Traditional bar with outside street seating, claiming to be the longest serving Irish pub in Australia. Only came for drinks, beer ok but a bit pricey. They do offer a fairly standard menu of pub food at reasonable prices and love music.

Had shepherds pie and a beer in this beautiful old hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful and the selection of beer was varied. Give it a go before a walk across the bridge.

Quaint little Irish pub in the heart of historic old Sydney. Best value meals and plenty of Guinness. Live music to boot.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
