Description: Hooley's Irish Pub brings an authentic slice of Irish culture to Guangzhou. On a daily basis we'll whip you up a menu of traditional Irish pub grub, freshly baked bread, traditional Irish fare and even some modern fusion cuisine. Guinness, Kilkenny and much more on tap. Big frozen fruit drinks and a modern cocktail menu for the ladies! Regular live music performances plus big screen satellite sports.Hospitality exudes naturally from our staff; they have a good-natured mixture of gossip, wit, conversation, debate and information, proffered with friendly efficient service and that all important smile.

Let me start with the reason I tried this bar... They have the greatness of Kilkenny on tap. Food was good, (it's pub food, but its good) Philly Cheese steak was my fav out of that, fish'n chips, chicken cordon blue. Yes I spent a few evenings there.... As I mentioned they have Kilkenny. Staff was friendly, & English was better than expected. Sean the owner was often present & hanging out with customers. The entertainment was enjoyable, live band "Brue" played variety of music... & very well I might add. The Triva game was quite fun, although my team lost horribly. Check this place out if u are looking for Kilkenny, or just simply an Irish Pub. Hooley's is easily accessible from the APM line.
Note, I don't work for Kilkenny nor am I affiliated with them. It's just my Personal favorite, & can't seem to get it where I live.

had a good time, listened to a live band and a live dj, danced a little, and had a drink... A nice place for a girl's night out... lots of Westerners and Chinese mixing together... always great to see people hanging out together... After all, living in such a homogeneous country for the last 4 years, GZ is a breath of fresh air... Somehow, feel more accepted here, than anywhere else in China... China still has a long way to go with acceptance of other people... the title of "foreigner" for people from other countries has to go sometime soon... the word "person" and "people" -- don't matter where the person is from is usually the norm (everywhere else, that is...) than again, wondering... what are the Chinese going to do, if there are no "foreigners" left to gawk at, take pictures of, or to make fun of? or to cheat at the market?

If you really come from a British/Irish working class background then the food will probably make you homesick. It is not great by all mean, in fact I think the new chef made it more authentic by making it worse. But it will satisfy those cravings.

This pub has a great atmosphere and offers really good food. The food choices in Guangzhou has increased over the last 10 years and it is good to know that the food at Hooleys is always consistent. A good meeting place to watch sport on TV.

The Buffalo wings are juicy and yummy. After loads of Chinese Cuisine.. all i wanted was some wings and a good beer! Hooleys provided that and so much more.
