Good place to drink on the patio by the water. Avoid the margarita pizza. Very reasonable happy hour prices.

I went with three of my friends and all of the food was good, but we enjoyed sitting outside and doing some people watching. It's a fun and lively atmosphere.

Didn't eat here. Just had a few pints. Was too crowded. There was a wait to get a table and we ended up standing around. I would go back.

We really enjoyed being on the outdoor patio. This was our 1st meal in Texas and the server was so sweet and friendly. We were intrigued by the deviled eggs and our server recommended we try them. They were delicious! It was a very different...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.
