Self-proclaimed "a little bit of Ireland," this cozy pub would indeed fit right in amidst the neighborhood favorites of Galway and Dublin. The decor speaks of the Emerald Coast as well: dark wood, exposed beams, brick walls, wrap-around wainscoting and a fireplace flanked by a high stone wall. The tables here are placed close to one another, making it easy to sit and chat with friends or share reactions with those around you as you watch the action on one of the five TVs dedicated to various sports events. The bar is peopled by die-hard Cubs fans, making it the perfect place to catch a game; additional perks include a pool table, dartboard and arcade game.
Lunch and dinner fare is plentiful and affordable, with prices ranging from $1-$8 and a kitchen that stays open until midnight. Daily specials provide even more dining options, including half-price appetizer Wednesdays and beer-battered fish and chips on Fridays. The specials extend to drinks and entertainment as well, with deals like free pool (Tuesdays) and $3 Coronas (Thursdays). The full bar includes domestic and import draughts and bottles, wines by the glass, goods for any mixed drink you may fancy and "Celtic potables" that are house specialties.
With stools lining the large wooden bar on the main floor and tables surrounding the fireplace, the bar accommodates small and large groups. An additional grotto downstairs offers yet another spot perfect for one-on-one chats or private parties. A pool table, second bar, low tables and chairs, cushy old couch and soft, intimate lighting surrounded by a leopard-inspired rug and rich, burgundy walls create an eclectic atmosphere with a clubhouse feel.
