Description: Located within the Grace Hotel complex on the corner of King & York Streets P.J.O'Brien's offers a taste of Ireland in the heart of the CBD. The warm glow of the open fire and traditional Irish music drowning out the hustle and bustle of city life. As daylight fades the 'craic' begins, settle in with a creamy pint of Guinness or one of our many beers, wines and spirits. Our kitchen offers a variety of savoury Irish dishes, pizza and contemporary pub meals. Let the friendly staff at P.J.O'Brien's make your day or night an occasion to remember, come in, kick back and discover the 'craic' that P.J.O'Brien's is famous for

“Top Irish Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Service very friendly and food very good quality for the price.We met up with some friends and spent just about every afternoon and night there over a five day period and really enjoyed the atmosphere this pub has to offer. Will be going back again when we visit in October of this year.

“Upstairs at PJ's is a real surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great food at very reasonable prices and friendly service.
Steak with a couple of BIG prawns only $24. Drinks a good price. Bottle shop limited but a good wine shop just up the road.

“Nice beer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I like a pint of Kilkenny, however I did not like getting different change each time I bought one.. a certain barman was not to be trusted, food was OK but we have better pub food available here in Bathurst and a better Irish pub!

“Top irish pub and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Great place for good pub grub with a Guiness. Food is in very generous portions and served quickly. If the inside noise is too much sit in the table area between the Grace hotel and PJ's much quieter and still indoors. Great.
