Nice little pub, atmosphere is typical of an irish pub in Europe. Good selection of beers. Bar staff very friendly. Nice selection of music. 70s 80s and irish. I Recommend a visit. Very close to the rail station. No food, so eat first.

Just stopped in with friends for a few beers. The waitress was ver so pleasant, and obliging. Excellent selection of beers. The waitress even went so far as to round up a band aid for one of us.

Nice pub in the city centre. Very helpful and friendly staff, even at hectically busy times with very trying groups of stag and hen parties. Good beer and an enjoyable atmosphere

Is located on the south side of the Dom on a busy plaza. It has tables outside. The beer catalog was limited but with some Irish beers included. I had the local Kolsch and pay 4 euros. The stuff was speaking in English but he was very serious. No food in the menu. Nice place for a quick drink.

Loved going in here, we were there most nights when visiting the christmas markets. Staff were very friendly, drinks were well priced, atmosphere was buzzing. Really is a place to visit while around the central part of cologne.

Thank DaveLovesHisHolidays
