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 worst fish and chips ever...in a pub. The service was good and friendly, the place is nice and obviously well situated but since it is classified as a restaurant here, all that doesn't make up for the quality of the meal.

My husband and I were asked to leave the restaurant because we are a mixed race couple and the manager told me that "people take offense to that around here". Are you kidding me???? We used to come here all the time. These racist people actually charged us for the drinks that we did not drink and the food that we did not get to finish. There are better places out there.

Authentic pub atmosphere and great decor. Food was good (had the steak). Get a discount off your bill when bringing your concert stub from the Pavilion right down the road.

Had the meatza-pizza. Good. Not too much grease to sop up with extra napkins. Pleasant setting along the waterway. Half off one day a week.

This place is a real Irish Pub that was built in Ireland and shipped to Woodlands, Texas. You can get there by foot or take the woodlands waterway boat right to the water front patio door. It has a water level patio and a water view upstairs area. We were met right away by a friendly host and was seated outside on the the canal. The view was awesome watching the birds,people and the tour boat cruise by. Our waitress was Ashley who handled our order and several special requests without missing a step and always with a smile. The cedar plank salmon and authentic shepherds pie was outstanding. If you get a chance walk thru the pub and check out all the Irish history. This whole area is full of shopping,Restaurants,and activities. The Pub would have got an excellent but I have PET peeve about people bringing there dogs into a restaurant eating area(Patio) Also this area of town your allowed to smoke on the patios which forced us to give up a prime table. We would eat there again.
