We were in Boston for 4 nights and ended each evening at Mr. Dooley's. We only had sandwiches but can say those were very good. Terry the bartender was really friendly as were the waitresses. We loved listening to the live Irish music each night and enjoying a pint of Guiness and a drink of Red Breast. The pub reminded me of some of the ones in Dublin.

Just get in relex from the music and drink Guiness
The easiest way to find it's located next to Hilton hotel.

Mr. Dooley's is a not-to-miss pub if you're spending any time in the financial district / Quincy market area. It's only a couple of blocks from either. The Guiness is the best in town. The menu is not too extensive, very much what you'd find in a country pub in Ireland, Wales or western England.

The curry is terrific. The fish and chips dish is too. The Shepherds pie is rich and savory.

It can be very busy at lunch on a weekday. Good entertainment in the evenings. If you're in Quincy Market or the financial district, do not miss this place. Great for just a drink in the middle of the day or for lunch or dinner.
