We loved this place so much so we went back a couple of times during our stay. We had someone that suffers a serious nut allergy & the staff went above and beyond to cater for him, which was brilliant. The atmosphere was really relaxed...More

We got a map of the waiter but the first 3 things I ordered were unavailable. Waiter said drinks were changed but maps not yet. Decoration is nice. Service was pretty ok too

Despite an amazing location this Irish pub is very disappointing...2 drinks €18 ....stale wedges €6.50...waiter surly & rude...bar staff equally unfriendly. Demanding we pay the tab at the end of their shift to suit them..not us. Murphys across the square much friendlier..cleaner & cheaper.

Hoopman is a great Irish bar in Leidseplein. We only had drinks but the pint/pints of O'Hara's stout were excellent and the service was great.

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!
