Description: Finding an Irish pub in the centre of Amsterdam as true as Hoopman is a difficult task. Hoopman offers a broad selection of Irish whiskeys, stouts and draughts. As well as Irish drinks, Hoopman offers a great selection of pub grub. Above all our Irish staff will always give you a feeling like you are at home. Hoopman is situated on Het Leidseplein in the bustling centre of Amsterdam where you will find that Hoopman serves as a warm and cosy haven from the busy streets. In the winter you can take shelter for a warm drink inside and in the summer you can refresh yourself with a cool drink on our terrace. Hoopman organizes a ton of events over the year. We always show all main sport events on our screen, from the 6 nations' rugby to the Champions league's soccer. Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated every year with a big party where we have Irish dancers to perform traditional dances throughout the evening. Hoopman is always decorated for special days, on Halloween everything is covered in webs and for Christmas we are covered in lights and surrounded by Christmas trees. Hoopman is sure to give you a good feeling: whether you are Irish or not, our staff will certainly give you a warm Irish welcome to Amsterdam!

“Irish pub....”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

The title sums it up. It's a typical Irish pub. Plenty of Guinness on tap. The bartender was really entertaining and fun to listen to them make fun of the patrons.

“Good for a drink!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

For me, this is more a pub than a restaurant. This is a nice play to enjoy a pint and watch a sports game. The food is good but it's straightforward pub grub. The service and atmosphere are the best about the place!

“The mindless waitress”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

It was a rainy afternoon.
And we took shelter from the Leidesplein experience at an Irish pub, Hoopman.
It took ages to get a serving.
It took ages to get our orders served.
Even the waitress admitted she hadn't been focused enough.
I was in good company and did not get annoyed.
But.
I will not return.
Q:
Enter or walk on by.
A:
Walk on by.

“Never again”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

I arrived at lunch hour, thought I would give them a try. They were not busy--this should have been a clue. I was by myself, with the only other table consisting of a group of about ten. 20 minutes to order a beer, and never was able to order a meal despite asking three times. They apparently did not want my business, and I can only assume that the lack of customers was directly related to the lack of service.

“Lovely place”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

This Irish pub is no different than any other in terms of look and feel but is very very different when it comes to food and staff. The food is just awesome, and I'm talking about your classics fish n chips and the staff are quite lovely. Must try the bitterballen...
