Description: The Goose's Acre Irish Pub stood on Main Street, Midleton, Ireland, immediately in front of "The Goose's Acre," a historical landmark named by locals where geese gaggles grazed in the 1800's. The pub opened in 1886 and was handed down from father to son through the years. In 2005, the pub was forced to close to make way for new development. While back in Ireland visiting relations, Brian Young and Colm O'Neill proposed purchasing the contents of the pub, to include both bars, from the previous owner who was distraught over the pending loss of the pub's history and heritage. Although it meant shipping the pub across the Atlantic Ocean, the previous owner was ecstatic that The Goose's Acre Irish Pub would continue its traditions of bygone times. Brian Young and Colm O'Neill made the decision to bring this authentic pub to The Woodlands to share the romance and history of years past. We welcome you to pull up a chair and enjoy the experience of The Woodlands only authentic European Pub. You'll find Happy Hour (all day long!), a traditional yet inventive bar and dining menu, the best drinks a most a truly irreplicable Irish Pub feel with the beautiful, hardwood fixtures and original furnishings.

The location is perfect being on the waterway and they have great food/drink specials! Also, love the history of "The Gooses Acre".

Goose's Acre has a great location facing the Woodlands Waterway, but it has more to offer than the atmosphere. Good burgers, well prepared pub favorites, and excellent salads are among the solid choices on the broad, family-friendly menu.

This is an authentic pub on the inside, they have two levels and two levels of outdoor seating as well. Nice beer selection, I always go for a local brew. I have been for lunch and dinner have sat inside and out. The outdoor seating is directly on the water walk.

My wife and I enjoyed our meal very much. The fish and chips were great, taste and temperature
was perfect. My wife had the Shepherd's Pie and loved it. We would recommend and return. Our
server got everything just right. The reception when we came in could have been much better.
Overall very good.

They serve several types of beers and staff is friendly with foreigners. Also tasted their excellent sandwiches well served. The bar is located in front of a water channel which is very attractive.
