My GF and I got the name of this pub from the front desk of the hotel we were staying at (Doubletree at JFK/UMass) and they gave us the address. It took us a while to get there (walking) and once we arrived we found ourselves in a nice Irish Pub. We found a table and ordered drinks and dinner.... More

A must visit bar for anyone wanting to catch Glasgow Celtic or any English premier league team playing live on TV. Great bar, good pub food and brilliant atmosphere with an eclectic mix of locals, students, professionals and tourists mixed in with a really great team of people with the craic behind the bar.

Was promoted as a local Irish Pub, but no Harp or Smithwicks. Service was slow and infested with fruit flies. And they don't take American Express.

Had no idea what to expect, but really quite good for the type of place! Fries were great, pretty good beer selection, flatbreads are good. Great option in this neighborhood.

We were visiting Boston for our anniversary and we searched to see if we could watch the Packers game that Sunday and we found that Banshee was hosting a Packers party. We bought our own food and drink, but the place was jam-packed with Packers fans! We lucked out with a seat at the bar downstairs. Big party upstairs too... More

Needed a place to watch the "soccer"; not any old match but the dreaded, and much anticipated, Manchester derby. A number of websites mentioned the Banshee but it came with mixed reviews so I wasn't really sure what to expect. All I wanted was a City win and not be outnumbered by reds. We arrived at 9.30 am and ordered... More

If your like me and you like Premier League Football (can't call it soccer) it's a must visit on a Saturday during the season. Every match can be seen on several screens upstairs and down. Home to Celtic FC Boston branch they have a room upstairs with loads of memorabilia. Two sets of fans at each TV loads of banter... More

Looks dumpy on the outside, but inside it has an authentic Irish pub feel Food was decent, service good. Fair selection of beer. Overall a good experience.
