We were in Old Riga on a month long trip and were looking for somewhere with cuisine that was different from the surrounding restaurants. While the portions are large here, they were of poor to average quality. We ordered burgers and my daughter wouldn't eat hers because she said the meat tasted funny. I would guess it was made from...

Excellent pub, reasonable prices, great staff and loads of screens showing various sports events, with good music on in the background. I had the homemade curry and was better than many curry houses I have tried in the UK, with amazing nan bread. Other people had other dishes including the platter and everyone very happy with the food. There was... More

Good beer selection and good jukebox! Lively bar on the weekend with a good atmosphere and friendly staff. Not overly Irish in nature but recommended nonetheless!

Good place to spend your evening in Riga. Have a drink and order some of the typical Irish food. Enjoy traditional Irish music or watch some sports on one of the big screens.

Didn't like the feel of this pub. Not very welcoming with little atmosphere. There are better Irish pubs in Riga

Paddy Whelan's - the first Irish pub in the Baltic's! Since 1995 we have been offering more than 50 beloved local and global beers and ciders, including the classic Irish Guinness, our own Užava, Brenguļi, Valmiermuiža and other beers, and many more. We also offer a wide range of foods, and because we never want to limit our taste buds, we have traditional Irish dishes, popular burgers and sandwiches, breakfast and lunch offers, popular Latvian foods for our local fans, and our pride and joy - homemade Indian foods at affordable prices! We are still one of the most popular venues in Rīga for live sports broadcasts, leisurely evenings, and a chance to meet local Latvians, local foreigners and guests of the city who have stopped by for a pint of beer, a glass of whiskey and a tasty meal. We are a member of the Latvian Association of Hotels and Restaurants, and we are delighted to help out in improving the hospitality environment in Rīga and throughout Latvia. No matter from where you come and no matter what you do on a daily basis, Paddy Whelan's will always welcome you. Come on in, have a seat, and enjoy a glass of beer. Maybe two.
