This was a real pub with a great atmosphere and friendly waitress. I was there with some friends and we ate the burger and loved it all, as well as the beer.More

Great atmosphere. Full sized pints of the best Irish beers and very tasty (side) dishes. If you are in Leeuwarden with friends go here at least once. It's a great place.

A great range of beers and a great building, with some outside seating, weather permitting. A great place for a relaxing drink with friends or a loved one.

Great pub...definitely go there for a drink, but for a special dinner, I would not recommend it. The food is okay, but not outstanding.

Great pub with regular live music and the typical dry comments of staff that you would expect in an Irish pub. Good place to catch up with old friends.

Paddy O’ Ryan is an Irish pub/ eetcafe where you can treat yourself to a pint of lager or our fine Irish beers, or several other nice drinks, as well as being able to order a lovely meal from the Irish kitchen. Our Irish menu offers food like fish & chips, burger or the famous Irish Stew. At Paddy O’ Ryan you can regularly enjoy LIVE music. It’s either traditional Irish music or related to Ireland in some way. Daily international sportgames on Sky Sport. Our staff is multi-national, so it isn’t that strange to hear English spoken behind the bar. Paddy O’ Ryan the Irish pub where young and old of different nationalities meet!
