Now this is an Irish Bar. In the small snug in the left hand section of the building you do actually feel like you're in an Irish pub. Our barman was a chatty lad from Southern Ireland, fresh off the plane a couple of weeks earlier and with a great enthusiasm. We chatted away about this and that and had the temperature outside not been quite so high I could almost have forgotten I was in Sydney. Back in the main part of the pub, it was packed as ever it is on a Friday, with overspill snaking out onto the street, as diverse a mixture as you'll see in the Rocks. Everyone was enjoying the Craic and much Guinness flowed. Cheers!

i like this pub but the only problem is they only sell Guinness in schooner glasses but still charge for a pint plus its crap guinness. Go there for the music and a laugh with mates but stay away from the Guinness

A great place to watch a game and a great location. One of the best places to spend all night if you have the time.

This is by far the best pub in Sydney. No questions asked. Best music, Irish women and beer. No arguments. If you want a great time, go here.

Our ship ran aground last year. Me and Rab lived there for weeks. Fantastic music and sexy ladies. Highly recommended by the Royal Navy!

Most memories are of a Tuesday night not to long ago, dancing on the celler doors and managing to crack a sweat. Great music, a bit tight, but well worth it!! sweeeet
