Pubs & Bars

Philomena's Irish Sports Bar & Kitchen


Philomena's is a huge favourite in central London. The secret to their popularity is their buzzing atmosphere and the fact that they have four sky boxes meaning they can have four different sports on at once. Decent food, some decent beer and super friendly staff make this a cracking place to head whenever Ireland are playing on the box.

Down in Fulham, McGettigans is always a hive of activity when London Irish are playing on TV. They're big fans of Gaelic footy here as well, making it well worth a visit during the GAA finals.

Oxford Arms Camden


This family run pub is very popular locally and plays some of the more niche Irish offering. For example if you're after a bit of hurling or say some action from the Setanta Cup, check the Oxford Arms' listings and head down. They've five screens in the main bar and are always busy on weekends. Head down early to avoid disappointment!
