I went to the Irish House in July with family. It was a happening little pub with live music (an Irish fiddler?) playing in the bar area. Many of the folks seemed local. I enjoyed the atmosphere, and it was perfect for our purposes (close to where we were staying), easy parking, etc; but there are better restaurants in New Orleans for less.

We stopped in for a bite to eat and play trivia. We ordered from the bar menu and had delicious sandwiches with fries. Our bill including trip was under $30 for great food and 2 hours of trivia fun. Can't beat that.

Dear DestinationDreams,
Isn't Pub Quiz Night a blast?!? Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us how much you enjoyed everything at The Irish House. We are always thrilled to hear about someone's great time in our pub. I agree with you - where else can you find good Irish food, drink and fun for such a great price? We have had such a fantastic response to our Pub Quiz Nights that we'll keep them going every Wednesday night for as long as we can. Stop in again!

Took one look at the relatively high prices of beer and fare and left without ordering. It has nice atmosphere but lowest entree was fish and chips at $ 17

Yes we came to New Orleans to soak up the atmosphere, but as Brits living in the USA sometimes you need an ice cold cider on a very hot day!

The bar service was really friendly, and I could get a packet of crisps (chips) to go with my pint - happy days :)

Dear Witchazel74,
If you like the pints and crisps at the bar, you should wander to the Shop at the back of the Pub… Cadbury's, Jaffa Cakes, biscuits, Ribena, Lucozade, tea, Taytos and lots more - perfect for ex-pats looking for a taste of home. We're also proud to serve ice cold Magner's on tap. Stop in anytime to get your fill of cider and crisps. We look forward to seeing you back again soon!

This is a great little ( non touristy) destination - especially for a group that has conservative and adventurous eaters. There are menu items that will appear to both groups here.
The Chef apparently won "Chopped" recently - but we made out decision to try this because they were having a trivia night on Wednesday. It was sooo much fun! The staff was from Ireland - and the food was fantastic.

There was a mix up in my order - and I was delivered the wrong item - the manager - whisked it away and brought out the proper item within minutes.... The wrong item looked so good - that one of my table mates decided later to order one anyway.
