When in the mood for something different and comforting, I head to Dargan's. Try the Mushroom soup and the Shepard's Pie! And of coarse a pint of Irish Beer!

Music is the main reason to visit Dargan's. Thurs night group is the best. The food is not the reason for a visit. The service is outstanding and of course, the Guinness is cold and good. Yes, please visit.

I went to Dargan's for the UCSB band's concert and a few drinks. Great atmosphere and great Irish beer! The bartenders were quick and friendly. I would recommend this for a late night bar.

Great traditional Irish pub with outstanding food. Shepherd's pie and Irish stew was excellent. Good selection of Irish and local beers. Pool hall connected. Only in town for two days and already planning on coming back.
