Huge beer selection - both in bottles and on tap. The Kerry Steak & Cheese is my favorite. I've had a Brewdog Tokyo here (bottle) and a Samichlaus on tap. Thanks for driving, honey!

Good place, lots of fun anytime, the goods- great selection of draught and bottles, great pub grub, and great atmosphere. the bads- parking is a joke for this place, street parking in a less-than-desirable neighborhood, and prices are pretty steep. highly reccommend it if your here for a visit and find that theres nothing to do in hartford, which ill be the first to say that, be prepared to find some fantastic beers, but be prepared to spend for it.

I visited for the second time in a few years last week. Great pub atmosphere: a bit dim, but great tables, bar and paraphrenalia around the walls. Service was ok- great at first, but as the place got busier it took a while to get the bill. Beer selection was ok- mostly Belgians, Irish, English, and InBev beers. Would love to see more Americans and locals. Two parking spaces in front of the place do not give much away. Food was great, even for a vegetarian. Big problem was beer prices- $8.75 for a pour. Not a problem, but prices were not disclosed until the check came.

I have been here a few times, the ambiance is why I come here, it is dim lit and a vary believable Irirsh bar. They have a decent selection of beers, nothing special, almost quantity over qaulity. The staff is very friendly, yet the neighborhood is not exactly nice.

From the outside, this looks like a typical Irish pub. Once inside when you view their beer list, itís clear that this place is anything but typical. The bottle menu is decent, the tap menu usually has some decent beers on. If youíre in Hartford for more than a weekend, this is worth checking out. Otherwise, time would be better spent at City Steam and John Harvards.

This is a typical American Style Irish Pub. They have a bar with some TVs and a few booths. A pretty impressive European Bottle list. They have a fair amount of German beers on the menu. Nothing special on tap really, but they do have some cool offerings when it comes to their bottles. Bottles are a little expensive, though. Worth checking out.-----re-rate 3/25/06---bottle and tap menu are still about the same. You will find a couple of interesting beers on tap, but nothing overly crazy. The bartender they usually have cask ales in the winter, although they only had 1 all winter this year. Menu is interesting, yet the prices are a little inflated. I asked for chicken on my country salad and it was omitted.
