Description: For all those who love having a cup of beer and enjoying Irish relies and jigs, old-time rolling and beatles then Irish Pub 26 is an ideal place for relaxation. The name itself explains the type and nature of the place: it is a classic Irish Pub in green tones with wooden tables and rock-ballads. In general the wooden interior of Irish Pub 26 is perfectly harmonious with the style of Irish Pubs. Under the shimmer of lamps made in the old style various debates on different topics are organized every evening: who is the best guitarist of all the times? Did Stalin want the war? How to prepare omelet? And the eternal question of all questions- Real or Barsa? There are things hanging over the walls which seem to be ordinary and simple ones: glass holders, a huge number of vinyl records, posters and picture of Captain Morgan, inscription of Guinness, as it is impossible to imagine any Irish Pub without it. But these ordinary thing impart such unique atmosphere to Irish Pub which makes you return again and again. The walls are not only covered with different things but are also with drawings. The Celtic tree of life is drawn on the wall right by the employees of Irish Pub. One more such tree decorates the ceiling just now it is on a big green substance which fits with the whole decoration of the pub. Every week parties, live concerts, broadcast of the most important football matches, competitions and many other events are organized in Irish Pub. There is hardly anyone that can imagine Irish Pub without the traditional game "What?" "Where?" "When?" held here every Thursday. Very frequently Irish holidays, for example, the day of Saint Patrick, are organized in Irish Pub. The pub offers a wide assortment of alcoholic drinks, both in pure and in cocktail forms. By the way, Irish Pub is the single place in Yerevan where Guinness beer is served: it is the drink which has become the legend of Ireland and the symbol of the day of Saint Patrick. The cuisine of Irish is European. One more important point is worth noting: in Irish Pub music playing out of loudspeakers matches with the picture on the screen that is why you will not have to look at Jagher but listen to Avril Lavin. Irish Pub is open every day at the address: 26, Parpetsi street

They have the normal choice of beer you can find at any place in Yerevan. I've been there numerous times, but every time I've ordered food they get it wrong and still charge me for the food I didn't order. I'm fluent in Armenian so this isn't a matter of a miscommunication. The first time I went there, I asked for a burger with fries, I got a plate of fries...When I asked where my burger was they said that they all ready gave it to me. I then asked if I ate the burger that I haven't gotten, where is the plate? The waitress said accused me of stealing, at which point I asked for the check and left.

Today, I was there with a friend, we ordered beers, he asked a burger and I asked for chicken fingers. I warned them they mess up orders here all the time, so we made sure with the waitress that she got our order correct. The service was super slow, but eventually one of our meals came out. after waiting for awhile, we asked where the burger was. The waitress said it was coming. After waiting more than an hour (we timed it) we said, forget it and asked for the check. The waitress charged us for the burger we never received, and got into an arguement with us about having ordered it. Needless to say, not a place worth going to if you want food. And the beer selection isn't anything special.

Visited 26 Irish Pub on Parpetsi St, a bit hard to find as it is in a basement with a small door and sign. Downstairs to a small room with about 6 tables and chairs and a billiard table and some stools by the bar. It was quite dark and quiet other than a large TV playing a Jamiroquai live concert.

They had no draught Irish beer, but they had bottled, so I settled for that. I couldn't see anything Irish on the menu, so I decided to try Chicken Strips, which were cubes of chicken breast with overcooked fries.

The people behind the bar and the waitress were very pleasant, as an Irish pub should be. Overall, it was ok for a beer or two, but sadly nothing visibly Irish at all in the food, drink or entertainment.
