    Am always so pleasantly surprised by how good the food is here for a pub. Servers are friendly, draft beers a plenty, fun trivia. Great neighborhood spot, whether you watch soccer (footy?) or not.

    My friend rented the 2nd floor out for a graduation party- rental was free if alcohol sales were a certain amount. We had a blast! I highly recommend for your next function!

    Unofficial home of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), the Banshee is where you'll find local Irish athletes after their matches. It's also where they gather to watch just about any sporting event. Read more

    The Irish bartender is the best, he makes me feel like I'm back across the pond. Leave after dinner though- music gets so loud i couldn't talk to the person next to me. headache-city.

    Great local place. Kronenburg beer is good. I had never had it nor seen it in a Boston bar. Burgers were ok and fries so so. Next time Ill try the fish and chips or something more Irish.

    Great draught selection, super nice bartender, but there were tons (and i mean a LOT) of fruit flies flying all around the bar, which made the experience kinda gross.

    Don't order a cocktail in here. The crowd of local Irish guys won't let it go. The TVs always have European sports on, so head in for soccer, Gaelic football, rugby, what have you.

    The breakfast skillet is outstanding. Perfect for when you show up hungover for some early morning footy.

    The Banshee is home to Boston's Packers meetup on game days. If you can't get the green and gold at home, join some fellow fans upstairs!
