A great pint of Guinness in this Irish pub. Also I had a hot Pork and peanut butter sandwich great. Worth a visit.

Did not get to taste the things on the menu, as we left the place after approx. 20 minutes without any waiter collecting orders. We even waved several times; no response whatsoever. It wasn't even a busy moment, just uninterested staff unfortunately. Will not return.

Great ambiance, friendly staff and bartender, good beer on draught, reasonable kitchen. Footy on two big screens. Enjoyed an Irish steak with chips, with a Speckled Hen draught to wash it down, best 30 EUR I spent this week. Recommended.

Nice pub but expensive, good terrace on the Leidseplein. Waiters are ok but not specially. The snacks are expensive for what you get.

A proper Irish pub! We visited on three occasions; twice for lunch and once for drinks in the evening. The food was always lovely, especially the fish and chips. All of the staff who served us were attentive and happy to help. When we visited...More

This was another of the places we stopped for a quick drink on the way back to the hotel. After sitting down at a table, we had to wait a long time for any service. We kept seeing a guy walking back and forth every...More

We wanted to grab some beers with friends, but the service was just horrible. It took forever to take our order and it wasn't even that crowded. So, basically, we were waiting for a really long time just to get like two beers. Also when...More

Finding an Irish pub in the centre of Amsterdam as true as Hoopman is a difficult task. Hoopman offers a broad selection of Irish whiskeys, stouts and draughts. As well as Irish drinks, Hoopman offers a great selection of pub grub. Above all our Irish staff will always give you a feeling like you are at home. Hoopman is situated on Het Leidseplein in the bustling centre of Amsterdam where you will find that Hoopman serves as a warm and cosy haven from the busy streets. In the winter you can take shelter for a warm drink inside and in the summer you can refresh yourself with a cool drink on our terrace. Hoopman organizes a ton of events over the year. We always show all main sport events on our screen, from the 6 nations' rugby to the Champions league's soccer. Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated every year with a big party where we have Irish dancers to perform traditional dances throughout the evening. Hoopman is always decorated for special days, on Halloween everything is covered in webs and for Christmas we are covered in lights and surrounded by Christmas trees. Hoopman is sure to give you a good feeling: whether you are Irish or not, our staff will certainly give you a warm Irish welcome to Amsterdam!
