We thoroughly enjoyed stopping here for lunch. The food was delicious. The staff was very friendly. We wish we could have stayed to listen to the live music.

Nice staff and good food. Enjoyed the Irish accents on all of the staff. Great selection of Irish Whiskey and cold Guinness on tap. We stopped in twice and were extremely well treated both times.

Advertised breakfast until 11:00am and then because Tall Ships in port decided to end breakfast at 10:30 am. No explanation, no flexibility. We won't be back!!

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
