McSorley’s Ale House
We love McSorley’s Ale House for its cracker food and friendly atmosphere. With location in Tsim Sha Tsui, Discovery Bay and SoHo (and even Macau!), it’s a popular after-work hangout and is definitely one of the top Irish bars in Hong Kong.
McSorley’s Ale House, G/F, 46 Staunton Street, SoHo, Central, Hong Kong, p. 2385 5515, 中環蘇豪士丹頓街46號地下
With branches in TST and Pok Fu Lam, Delaney’s is one of the most popular Irish bars in Hong Kong. Here you can expect a good selection of craft beers served alongside dishes made with ingredients direct from Ireland. Of course, they play all the major sporting events, and friendly service is the order of the day.
Delaney’s, Basement, Mary Building, 71 – 77 Peking Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong, p. 2301 3980, 尖沙咀北京道71-77 號誠信大廈地庫
Named after the Irish expression Ri Ra agus Rúla Búla (translating to uproar and commotion), Rula Bula is not your average Irish pub. This contemporary pub brings the great Irish service, but in a more contemporary setting in LKF. Founded by an Irishman, Rula Bula is always buzzing and offers a selection of drink specials throughout the week.
Rula Bula, G/F, 58-62 D’Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong, p. 6031 2116, 中環蘭桂坊德己立街58-62號地下
