O'Carroll's Irish Pub: Halifax, NS

O’Carroll’s Irish Pub
1860 Upper Water Street, Halifax, NS (902) 423-4405

As far as pub food goes, nobody in Halifax can match the bangers and mash that O’Carroll’s serves up. O’Carroll’s is a two sided establishment, as one side of the building features a fancy dining experience while opposite the fantastic pub on the right. Known for their food, O’Carroll’s does an outstanding job with their pub by serving good beer with the warmth and hospitality that a pub should. The Irish pub has a beautiful horse shoe bar intended for patrons to communicate with ease rather than the accustomed straight and narrow bar. Many beer and whiskey posters adjourn the walls which are almost mandatory in a pub, while the exposed wooden beams and brick show the age of the building. Located in the pub is a black grand piano that acts as both a piano and a table complete with a set of chairs. Bring in a group and sit around the piano while a local band plays traditional maritime music and don’t expect to pay any cover charge. Pretty soon your feet get stomping and your hands get clapping and before you know it you are singing along with everyone else in attendance. The best Guinness pour in Halifax, great happy hour prices between 4:30pm – 7:00pm Mon-Thurs and terrific pub food, make O’Carroll’s a must stop destination.

Beer Menu – Draught: Keith’s, Keith’s Red, Clancy’s, Carlsberg, Bud Light, Propeller, Garrison, Rickard’s, Pumphouse, Guinness, Kilkenny, Harp, Stella Artois, Leffe Blonde, Hoegaarden, Belle Vue Kriek, Bass and Boddingtons.
