If you're a fan of I'm a celebrity, this is the bar for you.

The customer service was horrific, going for the 'put yours hands up and I'll tell you... More

Food is great value for the portions you get. Staff really friendly and accommodating (swapping food dishes to suit kids etc!) Came in to watch the football and eat early evenings. Smoking venue and small so something to be aware of with small kids.

Stopped in here for a quick pint, wound up staying for a few more. The pour a proper Guinness here, and they have a decent selection of Irish Whiskey. For research purposes, I indulged in both. This was our first night in Lisbon, so I wanted to get some recommendations on where to go and what to see from some... More

Authentic Irish Pub ambience. Great Guinness and Cider. Live music by two talented musicians - fiddle and guitar. Even though the place was jam packed, the service was excellent and everyoe - staff and revellers - had big smiles. Slainte!

Found this place downtown to watch the liverpool fa cup game. Good food and drink at very reasonable prices (6.5 eu for guinness and a shot). Good chicken sandwich and then huge burger with an egg and bacon for the arsenal match.

We wanted to get a bite to eat and watch a football match. The bar is perfect for both. Busy but great service and a big screen. We saw signs for quizzes and live music. The only downside is smoking is permitted inside and everyone seemed to be taking advantage. We had children and didn't stay long because of this.... More
