So I've been going to Craic for about 4-5 years now and I can't believe that I haven't wrote a review yet. This Pub is simply the BEST of all. The fact of you getting into a place with so many beers is just delightful,...More

This is a fun, nice, and spacious bar with a good beer and cocktail selection. There's a big outdoor sitting area which is nice.

We had a late dinner at Craic Irish Pub. While we enjoyed the beer selection and the music, the food was rather greasy. The service was good though.

Located in a good zone, good view and vibe but expensive and being just next to many other options is logic less, OK food bad service overall, but its a good option good music

Great place to be with family or friends, really nice outdoors and the service is excellent. They have the place with great photos and the menu has their incredible history. It's a place to go more than one time :)

Nothing all too fancy but the food is made with enthusiasm and soul. Big plates full of food that will join your beer like a newly wed couple in their first night. Amazing noms

Our Airbnb host suggested Craic for good beer and burgers and that is exactly the vibe! Lots of locals watching soccer and many beers to choose from. The burgers didn't blow us away but they were good and we enjoyed the atmosphere.

Even on a Saturday not very busy... a bit rude staff behind the bar... and a check at the entrance, which makes you feel at the airport... even a visitor aged over 50 has to show an ID... just ridiculous!

Not an obvious Irish pub! Struggled to find someone who could support us with the Spanish menu......but good burgers and potato wedges! The jalopeno burger left my mouth tingling! Too much choice of beers for me....but may suit beer lovers! The beer was expensive but...More

No brother, it’s really sad, but it’s because of our time zone which is 8 hour difference from the UK so I don’t think they want to work at 8am on weekends haha
