "I love Cork" signs, old Irish product tins and packaging etc. It's a real taste of home and a haven for the Irish living in Tokyo. Well worth a visit- though you may spend the rest of your trip there once you arrive.

This is more of a locals pub serving Irish food and hospitality. It was welcoming to a tourist and the food was good. The bartender was friendly and very helpful. It was worth the effort to find it.
