Good atmosphere, old fashion bar. Great beer selection! The collectibles are worth going here alone, but you probably wont stop at one.

We discovered this as we walked the streets of the gas light area. As college football was on and a convention it was full. It has a reasonable ambience as a Irish pub, nooks and crannies everywhere. Everything happened as you would expect in a good restaurant, the drinks arrived quickly, the meals soon after. We did only order Irish... More

One guy was trying to wait all the tables. He did best he could. Other staff was concerned about everything else but customers. Too many good places to go....

This is a nice Irish pub located in the Gaslight district of San Diego. It is an easy walk from the Convention Center. Has a pretty limited menu but the prices are really moderate for the area. Food was not great but was very good. Service was friendly and prompt.

A sport bar, good for quenching your thirst, but that's all. No history. No ambience. Some baseball memorabilia, not giving this place a special style.

Brunch places around were pretty packed so we stopped in her. The Irish breakfast was not good. The bread they bake fresh was under cooked and overall it was just not worth the price at all.

I'm only giving a 1/5 as you can't give zero. We attempted to go for drink, sat at the bar and were ignored for a solid 5 minutes despite the bar being half empty. We upped & left

During our stay in San Diego, we decided to check out the Gaslamp Quarter and find a restaurant for dinner. We chose Blarney Stone Pub because they had outside seating and we wanted some good Irish food. The hostess was very friendly and seated us outside. While waiting for a server, a group arrived and was seated near us. Many... More
