“We Love This Place”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

I am almost hesitant to review this spot. The last thing I want to see is a bunch of morons ruining it. This place may not have the snazziest Irish decor, but it is the real deal. The staffers are Irish and the nicest folks of any bar in NYC. We have been several times and have always left with new friends. This is the perfect spot to hang out and visit with friends - both old and new.

“Accomodation”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Stayed here for a few nights in August. For a budget stay in New York it is perfect. So close to everything and the staff are lovely. Rooms are basic but clean and the food its good for pub grub . Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone like myself who it trying to new york on a student budget.

“Loved It”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

We stayed in the rooms over the bar recently and were so impressed. The rooms are basic but clean & the management of the bar could not do enough for us. I work in the hospitality industry & am quite fussy when it comes to my food and on the number of occassions that we ate here during our holiday I thought the food was delicious we had friends over for dinnner who were impressed too. If you are in the Union Square area go here for something to eat you will not be disappointed with the food & the great value. Jp the manager is a great host & I look forward to returning again & recommending it.

“Escape from the chaos of Union Square, just steps away”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Just a block from Union Square, a nice, welcoming, moderately priced pub. Small bar with dining room in the back. We were there late afternoon (5pm, the only two people eating) and the waitstaff and kitchen wasted no time making sure we were attended to without missing a beat. The menu has the usual array of Irish pub standards. The fish & chips were nicely fried, crisp and piping hot. Our fried calamari appetizer was also perfectly fried, though the sauce that accompanied it was a bit bland. Not a "destination" restaurant, but a calm oasis in a rather over-bustling neighborhood.
