This is a really nice Irish pub. There is a good atmosphere and a few little booths if you are lucky enough to get one. The service is good and prices are quite reasonable. The steak and guinness pie is a favourite.

We went to this pub numerous times during our stay in Melbourne. The food was lovely really recommend the guinness chicken. It's a really cosy Irish Pub and well worth a visit. The pints of Guinness were really great too.

Busy little pub with a good atmosphere. We both had one of the specials, steak & Guinness pie which was hearty, tasty and filling. Service was a little inattentive at first but pleasant enough. Decent pub food, reasonably priced, in a pleasant relaxed atmosphere.

Spent a few days in Melbourne and went in every day. Julian, Laura, Charlotte and Ella all made me feel like I was a regular. Very friendly and welcoming.

Went here for drinks and a snack on a saturday afternoon. What a great little pub. Lovely atmosphere and nice Irish decor with an open fire (although it wasn't lit cos it is summer after all). We had Herb/Garlic bread and Wedges. They were delicious and filled up the two of us. The staff were friendly. We loved it and... More

I went with a friend for a quick Guinness before the cricket. The beers was ok, but the place was particularly small. Now I know you want it to be authentic but you can't swing a cat in this place. I'm also not a lover of pubs where you have to traipse upstairs to find a toilet, like an Everest... More

The pub is exactly like you would expect an Irish pub to be. There is old looking beams, quaint bar and plenty of Irish bric--brac. Spread over two levels the pub feels spacious and welcoming. Ok, so down to the food, I had the buffalo wings, yes theu were very hot (spicy) followed by the shepherds pie, it came in... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
