THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Barney McColgan's Irish Public House Restaurant Review

: With an atmosphere plucked from the streets of old Dublin, Barney McColgan’s is named for a real person: Philomena McColgan’s dad. McColgan, with her husband Paul Bellamy, opened an Irish pub that’s like two pubs in one. The exterior, with its dark woods and weathered look, says auld sod. Step inside and the pub on the left---named Five Lamps---has a country look with a fireplace. On the right is an urban tavern---Annie Curley---with a long mahogany bar and a library space. The cooking is home-style Irish: steamed mussels, smoked salmon, homemade Irish soda bread, Irish stew and fish ’n’ chips. Breakfast---Irish bacon, sausages, black-and-white pudding, potatoes, beans and fried eggs---is available all day. You can even read an Irish newspaper.
