...brings a wee bit of Ireland to Boulder. Its bright blue Irish pub store front leads to a quaint, warmly lit interior, accented with polished wooden antique backbar pieces. Its walls are decorated with items that represent Irish music, literature, sport, and history.

The pub offers an excellent selection of both Irish and English brews and well-prepared traditional Irish fare, as well as American dishes - for brunch, lunch and dinner.

On Draft, you’ll find Guinness and Murphy's stout, along with Harp and other lagers, plus a choice of ales, which include Bass Ale, Newcastle Brown Ale, Smithwicks Irish Ale, Tetley's English Ale and other brews.

Menu selections include an Irish breakfast served all day, every day. The Irish breakfast includes imported Irish bangers, rashers, black and white pudding served with two eggs, homemade Irish soda bread, and grilled tomatoes and butter. Other traditional Irish dishes on the lunch and dinner menu include: imported Irish bangers served with beef gravy over homemade roasted garlic mashed potatoes; roasted corned beef and cabbage with herbed red potatoes and carrots, served with horseradish sauce and au jus; Mick's shepard’s pie, served with lean ground sirloin and lamb that is browned with leeks, carrots, peas and onions and simmered in a red ale sauce, and served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes; Gaelic fish and chips - light and flaky cod dipped in a beer batter and fried golden, served with coleslaw, malt vinegar tartar sauce and pub chips. Other items include Boxtys, which are Irish potato pancakes stuffed and rolled up with a choice of fillings, served with a side salad. Boxty fillings include: steak with red peppers, whiskey steak sauce and caramelized onions, topped with Irish cheese sauce; chicken with mushrooms, served with sherry cream sauce and tomatoes and peas, topped with sour cream; salmon with tomatoes, sweet pepper cream and potatoes, topped with dill sour cream; and a vegetable boxty, served with artichocke hearts, white wine cream sauce, mushrooms, tomatoes, zucchini and yellow squash, topped with sour cream.

Most week nights bring a variety of local rock bands and other groups. Tuesday nights are open mic. Sunday nights bring together a lively group of local musicians, who play traditional Irish tunes on concertinas, frame drums, fiddles, guitars, mandolins and tin pipe whistles. And there are some Irish singers, too. Everyone has a good time! The Irish music gets started after a few brews are consumed, around 8 or 9 p.m.

Bring your thirst and your appetite...you will not be dissappointed at Conor O’Neills!
