Description: Traditional Irish Pub and Restaurant with a menu to feature classic Irish Fare, mixed with contemporary favorites like our corned beef poppers. We also have vegetarian, and gluten free options. Our chef chooses fresh local ingredients, as well as hand cuts our steaks and fish. Our first cut corned beef is prepared in house and is a local favorite. Our pub is warm, and we have live local music Thursday thru Saturday nights, and our Sunday Brunch is award winning featuring a full buffet and $1.50 Mimosas. We get our oysters local and fresh daily and pride ourselves on being a local oyster recovery station and certified green restaurant.

An over-crowded bar with "simple bar food" at higher restaurant prices.

Lots of yuppies trying to impress each other. No atmosphere. Not much fun.

This has become our "Cheers" in the Severna Park area. It's a charming place with good food and great service. The beer selection and seasonal menu keep us coming back. (And it's next to an adorable stationary store and tobacco shop - perfect for his and hers shopping before or after drinks)

Both Brian Boru in Severna Park and Galway Bay (Downtown Annapolis) are owned by The Irish Restaurant Company, and Brian Boru has basically the same delicious menu as it's sister restaurant. Great gluten-free menu, as well. I do prefer the Irish pub atmosphere at Galway Bay over Brian Boru's more restaurant-y vibe, but still a very enjoyable experience with nice service and clean facilities.

In nearby Annapolis over the holiday weekend, and we overlooked the seafood for a bit of the pub fare. This Irish restaurant has some excellent prime rib, no mullarkey. Reasonably priced and perfectly prepared, a most enjoyable meal, served by a personable waiter directly from the old country. Thumbs up.

My wife and I decided to try the Sunday brunch after a recommendation from a co-worker. We arrived and immediately noticed an offensive smell. Smelled like a mix of cleaning compound and rancid fat.

The beacon was good, The sausage barely warm. The scrambled eggs were horrendous. The make your own waffles were good, In the end a very disappointing visit.

We still visit for burger night, but that's all.
