Finn's is a friendly local pub filled with travelers, ex-pats, locals and more. We have a good selection of drinks, a warm fire, Irish pub grub, free pool, darts and foosball and show tons of live sports. It's good spot to meet people early evening and then the party gets lively as the night goes on. We're Irish owned and run and try to mix the best of Irish hospitality and warmth with Ecuadorian charm. We hope you'll enjoy your time with us - many have found it hard to leave! :)

Friendly Irish Pub

The staff at Finn McCools is always friendly and welcoming. The pub food is very good, Irish Stew and the fish and chips were delicious.

We went to watch an Ireland football match here. There are good drinks offers (2 Black Russians for $4.50 among plenty of others) and food is served also. Drinks prices, in general, not bad. It was quiet for the match (it was 12pm though!) but I'm sure would be a good spot at night!

This place is great if you want to enjoy some beers and watch tv for some sports, we went with my friends to watch basketball finals which actually is not common in other bars, I liked attention there

We had dinner here and it was delicious. The portions were generous and for a decent price. You can get a chicken and mushroom pie and other comforts from home. The beer was also a good price and came in draught form. The place had a good atmosphere and always had a good amount of people in. The staff were... More

After spending time at a number of restaurants and bars in Quito where I was the only person present who did not speak Spanish, it was very pleasant to find Finn McCools, where the entire staff and all of the patrons spoke English and where mostly from English speaking countries. I did not have any food on that visit but... More

I always try to find the coolest Irish Bar where ever I go. Catarina and Jaime do a amazing job taking care of their patrons. They have a great selection of whiskey and the kitchen cranks out some awesome burgers.

Had a great time here on a Saturday night. They show a wide array of North American and European sports on tv. The owners and friendly and outgoing. The food is above average and the drinks are reasonably priced.
