Nice clean pub. They have a lot of space and tables to accomodate large groups of people. Food is mainly meat. I had a very good freshmade burger with fries. I recommend for easygoing meetings. Price are good.

Love this place! The staff are fantastic. Not only are they friendly but I'm in awe of how they stay relaxed and fun loving during the hectic nights, which are quite often in this lively spot. The food is typical pub grub of the best quality and the drinks selection is everything you would expect from a decent irish pub.... More

The service is kind and quick. Food is good considering that this is a pub and not a restaurant. Big place, so easy to find a seat.

Great food, Guinness, drinks, music and service. You can't go wrong in this wonderful Irish Pub. It has everything. All the sports you could want to watch. Live music. Wait staff is exceptional. The beer garden is perfect place to relax and enjoy an Irish or German beer.

Our group ate here a few years back and it was delicious. Even as a non-beer drinker, I enjoyed the cozy atmosphere.

Located in the second "heart" of Essen, this unique Irish restaurant is one of the few ones where you sometimes can order in English! The food variety is not that great but most of the dishes taste really nice. They sometimes organise parties, which are also cool to attend. The prices are normal

Thank edmanikas
