Just across the bridge from the downtown convention center, this thatched-roof Irish pub may be surrounded by palm trees instead of potato fields, but it still offers the ambience and tastes of Ireland. Staffed by Irish immigrants, the large room with a square bar in the center smells of Bass and Harp ales. The Gaelic stew is predictably bland, but the salads and sandwiches are passable. Fish and chips are a good bet here, especially with a pint of Guinness. The live Irish music Thursday through Saturday nights and Sunday afternoon draws a fun crowd, ranging from post-college to early retirees.
