Great bar in the middle of downtown Galveston. Crowd was friendly and fun to interact with. Bartender Buji's a treat...great attitude and very attentive. And, if you ask nicely, he'll even put a splash of Guiness in your Bloody Mary (actually, I think he does...More

This is not my favorite place. As Irish bars go I suppose it's okay. But they allow smoking inside which makes the place miserable.

My husband had to visit this Irish pub, and it did not disappoint. The barmaid was attentive and talkative. She let us try various local beers on tap. We didn't try any food, but it looked tasty.
