I would classify this as a place where you can have a beer, eat some food, and leave without keeping a memory.

The place is rather big and very central, open until late; due tot he presence of many hotels in the nearby area, I guess is very frequented by tourists.

Menu is a mixture, there's quite a bit of Italian food as well. Food was OK. Did not check the wines (in an Irish bar it would sound weird), beer choice is basic.

Overall, no high or low points.

Food is terrible, staff are rude, prices high for the quality of food and drink. I've been to many Irish bars in Europe but this has to be the worst....

Next to our hotel Artemide so stumbled in all blurry eyed. Glad we did as food was good, service pleasant and price was very reasonable.

Came upon this place by chance, didn't realise it was an "Irish Bar" until we got the menu, a mixture of some pub favourites and Italian fodder.I went for the Cesar Salad, well I was in Rome!
Meal arrived though with no additional accompaniments, or some nice Italian bread. Meal comprised 85% lettuce, 10% croutons and sadly 5% chicken, what there was tasted nice, just lacking any generosity in meat, especially for around £9.

We didn't eat at this place, but stopped off for a drink on route to a tourist attraction. We found it to be very similar to our pubs back home, but were immersed in walls covered in exotic currency...

The staff weren't overly friendly, but nothing I wouldn't expect from a wetherspoons back home.
