Really comfy, fun place. Ordered off their Winter Menu. Guinness Beef Stew Beef and sauce served in dish and on the side perfectly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside red potatoes. Delicious fresh vegetables sautéed but not overdone. Would highly recommend. Had groupon worth $30. 2 beers and 2 entrees paid $5 plus tip.

Our family visited the Curragh Irish Pub one evening for dinner, lured in by a good Groupon deal giving a discount on the food we ordered. The meals that we had were great, and the service and atmosphere fit the restaurant and everyone was very happy with the choice of venue for the evening. Recommended

Not very crowded on a Sunday afternoon and relatively quote atmosphere. Food was good and surprisingly broad menu. One of us had the Irish Stew which was plentiful and rich. The little house salad was even good, with a variety of veggies and lots of coutons. Another of our party had the lox and goat cheese. That also was enough... More

We go here often for casual dining. They have the best corned beef whether it's on the Reuben sandwich or boxtie. Their Shepherds pie, fish and chips and Dublin burger always satisfies. A local family favorite for us when we have a taste for Irish food.

I ordered fish and chips as everyone commented on how good they were. They were ok, but I've had better. The wife had shepherds pie and thought it reminded her of Dinty Moore Beef Stew. Oh well may not eat here again.

Located on a strip of Northwest Highway, where there are a few restaurants, even a couple other Irish pubs, Curragh sets itself apart from the rest with good Irish selections. We started out with mozzarella cheese sticks and they were the lightest cheese sticks I have ever had. The kids absolutely loved them. The Guinness cheese soup was very good.... More

The Curragh is wonderful with groups. Very easy to make a reservation for 20 or more. The group can order right off the menu and all be served meals at the same time. Food is very good.
