Took my two adult grandchildren to dinner recently. We ate outside to enjoy the waterway, but there was a running club that was constantly coming in and out of the area. They were loud, stretching, had their dogs, etc. The atmosphere wasn't at all what...More

I think the food vs price combination is average. The Service and View/Atmosphere are excellent - recommend for drinking vs eating

Here for lunch this time. Very tasty food, and the Black Butte Porter beer on tap was excellent. Very attentive service, including manager visiting our table. Will visit again.

I am a frequent diner for lunch here. Most of the time I pick up my food to-go, but sometimes I sit at the bar and eat my meal. I am a very tolerant person and never mind the occasional mistake. I rarely say anything...More

We sat outside on the patio overlooking the water, and with the fans blowing, it was very pleasant. The food was a little disappointing, the steak sandwich had very little steak/filling and way too much untoasted bread. The coleslaw was not good either. My husbands...More

The Goose's Acre Irish Pub stood on Main Street, Midleton, Ireland, immediately in front of "The Goose's Acre," a historical landmark named by locals where geese gaggles grazed in the 1800's. The pub opened in 1886 and was handed down from father to son through the years. In 2005, the pub was forced to close to make way for new development. While back in Ireland visiting relations, Brian Young and Colm O'Neill proposed purchasing the contents of the pub, to include both bars, from the previous owner who was distraught over the pending loss of the pub's history and heritage. Although it meant shipping the pub across the Atlantic Ocean, the previous owner was ecstatic that The Goose's Acre Irish Pub would continue its traditions of bygone times. Brian Young and Colm O'Neill made the decision to bring this authentic pub to The Woodlands to share the romance and history of years past. We welcome you to pull up a chair and enjoy the experience of The Woodlands only authentic European Pub. You'll find Happy Hour (all day long!), a traditional yet inventive bar and dining menu, the best drinks a most a truly irreplicable Irish Pub feel with the beautiful, hardwood fixtures and original furnishings.
