Great atmosphere, great staff, great location and reasonable prices. Spent an afternoon with my wife and met some new friends in Boston while we enjoyed some drinks before a dinner engagement. Perfect venue for just this purpose.

Tasty and plentiful. Great friendly staff. They also serve harp which is wow. Their lobster roll is a bit pricey so shop around for this.

Walked in and the bar was in unison to the guitar player on stage. Big place yet with people responding in tandem with the entertainer, felt like one big family party. Great Irish fare in the heart of Boston.

This authentic Irish pub is located near Quincy Market. We had excellent service. I loved, loved, loved the chicken pot pie. Puff pastry covered chunky chicken and fresh vegetables with a scrumptious sauce! My husband enjoyed his fish and chips too. There was a large...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
