Back in the Spring of 2006 two lads and two lasses got together and decided to open up Seoul’s first Irish pub and restaurant with a goal of delivering ice cold beer, strong drinks and great food in a friendly, energetic atmosphere. Four and a half years later in December 2010 we opened a second location in Haeundae, Busan with the exact same premise in mind.
The Food: Back in 2006 we hired the ex executive chef Mark Sumpter from the Intercontinental hotel to set up our menu and train our kitchen staff. This ensured that perfectly grilled steaks, award winning burgers, top selling fish & chips, succulent Irish sausages and made from scratch sides and dressings became the standard. All of our food is created from scratch with only the highest quality-freshest ingredients. For example, we use a higher quality beef for our burgers, not just the cheapest beef available. We also use fresh local chicken breast for our sandwiches and salads and not mass produced frozen chicken. And we use real potatoes to make our mash, not instant mix. We know all these “little” things cost a bit more but we (as well as many food reviewers) believe that you can taste the difference.
The Party: But we aren’t just about the food. Our parties and weekend nights have become legendary. Join us any Friday, Saturday or Sunday , whether it be in the afternoon or at night, and we’ll always have the best entertainment in Itaewon. Fridays are acoustic night, Saturday the DJ keeps the atmosphere upbeat and people tapping their toes and dancing by playing a wide selection of oldies, rock n roll and the latest top 40 hits. Sundays are for the Irish in all of us with ‘Sunday Sessions’ – live traditional Irish music. See our Facebook page for the latest events and updates.
The Slogan: Come for the Food. Stay for the Party.
And sometimes it’s just the little things that make the difference. We take pride in providing the little things like strong drinks, (guaranteed by our No Bullshit Pour Policy®), no extra charge for water, and no extra taxes or service charges.
