This Irish pub offers full-fare menus and traditional pints of stout along with an array of other beers and spirits. Kirwan’s has a traditional feel to it with multiple rooms, each with a different vibe.  The main bar area includes oversized pub chairs and shares its space with the main dining room. This room also has solo musicians performing several nights a week. For more intimate conversation, head into the whiskey bar in the back. The main bar extends into this hideaway and has a few booths that look out onto Pearl Street.  Upstairs is one of the great views at the Wharf, which looks out over Capital Yacht Club, giving Kirwans a little feel of Galway. Finally, the patio area is covered and is situated along the hustle and bustle of Wharf Street, a good option for people watching.
