While spending a long weekend in Amsterdam I visited this Irish pub (with real Irish staff) which was a nice cosy little pub. The Guinness was a good pint and the prices of the bottled cider was reasonable. We also got some snacks off the menu and they were well priced and tasted good. I will definitely visit again.

Nice bar, friendly staff, and great Irish bears. In summer you can sit outside which is nice for smokers.

On a recent visit to Amsterdam with two friends from the states we found Hoopman our last stop on many nights. Our last visit only a few days ago on Friday was the best. With a good choice of beers and enough customers moving in and out of the pub made the night go fast. Our server Phoenix with smiles... More

I write my review as I sit at the tables outside, so bewildered to how I was just treated by a fellow Irish person. We visited Hoopman Irish pub on the day of our arrival. We had a lovely brunch with fantastic service before heading off on our merry way sight seeing. After a late night site seeing and a... More

Ordered 2 drinks, Guinness and Amstel, 13.60 for the drinks. The Amstel was about a inch down, I politely asked the bar maid would she just put a head on the lager, she rudely point blank refused, she snapped and told me "that's how drinks are served here" won't be going back.

Finding an Irish pub in the centre of Amsterdam as true as Hoopman is a difficult task. Hoopman offers a broad selection of Irish whiskeys, stouts and draughts. As well as Irish drinks, Hoopman offers a great selection of pub grub. Above all our Irish staff will always give you a feeling like you are at home. Hoopman is situated on Het Leidseplein in the bustling centre of Amsterdam where you will find that Hoopman serves as a warm and cosy haven from the busy streets. In the winter you can take shelter for a warm drink inside and in the summer you can refresh yourself with a cool drink on our terrace. Hoopman organizes a ton of events over the year. We always show all main sport events on our screen, from the 6 nations' rugby to the Champions league's soccer. Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated every year with a big party where we have Irish dancers to perform traditional dances throughout the evening. Hoopman is always decorated for special days, on Halloween everything is covered in webs and for Christmas we are covered in lights and surrounded by Christmas trees. Hoopman is sure to give you a good feeling: whether you are Irish or not, our staff will certainly give you a warm Irish welcome to Amsterdam!
