Just dropped in for a pint, but spent the whole evening there with super friendly staff and nice collection of folks inside. It’s a small bar with big heart and darn good chicken wings to boot, just right for happy hour. They were even nice...More

We love coming to Rota because we get to go to O'Grady's! Patrick's hospitality is second to none, and he really has running a bar down to an art. Prompt service, great chat and great choice of drinks (shots are our favourite!). We look forward...More

Not fancy, but the burger is the best in Spain. The bahn mi sandwich is seriously spicy Thai flavor. The wings are crispy and true buffalo flavor - the Thai ones are also tasty. Great beer selection, Guinness on tap. Fun atmosphere.

I did not like it, dark and poor quality food in a city where you can hardly eat bad! Rude staff...busy to flirt with the American sailors!

Great bar, great food.....spectacular staff. A terrific place to come, relax and enjoy food and drink. The place is intimate and you need only look at the walls to see centuries of culture. NOT TO BE MISSED!

O'Grady's has been in business for over 20 years. It is the only Irish owned Irish bar within 100 miles of Rota. We have 3 beers on tap and 16 in bottle (many of which are Irish, American & Spanish craft beers). Great reputation for serving the best bar food in the local area. Dishes include great burgers, shepherds pie, delicious chicken wings, spicy chicken fajitas, etc.. Big mix of clients including Spanish, American, Irish, German, etc...English & Spanish spoken. TV coverage of all major sports, e.G. Rugby, soccer, NFL, gaelic football, hurling, etc...
