6. Johnny Foley’s Irish Pub

Johnny Foley’s is located right across from The Handlery Hotel. After a long day of sightseeing we just wanted to go somewhere close for dinner.

We just walked across the street and had a great lowkey night. The steaks were crazy delicious and the Guinness was flowing.
