It has an Irish pub feel until you descend downstairs. The DJ was awesome, and as Buddette watched her not sober friends dancing the DJ came up and asked why she was not on the floor, she told him she didn't know how to dance,...More

This place is great! We love to go for the Monday night special of Fish & Chips for 1/2 price. The cod is perfect, fries are great, and the apple slaw tops it off. If you're in the mood for dessert, try the bread pudding!!!

A great restaurant and pub. The perfect combination of atmosphere, location (choose outdoor dining so you can see the Waterway), and excellent food. And the prices are very reasonable!! We had a wonderful evening! (The bread pudding is a must!)

Nothing to write home about...SMOKING is permitted on the back patio, so if you want to smell like smoke go there...Wings were overcooked...

I'm sorry our wings didn't impress you. Like quite a few places, we do have a smoking section outside, and plenty of smoke-free seats inside. We hope we can really wow you on your next visit. Sincerely, Brian Young Managing Partner

The Goose's Acre Irish Pub stood on Main Street, Midleton, Ireland, immediately in front of "The Goose's Acre," a historical landmark named by locals where geese gaggles grazed in the 1800's. The pub opened in 1886 and was handed down from father to son through the years. In 2005, the pub was forced to close to make way for new development. While back in Ireland visiting relations, Brian Young and Colm O'Neill proposed purchasing the contents of the pub, to include both bars, from the previous owner who was distraught over the pending loss of the pub's history and heritage. Although it meant shipping the pub across the Atlantic Ocean, the previous owner was ecstatic that The Goose's Acre Irish Pub would continue its traditions of bygone times. Brian Young and Colm O'Neill made the decision to bring this authentic pub to The Woodlands to share the romance and history of years past. We welcome you to pull up a chair and enjoy the experience of The Woodlands only authentic European Pub. You'll find Happy Hour (all day long!), a traditional yet inventive bar and dining menu, the best drinks a most a truly irreplicable Irish Pub feel with the beautiful, hardwood fixtures and original furnishings.
