    The staff here were absolutely wonderful, really friendly. Plus the crowd for the hurling was full of great banter. If you need that fix of sport, even soccer, this is the place in DC

    Bar staff know what you mean if you ask for a snakebite...so ask for one and have fun!

    $25 brunch is actually a really good deal when it's a $13 entree (like lamb hash) plus bottomless bloody marys for a big-time morning soccer game. Would have drank $25 in beer anyway.

    Go when "That Guy Mike" and his band are playing! It's like a reunion of all your favorite songs from college in a big dance party! Drinks wise, it's your typical Irish pub.

    Might have the best fries I've ever had.

    You must try the 'Fado Jameson and Ginger.' It's delicious! Has a kick from the spice of the ginger beer and if you're a whiskey fan- it's the perfect combo.

    Cheese dip & wedges are delicious!

    Whether your idea of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day comes in the form of a pint of Guinness, traditional Irish fare, or watching the parade, you can find it at Fadó in Chinatown in Washington, DC. Read more

    Classic Irish bar, way cool, really big! Great place to bring a big group of rowdy beer drinkers. (Kind of like our event on July 28!)

  • John

    "Gaelic Pub" is probably a better title for this establishment as it is a higher caliber and arguably more "Irish" pub than any other Irish bar in DC sporting the genre. A fantastic, euro-feel place

    John · June 20, 2012
  • Tracy D.
