The Liffey is a very conveniently located Irish pub across from the Xcel so you can park once and then walk for your before or after event meal. We were early so we got seats easily, but there was a waiting line when we finished....More

We stopped here on a whim after the St. Paul ice show. It was fantastic. If you like Rubens, you have to give this one a try. My buddies had burgers and they were great also! The thick cut fries were seasoned perfectly also!

We've eaten at the Liffey a few times over the years. They offer pub fare with enough choice to satisfy everyone. It's a busy place before events at the Xcel Energy Center, but they are used to handling the crowds! Top Tip: Don't be discouraged...More

The indoor pub is.. as my sister in-law uses a wheelchair. Not sure about the outdoor/upstairs beer garden but I THINK there's elevator access.
