Description: Hennessy's Irish Pub: Bringing an authentic taste of Ireland to Merida, Mexico. Opened in late 2010 by Irish expats Sean Hennessy and Colm Cooney, Hennessy's has quickly become one of Merida's favorite watering holes and resturants, popular with locals, expats and travelers alike. Don't miss Hennessy's stunning front bar, cozy Polo Bar in back, open-air patio and billiard room. In addition to its stellar Fish-n-Chips, don't-miss menu items include stunning curries, fresh salads and delicious steaks. Hennessy's also offers a great selection of beer, wine, cocktails and Irish Whiskey. And Guinness, of course.

This is an oasis of great beers, friendly staff, great food and enough of a local hang out to feel like a genuine pub.
The design is what Irish pubs want to be, inside very comfortable chairs, a great bar full of all the top shelf selections and a beer menu like no other In Merida.
The front patio is great at night sitting right on the beautiful paseo montejo.
All the pub grub selections are spot on
And prime rib on Sundays are a must.
But in the end, the most important detail of this classic Irish pub, its actually owned and operated by a couple of Irish guys!
The quintessential hosts!!
Like everyone else I will go back again and again!!

A great place to hang with friends, meet new friends and relax on Paseo! The staff is great- the owners make everyone feel welcome and I love taking visitors there! Whether you live in Merida or are just visiting definitely a great place to have a meal! Hennessey's is also great place to enjoy a taste of the pubs I remember in the US with the bonus of getting to meet people from all over the world! Can't remember ever walking out not having a fun night!

Hennessy's Irish Pub was "just OK". The food and drinks were typically overpriced for the Paseo de Montejo area but the pub was comfortable and a good escape from your Merida immersion.

First of all I want to address some of the comments about Hennesseys being over priced. It's true it isn't cheap, but there are a few affordable items, which we tried. For Merida, I guess it's a little spendy. But if you went to Cancun or Playa del Carmen, these prices would be quite average. If you want to see expensive in Merida, stop in at Rosas y Xocolate just down the street! That being said, I ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese (one of the cheaper items of course). It was 95 pesos I believe. It was good Bolognese but I would have preferred traditional marinara sauce (not offered). My wife had the fish and chips, about 140 pesos, and she thoroughly enjoyed them. We shared a Caesar salad which not bad. All in all a good meal and not overpriced in my opinion. Most of the other entrees were around 130-180 pesos.
