We had just arrived in San Sebastián and just wanted chill with a drink! We sat at a table and ordered our drinks, we found it very unwelcoming almost like they were serving just because they had to we finished our drinks and went somewhere else!

Called here this week as we were staying close by. Menu was a bit limited - but the food was ok. Bit disapointed that an Irish Bar is closed on a Monday when Ireland are playing in the Euros!

Host completely unwelcoming and a travesty of how to welcome customers. Irish pubs are renowned for their welcome but no such luck here. Was hoping to have a drink with friends to celebrate a birthday but we're told to leave after singing happy birthday.

Visited today and was told to leave after being in the establishment for 2 hours. What is my take away, the owners classified us as a drunks abroad. All of us are established in business and were celebrating our 40th birthdays. What did the owner achieve by asking us to leave ? A very disappointing approach by an Irish bar.... More

Never go there- the owners are unbelievable grumpy and horrible - if you are British you are out of luck - I don't think they have ever served any real/ professional drinkers - a shocking state of affairs for an Irish Pub - I've drunk in Itisg bars all around the world - any they have been fine - but...

We literally only came here to watch the RWC match between Ireland and Italy. When we arrived we spotted quite a few other Irish there with the same idea but they were showing the Man Utd match at the time. I had gone in two days previously to ensure they would be showing the rugby so was surprised when I... More

Great decor, good selection of bottled ales and drinks generally. Friendly and welcoming. Thursday nights gets packed with great atmosphere. Didn't try the food here.

Maybe we went on a quiet night, but the bar had 5 customers, and was a bit depressing. Staff were friendly, but it has the plastic irish pub feel, and the staff were even unable to play Spanish music, sticking the soundtrack of irish pop songs.

Solid as a rock. Beer was fine didn't get to eat. Atmosphere was fine and service prompt. Wanted to try Guinness but didn't get time.
