Great place for Craft Beer, Oysters, and Best Service around; Really Authentic. For Irish authenticity this is it. The happy hour was great; very creative menu with lots of choices, the value was good but the service was icing on the cake. The Irish music, dark wood, food made this my favorite stop on Rt. 2.

Went here with friends and family and everyone enjoyed the several traditional Irish meals. Shepherds Pie, Fish & Chips, Corned Beef and Cabbage were prepared perfectly and enjoyed by all. The Guinness was poured perfectly also. The waitstaff was courteous and helpful and was not intrusive. I highly recommend this restaurant for family, friends or couples who are looking for... More

A great local Irish Pub on the outskirts of Severn Park. They serve a very good assortment of draft beers along with an ever changing list of food specials. Irish staples like the Shepherds Pie or Fish and Chips are good "go-to" dishes as they are fairly consistent. Service is good - food is served hot and fairly quickly depending... More

Brian Boru is a fun place to meet friends for drinks and food. We particularly like happy hour selections, including a great Seared Ahi Tuna and other fine choices.
