Yesterday we had a few beers here. Descent prices and friendly staff. They also have a jukebox machine so you can make all other guests listen to your music. Today we had cocktails and snacks, it was nice. The nachos was sold out. Sad!

We always ended each evening here as it was convenient for our hotel. The staff were always friendly and the drinks and food a good price. There is a lovely beer garden at the back.

Love the atmosphere, and the food tasted very good. A bit pricey for being in Riga but considering the good service and food, it's worth it!

Looks like Irish pub as they looks every where around the world (except Ireland:). Noisy, funny and no quality of drinks and food. Food is simple, Guinness tastes as tenuous. Prices are middle-high.

The place looks quaint and like something you could just stroll bye without noticing. I am glad I took a chance and went in without having any knowledge of their online reviews. This was an amazing surprise. Their appetizer fried beef and chicken is also...More

We headed over to watch Ireland dessimate England, but the evening was almost ruined when a party of English fans on a stag weekend arrived. A few of them were very loud and abusive to staff, being a bit overly touchy feely. The poor waitress...More

Paddy Whelan's - the first Irish pub in the Baltic's! Since 1995 we have been offering more than 50 beloved local and global beers and ciders, including the classic Irish Guinness, our own Užava, Brenguļi, Valmiermuiža and other beers, and many more. We also offer a wide range of foods, and because we never want to limit our taste buds, we have traditional Irish dishes, popular burgers and sandwiches, breakfast and lunch offers, popular Latvian foods for our local fans, and our pride and joy - homemade Indian foods at affordable prices! We are still one of the most popular venues in Rīga for live sports broadcasts, leisurely evenings, and a chance to meet local Latvians, local foreigners and guests of the city who have stopped by for a pint of beer, a glass of whiskey and a tasty meal. We are a member of the Latvian Association of Hotels and Restaurants, and we are delighted to help out in improving the hospitality environment in Rīga and throughout Latvia. No matter from where you come and no matter what you do on a daily basis, Paddy Whelan's will always welcome you. Come on in, have a seat, and enjoy a glass of beer. Maybe two.
