Owl & Thistle information
One of the best Irish pubs in the city, the dark, multi-roomed Owl & Thistle is located slap-bang downtown but misses most of the tourist traffic (who home in on the more 'themed' Fado) because it's hidden in Post Ave.
Aside from hosting Celtic folk bands or acoustic singer-songwriters who make pleasant noises here most evenings, it serves excellent beer and possibly the cheapest fish-and-chips in the city (around $4 during happy hour). Most importantly, it's run by an Irishman (and his wife).
