Had a small reunion with friends. The Pub was central to us all. As you walk in you will first notice the large bar with various TV's with European sports on. You feel as if you are in Ireland.

Wish that it had a bigger beer selection. something not owned by InBev would be good. but the crowd was good, sports bar, decent food. I had the Shepherd's Pie would rate it better than average.

It's a shame the beer selection wasn't quite what you were looking for. I am happy to hear the Shepherd's Pie was tasty, though. If you're ever in the area again, we'd love to have you back. Till then, Tom D., Owner More

Found the Blarney Rock whilst exploring New York and later recommended the Pub by a friend back in UK. Visited 3 times during our stay in NYC. Great bar staff, atmosphere, beer and gorgeous buffalo wings:-)

The Blarney Rock Pub is a great place to stop and have a couple of beers and a bite to eat. Friendly local crowd that is a mix of blue and white collar workers. Bartenders are great, Mike & Ray make you feel at home. I normally duck in here when I'm waiting for my train out of Penn Station.

Talk about Irish luck.... we were aiming for a restaurant and next door and a local hotel bellhop pointed us to the Blarney Rock Pub. It looks like a bar but has restaurant seating in back. Service was Irish and excellent! We enjoyed it a grilled chicken salad a well as the open faced reuben. Drink service was very quick... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
