Love this place! The burger was spectacular and I love big fat french fries. The bartender was attentive and the lemon drop martini was very good.

There is no doubt you are in the Irish Embassy when you enter. Even the Gaelic on the wall tells you where you are. The interesting thing here is the lack of TVs. It is truly more of a meeting place. While we were there...More

This place is a historic site in Durango. It is located on Main Street. Inside you experience the architecture of the period. Each Irish pub's signature dish is the Shepherd's pie and it was unique. Topped with a rough mashed potato, it immediately created a...More

Conveniently located in historic downtown Durango, the Embassy is a local favorite. The pub is authentic Irish - every piece of furniture, every picture, every glass was shipped directly from Ireland. So if you’re wanting to take a trip to the Emerald Isle without leaving town, stop on by. Enjoy a 20-ounce Imperial Pint of Guinness, a tasty serving of our famous fish and chips, or listen to a traditional Irish jam.
