Lovely old bar with a great selection of beers. Friendly staff, who are all Irish and a great atmosphere. The meals are excellent, tasty and well priced. We thoroughly enjoyed the $15 Sunday Roast. Sunday nights live Irish music was a treat.

My wife and I ate two dinners at the restaurant since we were staying at The Grace Hotel, which is attached to the restaurant. The food and drinks were wonderful. The atmosphere of the restaurant made us feel that we WERE in Ireland, not Australia....More

Great vibe, live band playing awesome music and getting the crowd involved. Some of the patron got a bit rowdy, and the security was straight onto it. There was long line up for the bar, but staff were friendly and the line moved pretty quickly....More

Went Sunday evening . Food was OK but nothing special. Good Guinness. However! The band was brilliant. Marcus playing fiddle guitar and electric cello was outstanding, and Kevin with his tin whistle was very good as well. Go on a Sunday evening to enjoy really...More

If you want a basic feed in a basic pub with basic beers this is for you. It has all the confected atmosphere of an 'Irish' pub. The live music is ok. The screens are ok. The dining area is ok. You won't be wowed,...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
